it would have to be in showroom condition at that price. 3 hours away is about 150 miles that’s over $100 in fuel. I went 800 on mine, but it is a Powermatic 66 with a new 3HP baldor motor, 54” fence and it has a full cast top. there is no wood in the saw Iron from left to right. I would hold out unless he is willing to go to 350-400 because you have to figure mileage into the final price. I would try to squeeze on him over the phone because if you drive 150 miles to look at it then he thinks he has you. if you are going to give up the space then go for a cabinet saw with a 3HP or better. remember a quality cabinet saw will be the last one you ever need to buy. also don’t be scared of 3phz. I have seen 5HP uni-saws go for 400 cause they were 3phz. in my research I have found you can buy a panel to make your own rotary converter for 200+ the cost of the used idler motor. my 3phz converter cost me 200+50 for the motor and it is a 7.5 hp that setup will run any machine up to 5HP so now I can run all kinds of 3phz machines from it. it my be a little more upfront to go 3phz but you can get heavier machines down the road for a lot less.

happy hunting and be patient I searched over a year for my planer
