A Rockwell of that era was/is a great machine. Pricing such a machine is tough. Accessories such as a fence or gooseneck lamp make the machine more attractive. But I’ll assume those are not included since they are not pictured (as far as I can tell). However, that saw looks to be in pretty nice shape. Just make sure the motor doesn’t look damaged and/or look like a cheap/ill-fitting replacement. Also make sure the casting is not cracked.
1- $200-300. You can get a brand new Porter Cable BS for $350-400. FYI.
2- $150-200
3- Wouldn’t bother.
