How much do you think this saw is worth?

I personally wouldn’t pay that.

While it’s probably a great saw, it’s in the sawstop area price wise. If that saw has any benefits over the SS, they would be too small to out way the technology.

I am not trying to turn this into a SS debate, but they changed the dynamics a bit because they have something nobody else does.

Even in CDN $, $3800 seems like a lot of coin!

Used prices are VERY dependent on location so I wouldn’t normally be much help sitting up in CT. However, this seems way overpriced to me. So much so that I wouldn’t even waste my time with him/her – if they are starting there they are delusional and will be too difficult to deal with until the thing sits out there for a month or more…. probably even then

Thanks,
I realize the price is high, that’s why I was asking how much anybody thinks it’s worth.

Yeah, I saw that while I was looking around at them.
Thanks

I just went back to his ad, he dropped the price to 3,800.00
Now it’s worth it…. :>)

Well I was going to wait a few before implying that this would be better than a SawStop, but, what the hell…..

This is a descent saw though. I wouldn’t mind having it, but to me I was thinking more about 2500.00 tops.

IDK if it is NOS, and never used. Not worth more than 50% of retail if sold in USA.
Maybe worth 60-70% if it was sold in Canada, and parts outlet was readily available.

Besides, I can get a barely used < 10 year old PM2000 or new Delta Unisaw with riving knife used for ~$2000-$2200. They show up on CL all the time, and sit there as they are too expensive.

Not sorry, I am cheap and #IAMAKLUTZ.

It would really have to be NOS for me to go $2500 on it. Otherwise I’d be following Kultz’s 60-70% of retail which puts it in the 1800-2000 range.

Or enough Unisaws to have a different one for each day of the week.

Presuming this is a used saw. If so, the price suggests my Unisaw is worth a couple grand plus. Especially if I throw in the over arm guard-dust collection, the Merlin splitter, the kick down out-feed, the various blades, including a dado, the Incra box joint jig, the tenon jig, the. . . .

A grand, or less, would seem closer to realistic, unless you were in Africa.

They’d be lucky to get 1500 here in CT (presuming used)
Like I said though, I wouldn’t waste my time trying to convince them

For that price you could could get the biggest sawstop professional and have $600 left over for some accessories.

I think $1,500 is a lot to pay for that saw, even if in like new condition. That’s what I think it’s worth.
