Well, the Delaware example has a much better fence, it's newer and has some portability with the wheels. It doesn't have the full cast wings. Again, big disclaimer, I'm not an expert on table saws or their relative values by any means. However, at $500 I think he overpaid for the saw and will be looking to get close to what he put into it. I'd keep looking.

There is some good advice in this thread. Craftsman, Rigid, Grizzly and Delta all make good saws that pop up used in your range. Patience will pay off. Use Searchtempest daily for your region and reach out on a good deal quickly. In the meanwhile do some research. Many great threads on table saws here. (Yocalif did a lot of legwork for you too so cruise those if you haven't already.)

Good luck!

Look for an old used Rockwell unisaw or powermatic 66. I just sold a unisaw for 500. a little more than you wanted to spend,but I thing you would be alot happier with the best. Also you can get all your money back when you sell it. just my .02c but I've been messing with this stuff since 1974.

I just saw that a forum member is selling his Rigid TS in the St Louis area. If you can make the trek it might be your saw.

I tried to grab two old Rockwell model 10s in great condition, but they were already sold by the time I got a call back from the sellers. (Sad Panda).

I don't know if I was willing to pop $400+ for a TS I expect to get something that is medium quality but looks fairly new. Even med. quality is a very good TS. Paying $400 for a really old saw even if it works good, there are things to considers, such as motor may go, bearings may go, etc. There is no guarantee with a newer used saw either that is why the name is important, thus the parts inside should last, and thus a newer saw should have no real problems.

Here are a couple more examples of potential good deals. I know thing about these particular TS / brands, again I can only comment on Craftsman 22124 or 22114.

Well, the hunt is still on. I'm gong to look at a Delta Model 10 tomorrow. He is asking $225 for it. I'll have to see what the quality is of the saw. That seems a bit high for this model saw considering the last two I've missed on Craigslist were in the $150-200 dollar range.

The biggest problem is I don't have much free time to travel to other cities to look at saws right now. That and the price of gas I may as well just buy a new Rigid saw if you figure in how Mich extra money I could make at work given the fact its six hours round trip to Oklahoma City or Kansas City. I was hoping to get a nice saw for about $200, but I may save my denies and buy one of the Rigid saws from Home Depot.

saws

I would fine a used rockwell unisaw and fix it up. used usa made is better than new import junk. If the powermatic is an usa made its good too.

I'm not sure exactly what model contractor saw it is (ie 34-***) but the guy said it was a mid 90's model. Is like to find out what model it is so I could buy the blade guard/splinter.
