What happened to this saw . I can’t find one anywhere. A cabinet tablesaw shouldn’t cost over 1000. To make anymore. And I shouldn’t have to spend over 1000 on one. It doesn’t have to be as nice as a jet or powermatic or saw stop. Who really wants to spend 4000. On a cabinet tablesaw. Put me in touch with central machinery I want to have a chat . Anyone remember when a grizzly started out at just under 1000. Not anymore. Come on peaple. Someone help us poor woodworker out .please!

HaHa
You are correct.

Can buy cabinet saw for $300——In China from same place many others use,
BUT only if you buy 30 of them at one time.

Then you have to pay $400-500 each for crating, packing, export frieght to ship terminal, shipping, import duties, import freight to you location. Then there is local warehousing costs, loan interest used to pay for everything till they are sold, costs to market/advertise saws for sale, people to take/process orders for saws, shipping clerks to process shipments and send the saws to the final customer. Don’t forget the hidden cost when a couple of saws have quality issues, and you need to send replacement parts for free under warranty to keep customers happy.

Yes, that is why a decent cabinet saw in USA costs $1200-$1800.

Guess you can move to China if you to avoid the extra costs? Oh but wait.
Chinese income is ~20% of US income, so you only have 20% of current income to buy a new saw, and it still cost equivalent value as here in USA.

Buy a used saw. An old Unisaw will be miles better than anything Central Machinery made.
