That you posted two threads on this saw question will lead to a little confusion, but …

Like was written in the other thread, the data for this very one is needed to even begin to guess what it might be worth. Definitely need to determine the horsepower of this one.

In the meantime, there is a lengthy 9 year old review of this saw or a similar one anyway, right on this site. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/539
This review on Fine Woodworking might be the same saw. http://www.finewoodworking.com/2005/06/01/cabinet-saw-or35504-review
And there might be others, but i did not keep looking.

I doubt that Sears offered many different models of that cabinet saw, so with no other info, I would guess these to all be the same. But that might be wrong.

Take a good look under the hood. If I remember correctly these saws have equivalent internal construction to a contractor saw instead of the typical cast iron chassis of a cabinet saw, and if there’s that much rust on the table there’s likely just as much on the inside, I don’t remember any of it being weatherized.

Edit: I know that doesn’t exactly tell you what it’s worth, I wouldn’t pay any more than $250 for it and only if the fence is still dead-on, I was pointing out issues that will likely be deal breakers if you’re looking for a decent saw that’s going to last a while, and hopefully hasn’t already been worn out.

The seller had a cabinet business, so i would think it has been used a lot. she does look road hard.
