Topic tags/keywords: question

I am looking at a Powermatic 64A table saw on craigslist, and was wondering if anyone had any information on this saw. It is brand new still in the box asking $760. Thank you

No personal experience here with that saw but I did find this; . This thread is quite old but as the saw your looking at is NIB it might be relevant.

The PM64A was among the best of the Taiwanese contractor saws from the early 2000s, and was very similar to other saws from the same plant such as the GI 50-185, Grizzly, Jet. They featured outboard belt drive motors and a traditional splitters. $760 without the fence is a show stopper IMO….too high for what it is and what you get.

Be careful buying NIB old machines.

Way, way too high for what is ultimately just a contractor saw, no matter what color it is.

Have your say...
