Personally, I wouldn’t get too excited about the saw. Yes, it’s true, that the fence is nice for the money. However, a cut power cord is something that most people don’t want to deal with. I’ve found ‘fixer-upper’ type stuff on craigslist doesn’t sell very well, usually. It seems most everyone wants a plug-and-play deal.

Also, the extended home-made table is nice, but only if you have the room for it. If you don’t have that much space, then it’s a negative.

I’d probably offer him $100 or less. I doubt it will sell for $150, just because it’s a fixer upper.

Also, note that saw came with a splitter and blade guard that appear to be missing (they are not shown in the photos). It’s also missing that little yellow round insert in the table.

Those saws are common, but they work well. I got one with the original base, splitter, etc. for $150 (but not that nice fence). There’s no rush to buy this particular saw.
