I fail to see how the original purchase price of an old piece of equipment has any bearing on its current worth. Technology moves forward. The old Delta and Powermatic cast iron 14 inch saws (and their modern counterparts) are good machines but they are nowhere in the same league as today’s 14 inch welded steel frame saws in terms of rigidity, blade tensioning ability and overall performance.
