Hi everyone, LOOOOOOOONG time lurker/enjoyer, first post.

I want to “upgrade” my table saw. I currently have a RIDGID R4512 with a Vega PRO 50 installed.
I WAS looking into a Powermatic 64B…......but After seeing the new Laguna Fusion F2 and the Harvey Ambassador C300-30, i mean the Powermatic isnt even being considered anymore. I like the Euro style adjustable fence on the others, as well as the “price for what you get”.

My question is….....I want to offload my table saw, of course, and replace it with one of the 2 mentioned above. So, what should i be asking for it…..the saw is about 7 years old, still in perfect working condition, but of course used…some light rust/discoloration on the top, but still perfect. Is $700 too much to ask? $800? I do not know, hence why i am asking everyone here!

Thanks in advance for any replies!

How fast do you want to sell it?

Start with 60% of retail.

Used market starts at 50% of retail, you could add a bit for the fence, I think $600 is tops for that saw. It somewhat depends on your location and what other comparable saws are selling for in your area.

Start with 60 or 70% of retail and be prepared to go to 50% if that is what it takes. But the way delivery dates have trended I wouldn’t sell until the new saw is in place.

A very good point, many tools are back ordered at the moment.

Most guys getting into woodworking won’t even know about the fence upgrade they just want a deal. I had that saw and sold it for 50% of the cost because every one who called me was willing to give me 25% of the cost. At that point I just wanted to move it because I already had my new saw. That’s my experience with Craigslist.

Thanks for the advice everyone!

I think that I will try for 60%...which at current prices would be $650. I would be happy with that.

Anyone near Pittsburgh and want a $650 table saw? LOL

Have your say...
