Well there I was, on the job, and I notice this Cabinet saw sitting in the doorway of this business, right next to the footpath. Had a bit of rust on the cast iron table but otherwise looked alright. So I grabbed a business card and rang them back a few days later. The reason for calling back is that they may have been influenced by my work gear, as I am a Government Inspector.
So I ring up, “hi I saw the cabinet saw in the doorway and was wondering what is happening with it”.
“Yeah, we want to get rid of it”.
“How much”?
”$250”.
“Done. Oh does it go”.
“Yeah, its not very old”.
“DONE”.

Picked it up two days later. I think I did pretty well and this is going to improve the WW out of sight.

It is missing nothing, except for the pipe that connects the guard to the extraction.

This exact saw sells new for about $1200. Woo hoo
Don’t ask, and you will never receive.
