how much did you pay if I may ask you ?? :<))

She was asking $400, I offered $250. A couple days later she got back to me and said $300, I told her that $250 was the highest that I could go. She said deal. I overheard her say to someone else that the only other offer she got was $150.

Personally I think $200-$300 is a fair price. I went through it and cleaned everything (20 years of dust and a little bit of sawdust) and tuned it up and it is a quality machine. The only thing I did not like were the cast mounts for the table, they look a bit weak. Back when these were originally sold they were priced right around $800, some sellers won’t realize that you can now get a pretty nice, brand new saw for $600-$700.

Overall I’m happy and excited to get years and years of use out of it. If you do pick it up, take a friend with you to help load it, it’s got some heft to it.

If also like to get that part # to have one on hand just in case.
