Pawn shops and craigslist can be great places for quality used tools at affordable prices. I have bought many tools, electronics, and even a couch from craigslist. All have serviced me well, and most still are. I recently purchased a Craftsman plunge router still in the box from craigslist for $60. It had never been opened…until I got my grubby hands on it. I was about to buy the same router from Sears, but decided to see if there had been any new tool posts before I did. Check these places out before you purchase a lower quality saw and are not satisfied with what you get. There are all sorts of gems out there, but be on the lookout for the turds as well. My Makita LS1013 came from a pawn shop. I paid $220 for it 4 years ago. Retail was almost $500. I didnt care about having a slider then, but couldnt resist the deal. Ill bet you can find a great saw in your budget, and one you will get many years of good service out of, if you look around for a used one.
