I had a griz for 10 years no issue. I had the left tilt. I prefer my blade tilting away from the fence. I paid 1500 for mine new (1023slx) and got 800 used. I have a sawstop now, and to be honest only upgraded to get 5hp and safety.

If it were me, I’d look for an old delta and they come up from time to time. The old ones could have to have bearings replaced, which is not too awful bad. I’d get a magnetic base with dial indicator to test arbor. It should not be sloppy. If so, good bargaining point.

I’d also do the nickle test. Stand a nickle on edge and you can start the saw and it does not fall and cut it off and it does not fall when it spends down, it’s good.

If you can do a CS with 3hp min, (assuming you can do 220v). If you can do 600-800 you will have a lot more options, but have seen some deals if you can be patient.. Good luck! Cheers!
