So I’ve got two. I don’t need two.
Which one would be better to keep around, or which would have the greatest return on investment?

Which one is in best condition? Most accurate?

Hook them up. Use them and see which is the better of the two. Condition, condition, condition. Too many people spend time debating when what matters is how does it cut wood.

Don’t know your choice as you are the one using it.

The 2 saws aren’t really that far apart, with only the slightest of edges given to the 7749 (my opinion). I would consider what was said above about which on seems to be in ht e best shape. If you choose the 7749 and think you need that anti kickback, just move it (or the whole blade guard) from one saw to the other…same goes for any other parts that might be interchangeable.

I had 2 Delta 12” turret radial arm saws. I bought the second because it was cheap around $75. I eventually removed anything that was missing I could and resold it for $75. I would like to have kept both bit space is limited.

Pick the one you like amd sell the other..
