Hello all, I’m selling my Powermatic PM72. It’s a great machine but I’m scaling down some of the size of my tools and this one is a pretty big machine. Larger than the PM66 younger brother.

Everything works great, cones with a phase converter, Shark Gaurd, Wixey digital gauge, mobile base, etc. should do well for someone, I know it’s been awesome on the AZ local hardwoods for me.

I’m looking to get $1000 out of it and with more than $500 in the Wixey, phase converter, and shark Gaurd. I think that’s a great deal for someone.

I would be willing. Not sure what to do with the really long rails. Would I need to take those off or could they just hang off the saw on the pallet?

Dave it’s not more than 48” front to back is it? How long overall and what’s the weight spec on it?
I’d suggest a long skid with a plywood bottom, with support under the extension table in case it gets picked up from that end. Definitely nothing hanging over a skid though that’s asking for damage.

LOL,
If Holiday season had not zapped all my extra cash, and didn’t already have cabinet and contractor saw sucking space from my shop; I would have called about that saw when CL ad first appeared.
Have no clue why, but has always coveted owning a PM 72 in my home shop. Those massive heavy beast can handle tremendous amounts of wood. Sorry I can’t help you relocate it. :(
Best Luck.

Thanks. Honestly I’m surprised I still have it. It might not be pretty but it’s a pretty awesome machine with everything someone would need to have it running in their shop.

I don’t think the price is high at this point??

Your price is fair, IMHO. Problem is finding/waiting for the right buyer, especially if you aren’t set up to ship nationwide. I’d love to have a big beast like that—unfortunately, I’m pretty sure the table on the saw has more square footage than my shop. (One of the reasons I build nice, small projects)

It’s definitely a fair price. Just not a huge market for saws that beefy. With it being ready to roll on single phase 230 though, it’s bound to sell before long. There might be something to the thing with folks being strapped for cash after the holidays too.

No Grant. That mill is sweet. You done good. The saw will sell eventually. I’m not going any lower on the price so it will stay as long as it needs to until it finds a home. Not a huge deal.

I plugged in some major metro destinations just to give an idea -
if you palletized it I could get it from the dock in Phoenix to Atlanta, Minneapolis, Houston or Seattle business location or terminal pickup) for $350-450
Los Angeles about $200
Florida will be about 450-500, NY & other Northeastern states about $550

Kenny I’ll make you a special deal, $400 to the Roanoke terminal
