400 is a good price for a working unisaw. If that fence and extension table comes with it then its even better. Unisaws are solid machines and the basic design hasn’t changed since they started making them back in the late 30’s (until a couple of years ago that is).

Things to look for, make sure you can support the motor that is in the saw. If it needs 220volt then you need 220 as well. If it is a 3phase machine then you need 3phase etc.

Take off the motor cover and look at the trunions, make sure they have all their teeth and don’t have any cracks. That model is a newer one so I wouldn’t expect any problems, but it is still better to to be safe then sorry. If you decide to buy it consider taking the motor out of the saw when you transport it. To do that you will probably need a set of punches (at least the 1950’s model did. don’t know if they changed the motor mounting design).

Good luck!
