I don’t think either one is a good deal, for a few reasons.

- The Unisaw is an older, right tilt machine. Not a deal breaker by any stretch, but inferior to left tilt.

- The talk about “a business” makes me wonder if it’s been used in a commercial environment. That’s not a deal breaker either, but a factor in that it’s likely been used harder and could have not been maintained properly.

- $1400 is very steep considering you can get a brand new, left tilt, riving-knife-equipped Grizzly 1023 for about $1500 delivered to your door. Or, you can even get a brand new Unisaw for ~$2500.

The Powermatic is an absurdly high price for a used saw, even a top notch one like the 66. A brand new PM2000 is ~$3000

Jonah,

Thanks for the information as I though it was steep as well. I wouldn’t even consider the 66 that guy has as I knew it was high. Maybe I will go with a Grizzly but liked that Delta. In your opinion what would be a good deal price for it?

It all depends on location. I would probably pay $800 and $1000 at most and that is if I really needed it.
The cleaner adds some value but honestly, not that much to me. Does it also come with blades? Other accessories that he doesn’t mention?

I doubt that guy would go for that but I always try to get the low end on any pricing.

Considering the age of both saws and the
fact that newer models with riving knives are
out now, I think the asking prices are steep.

If I were shopping for a cabinet saw I would
only offer around $1000 for the Unisaw. You
won’t get far making such offers if you’re not
willing to walk away. I always make an offer
over the phone, not on the spot. Unless the
machine has been misrepresented I work out
the price with the seller before driving to look.

Another vote for too high (on both). I had that same Unisaw (with a Unifence instead of the Bies) and I only paid $1450 new with a mobile base in 2001. The Uniguard may be worth something, but not much. I’ve seen PM’s bring as much as $1600 and I felt that was too much. His price is really over the top. That said, if either one gets that much then I guess they were worth what was asked. I sold my Uni with a whole lot more extras for $1000 and felt that was about the market for it. The PM I value at around $1200-$1400, but that might be a tad low for a lot of areas.

You can usually get an idea of where the price is by looking at how long they have sat out there… the Unisaw has been out there for almost a month, and the PM for almost two weeks. Good deals go in days, really good deals go in hours. The exception to that rule is when the damn owner sells the machine and doesn’t remove the ad, so it just sits there until it expires on its own :(

Although you can use that fact as a negotiation point… if the seller isn’t getting any serious inquires and it’s been sitting out there for a while, they are a bit more motivated to drop the price in order to get it sold. Bottom line is that it never hurts to throw out an offer for what YOU think it’s worth and how much you are willing to spend. They can always just say no, or just ignore you. No harm, no foul, and there will always others showing up in the future.

And just an FYI – the “Platinum Edition” saws were just a marketing campaign. Basically just gave them a custom paint color and threw in a couple of goodies to sweeten the deal. There is nothing inherently special about them unless you just like the paint color :)

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks for the advise everyone big help. I told the guy with the Powermatic I would give him 1300 for it and he response was

“I have already declined an offer for $2000. Perhaps that wasn’t prudent, but I know it has a higher value”

With that said I may try to get the Unisaw for 1000.00 and if not I will walk away and keep looking. May even go for a new Grizzly.

I plan on posting my works here and if I have anymore pop up and need advise I know where to go. Thanks again for all your time and knowledge!!!!!

I have the exact same year Unisaw, purchased new. I can’t remember what I paid, but as others have said here, you should be able to negotiate for a discount. Not mentioned, but I assume it is a hp motor.

It’s a great saw, well built. The only gripe I have with mine is the typical Delta oversized miter slots. A few thousandths over 0.750”. The problem is that 99% of aftermarket accessories for miter slots are actually a few thousandths undersized to guarantee they will fit “tight” saws (Craftsman comes to mind).

Net result is having to dink around with these accessories to improve their fit.

Just my $0.02 8^)

That sounds like bullshit from the PM owner. $1000 would be my top offer for the Delta. Maybe offer $900 and be prepared to pay $1000?

The air cleaner and guard add little value IMO.

I offered 900 to the guy with the Delta Unisaw and he said 1000 without the air cleaner. I think I may jump on it. With that said when I go to get it is there anything previous owners can tell me to look for that I should away from it if I see. I know from the picture provided it looks clean and in good shape.

Patience…..

I shopped for a good used saw for almost a year and finally gave up and asked here for advice on “the best new saw for under $1000” after much discussion I hit CraigsList again and found a nice Unisaw with several blades, 2 dado stacks, zero clearance and dado inserts, a nice outfeed table, a 52” ShopFox fence and other accessories.

The seller even loaded it in my trailer for me.

Damage? $750, a 7 hour round trip drive to pick it up and finally $25 to have a forklift from the local lumber yard come over and unload it.

I feel like I got a pretty fair deal.

Good Luck!!

For what its worth, my “rule of thumb” for buying used machinery (most of my shop is previously used machines) is if a used machine is in tip top almost like new condition, it is value is 1/2 of the price of a new equivalent machine. From there the worth goes downward according to the wear and tear, rust, and problems.

R3, loosen the height/angle wheel locks and run the saw up/down and throughout the full tilt range. “Feel” for smooth operation, no binding. Best if you can power it up without a blade and listen for and untoward rattling.
Fence should hide smoothly end-to-end, check the corners of the fence where it rides the rail, these sometimes get dropped and dinged up corners are a sign.

If it does follow you home, do a complete “setup”, squaring everything up, before starting to play 8^)

I have a 1999 Unisaw. I am stating that up front, so you folks can write what you want about me being biased.

I think getting that saw for $1,000 is a very good deal and I would not hesitate. That saw and the included accessories will make a fine tool. You can see in the photos that it is in superb condition which means no rust to clean up, and indicates a caring owner for the life of the machine.

I personally cannot even imagine comparing that option to ordering a Grizzly saw and hoping the delivery works out as well as I would hope. If something happened to mine today, and I was in your area, I would be going to that seller and offering at least $1,200 to outbid you, R3.

Further, that air filter system is a very nice addition to any shop. Several brands are available, and they sell for nominally $400. I have one hanging on my shop ceiling, and so do many other wood workers that are sensitive or concerned in any way about dust in the air. And it also creates a very nice flow of air in the shop when I run it, so it helps with temperature control. I am very happy to have mine, so I would tell you to offer him something to get that air filter as well. If I were to do that, I would hang it on the ceiling, and free up that storage space under the saw extension wing.

I do not buy the arguments on either side of the right tilt vs left tilt discussion. You can work with either just fine, and with either there will be times the other would be better. There are many ways to work safely with a TS that lacks a riving knife. If you have one and don’t use those safety methods, you are courting trouble. I’d never be cavalier and drop my concern because i had that device.

I say go get it fast before someone else does. And regardless of how long it has been listed, someone will go buy it.

R3donkulas: ”...So I am a new member and a newer woodworker. ...”

First of all… Welcome aboard LJs!

Second… We have all been there at some point. So don’t take all this multitude of advise “too” literally. We ALL love spending other people’s money$$$. Oh, and I should mention that REGARDLESS of what ever deal you may find on used equipment…”someone else” will have always gotten a better/cheaper deal, or will claim that they were actually paid to take it away… yada yada yada… Yup, ‘shore… ;-)

That said, as for a ”beginning” woodworker, you are going to have a multitude of news skills to learn anyway. Mixing in possible repairs/adjustments on used equipment just makes things that much more of a challenge. (Insert – image of WWr with TS on back climbing Mt Everest) In other words, be prepared for some other poster to pop your balloon with a better deal or better experience, etc. Remember, all of these posters have “hindsight” experiences that you have yet to experience.

That said, of the first four pieces of floor-model woodworking equipment that I purchased, 3 of the 4 were new. The forth was used, and the “used” piece was the 4th piece of equipment I bought. Several years later, I still have them all, along with all of that added experience of using the same. I just keep remembering that all of those WWrs selling used equipment are/may be attempting to salvage their reputations as much as anything else. Sure, if the WWrs are +65yr old then maybe a good deal,... BUT if the re-seller is “younger”, then buyer be ware. Just remember that much of this equipment is “Lifetime” equipment if purchased correctly/properly. This is something to consider seriously, when building your lifetime hobby/living woodworking shop and equipment. Just MY 2-cents worth…

PS: Please ignore the all the noise that may follow this post… They really can’t help themselves.

I noticed that people who own a Unisaw tend to price it higher. Similarly homeowners hope that the house prices go up and overestimate their house worth but those who only plan to buy their first house hope that the prices would go down and underestimate the same house.

And those who has not experience ordering from Grizzly tend to bash it for no reason. FYI Grizzly table saws packaging, even the cheapest ones far exceeds that of other manufacturers. Their lowest prices hybrid saws are packaged into a tank like structure that I refuse to call a box. 4 times more expensive Sawstop while packaged adequately does not even come close to Grizzly. I received two machines from Grizzly and both times the delivery was impeccable.

I have a 52” left tilt with a kick down out-feed, an Excalibur over-arm guard-dust collector, a significant assortment of blades, including a couple dados, and I-Box, a Tennoner, and Unifence with the stock and a jig friendly fence, hold-downs, feather boards and so on. I figured I’d be VERY lucky to get $1,700.00, if I were selling it. You can take it from there.

I can assure you, you wouldn’t find mine anywhere for half the original price ($750.00). If you did, you’d be a candidate for the gloat pages.

On a final note, even if you paid a couple hundred more than it, according to anyone, is worth, it remains you don’t have a many choices, if trying to save money by buying used. So, a couple hundred more (say twelve, for example), is what it is – for the next twenty or so years. When you think of it that way, and compare it to the cost of new, even fourteen wouldn’t have been bad.

As a point of comparison, I just sold a similar right tilt unisaw that had a few minor issues but was in full working order for $800.

It had some extras like the delta sliding table and uniguard too. I probably could have gotten a little more for it, but not much more.

Hey, a lot of these comments make sense others aren’t worth the time spent typing them. Here is the deal. You got a fair deal on a table saw that should last you a lifetime. I remember paying $800.00 for my Shop Fox 3hp cabinet saw. I bought it used, two years old. i have been using it for the last 14 years, happy. I never once thought of the price I paid for it because it runs like a champ every time I start it up, and always has. Like other posters have said, some schmuck will come along telling you how they got a better deal. Doesn’t matter. If you shopped patiently, and educated yourself, then sit back and just enjoy your new saw.

Good luck to you and your new toy! Welcome to Lumberjocks!

IMO, a three phase machine is preferable to a single phase one… and since most people are afraid of three phase, they are typically much cheaper as well. But for what you got, I’m sure you will be more than happy with it. Since it has the over-arm guard, check to see if it has the disappearing splitter as well… they typically came with the overarm uniguard.

Carlos, you are apparently in So Cal. The $500 saw was in Nevada. The original post was about a saw in Rochester NY. Are you having a good laugh to tell us those three markets are at all related, similar, equivalent? Oh well, that at least makes for some good humor in the thread.

Of course they are very similar, maybe saws pop up at different frequency but they have cimparable prices. Rught now I see 4 saws at my city fir close to $500: https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/tls/d/10-delta-unisaw/6281581622.html

https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/tls/d/rockwell-10-inch-unisaw-table/6274038138.html
The other two are 800 and 900. From my talking to them People are dumping other saws in favor of Sawstop once a close call or minor injury occurs.
Not because it is better or worse but because it is difficult for them to go over the shock.

Much like houses, location does have quite a bit to do with price. I can’t remember exactly when I bought my unisaw, but I think it was 2002, maybe 2003. But it has served me well, and is the one piece of equipment in my shop that I wouldn’t consider selling even with all the new features on the saws today. I think the OP will be happy with his purchase.

This is great…. I figured it was hog wash as I have seen some 500 dollar ones that are 3 phase and look like a good boat anchor. I am buying this one for 1000.00 on Friday and I am not second guessing it at all

That is the way it should be, do not second guess….just enjoy. There will always be those who “got a better deal”. Who the hell cares? You came out good with this one.

I’ve been through this agony many times before. You wince at the price but make the purchase anyway. After a while you forget the cost and enjoy a good machine or tool. Hell, its only money. You can get some more! : )

Thanks again everyone just got the saw home and hooked up. Ended up paying 950.00 and he gave me an older JET 4 in jointer for free. I am very happy with this saw as it was well taken care of

You can do a lot with a 4” inch jointer, and that’s supposed to be a good one. Watch some youtube videos about how to utilize a 4-inch jointer to accomplish “larger” tasks.

(I have a 6”, but the techniques are out there for relatively easy workarounds for wider stock. If you also add a planer some day, then it gets even more capable and versatile.)
