Topic tags/keywords: sawstop pcs

I am in the market for a Sawstop PCS 1.75 or 3 hp saw. I don’t need the fence, rails, extension table, blade, or miter gauge. All I need is the (properly working) saw, cast iron wing, brake cartridge, blade wrenches, allen key, and the plastic spacer gauge.

for me, the cost difference is fairly minor when considering the HP improvement. So I’ll be going with a 3hp PCS hopefully next year. The sliding table attachment really has caught my eye, but most likely would never be used to it’s potential in my shop.

Good luck with your decision.

You may want to post a location
Also, I understand that you may not need some of the fence components or accessories but be prepared to buy them- finding one of these used at a good price can be hard enough but finding one that is missing pieces and/or from a seller who is willing to part out out the saw will be nearly impossible

Good luck though

Garland, TX. FYI the reason I don’t need the fence is because I have an Incra TS-LS and all the accessories with which it comes, i.e,, router table insert, legs, etc. I also need a mobile base.
