I bought it new from Wilke Machinery. It has/is serving me well. The only complaint I have about the saw is the method used to lock the blade elevation/angle. The design is such that it pinches the adjustment wheel between a stop and a smaller locking knob. Every couple of years, I have to disassemble the mechanism and readjust the stops to make sure the elevation locks securely and doesn’t shift slightly during use.

The other design flaw (my opinion) is that when tilted to a 45 degree angle, the weight of the motor cause the blade trunnion to rack slightly so that the blade is not exactly parallel with the rip fence. I have learned to compensate for the problem but it is annoying because it does cause some burning of the the stock.
