Yes i would have thought 1k to 1.2k based on just what has hit CL recently…granted no one really knows the exact transaction price unless you were involved.
Brad, what are the most desirable years for this saw holding condition of saw constant?

Trying to base a price on what is ‘recent’ is not really ideal… I’ve seen people put stuff out with crazy stupid prices, and those are the ones you find as they stay out there for a long time. The reasonably priced (and killer deals) come and go quick, and you may not even seen them at all if you only check infrequently. Know what you want, set up some alerts, have cash in hand and be ready to pounce when the real deal shows up.

As for age, Delta sold their machinery division to Pentair in 1984 (and renamed the company to the Delta International Machine Corporation). Before that, they pretty much had remained the same since their inception in the late 30’s with just a few changes. After Pentair got them, they started cutting costs by doing stuff like switching from a NEMA starter to a cheaper IEC type, using thinner sheet metal and incorporating a lot more plastic. Nothing major, but noticeable to anyone familiar with the older machines.
