I don’t think either one is a good deal, for a few reasons.

- The Unisaw is an older, right tilt machine. Not a deal breaker by any stretch, but inferior to left tilt.

- The talk about “a business” makes me wonder if it’s been used in a commercial environment. That’s not a deal breaker either, but a factor in that it’s likely been used harder and could have not been maintained properly.

- $1400 is very steep considering you can get a brand new, left tilt, riving-knife-equipped Grizzly 1023 for about $1500 delivered to your door. Or, you can even get a brand new Unisaw for ~$2500.

The Powermatic is an absurdly high price for a used saw, even a top notch one like the 66. A brand new PM2000 is ~$3000
