”buy a used 3HP Unisaw for $150-250,”

”in that price range, wouldn’t that be a saw that’s a refurbish/restore project first? i haven’t seen a lot of ready to use older unisaw’s for prices like that in my area.”

Yep. There are several of those big iron machines around my area but they aren’t lettinng them go for less than 500. One massive Rockwell is asking 650.

That thing is a monster but overkill for both my small shop,my current needs,etc. Besides running 220, I would would need a posse to move that thing and get it situated.

I need a working saw ASAP that won’t break the bank and can do most everything I throw at it. It won’t be the last I buy likely either but don’t have the time for restoring a saw at the moment.

I have really thought this over and the biggest issue for me is room and not having 220. I will probably end up removing the 64 inch rails or modifying them and using sleds if I end up with this Ridgid.From that perspective I was leaning toward the Grizzly 1023 but again,its going to be awhile before I can get 220 .

Anyway, will be going tomorrow to look at the saw. Appreciate all the feedback. And thanks alot for all the suggestions.
