Unless you want a saw today…(and I know that feeling)...

Be patient and keep looking.

i have been looking for a used unisaw for 6 months on craigslist for a year here in wi. most have been 800-1200 dollars. or 500 miles away. so yesterday wife and i went to an estate sale in lacross. lady said there s some tools in gaurage so off i went. junk everywhere, old lawn mowers rakes,standard stuff. so i saw some pipe clamps in the corner,picked up 2 and my mouth dropped open,there was a unifence leaning against the wall… i asked the 70 year old woman if she had the rest of the saw? she said it s over there covered up.have a look she said. pulled cover off and it was a 3 hp 34-802 in really pretty decent shape. asked how much would you take for it? she says 400 dollars. so off i went to u haul picked up a truck .took 3 of us to get it in the truck got it home and had to take it apart in truck to get it out by myself with a dolly. will post pictures when cleaned up. her neighbors were there helping her with her estate they helped with loading . i m really excited i got the saw so cheap.i m retired and spent all day cleaning it up by the part number it appears to be a 1992.

Also consider where you’re going to put it. A full on cabinet saw can be a very heavy behemoth weighing 700 lbs. The motor alone could be 60-70 lbs.
