Jerry why do you have to have a new saw @ $500?

A lot of good used saws such as the Craftsman 133. Emerson saws were excellent and still have a lot of life left to them.
They can be had for $150 or less and are as accurate as a person new to wood working could ask.
I’ve been working with wood for a few years and have been considering a second saw that belongs to my boss. It is a Craftsman 113. and he’s only asking $150 for it. It has the equivalent of of one set of cabinets done on it and still has the original factory blade. (Yeah, he’s a metal worker, not a wood worker). It’s been parked in the shop under cover for 20 years but with a little clean up and a new blade would be a beautiful saw for a newbie.

edit (Jerry edited his post to take out the $500 reference).
