Sadly I don’t have the space for that saw as is, though it would be perfect because I envision doing a fair amount of plywood ripping in the future. The seller was willing to cut down the rails and separate it from the base for me so I could fit it in my garage, but he didn’t have a blade guard or splitter so that would be another $200 or so on top of the $500 saw which is a lot more than I want to spend.

I did notice a local shop has a Grizzly 1022 for sale for $500. What I’ve read about that saw is it’s a little older but a solid saw. Has a blade guard and (I think) riving knife based on the pictures. It’s pretty close to me so I’m going to go check it out in person and ask some questions. http://www.timber-woodworking.com/site1/usedEquipSpecs.aspx?equipment_ID=3226

The search continues!

Thanks
