I’m fairly new to this and of course new to the market of used tools but that just doesn’t seem to be the case for my area. Nothing comes close to the price of the Craftsman I’m looking at. Check these listings.

That first Unisaw looks to be a completely restored machine (note the non-Delta paint color) and would be better than new, and the second one is a 5hp beast. Those are pretty typical prices for a vast majority of areas (including mine), not just yours. But the real problem is:

I’ve been looking on all selling media outlets constantly for a good week now.

As I said, “If you play your cards right”. That involves patience and persistence, not just taking a snapshot of what is available at the moment. The best time to find the really great deals is when you don’t have a pressing need. Since you are getting that C-man, you will have a saw to use and can keep an eye out for a better deal. When you find it, jump on it, and sell your C-man for roughly the same price you paid for it. The good deals last maybe an hour or two, so take note of OWWM rule #5 :)

Cheers,
Brad
