Fellow LumberJocks,
I am pleased to tell you that tonight I scored, BIG TIME!

I found a Delta Unisaw, 5HP model, with a 52” Biesmeyer fence system for… WAIT FOR IT, WAAAAAIIITTT FOR IT….

$300!

Yes, it’s true…
THE AD FOR THE SAW is gone, but I’ve added pictures below…

This weekend I will be making room for the beast and cleaning it up – it’s certainly not new, but the old fella who was selling it was moving where he could not keep it any more, so he was just dumping it.

So, like the subject says….

WINNING!!

Happiness is SAWDUST!

Great score! I’m glad it wasn’t listed in my area… I would have bought it in a second.

A bit ugly, but runs like a champ, whisper quiet. Right side extension table needs rebuild, but that’s an easy thing to do this Saturday. A nice cleanup and repaint it will look gorgeous. But, for now, I just need the extension table done so I can start using it! I ran it before I took it, and man was it sweet…

Here’s the pix from the Craig’s List ad before it was taken down…

It will be a bit of a challenge to squeeze it into my small shop, but I have an idea of how it will fit nicely and allow maximum space around it without cutting the shop into two sections…

Once I get it in place, I will post pictures…

Ciao!
BE SAFE

a little spit and polish and the ugly goes away and the deal just gets better.
