I went and looked at the saw again and looked up the serial number. Turns out it is a 1980 model with a 2hp single phase motor. It hasn’t run in quite some time, 6-8 years, and is just collecting dust. I offered $100, and he said that he was closer to $500. We talked for a little while about what it might take to get it running, and he started to see why my offer was so low. I did not get the saw, but who knows what the future may hold. At least now he knows I’m interested in it.

I ended up getting a little bit of hardwood and a 1/2” sheet of pine ply to make a few flat panel cabinet doors for my outfeed table, and we parted ways.

I was glad I didn’t offend him with the low offer, because he is a great supplier for me. A lot cheaper than the hardware stores…I get it for barely above his cost. Job number one: keep the supplier happy.

Thanks for all of the input and help. If anything happens in the future, I’ll fill you in.
