You throw away about 40% of the value by buying new. I seldom
buy new machinery for this reason. Changing safety standards are
causing a flood of older saws onto the used market, which makes
a glut and drops prices for you. Buy new if you want to, but you
have plenty of good options in the secondhand market. If you’ve
got $1500 I’d look for a used Scmi/Mini-max slider or similar.
