It’s the Powermatic PM64”S”. It’s essentially a downgraded PM64”A”...has a the old Jet Microglide fence instead of the Accurence…. that wasn’t much of a hit on the Jet Supersaw, and it has steel wings… may have a smaller motor too, but I’m not certain. The basic guts of both are pretty typical older style Taiwanese contractor saws with an outboard motor, connecting rod arbor carriage, and no riving knife…..very similar to the Woodtek, Griz G0444, Bridgewood, and others, but sports a Powermatic logo. IMO, the PM64a is just about worth $450 used in nice shape…..the PM64s is not. It’s a “Powermatic” only by nameplate association, not construction or features, so whatever one of those other similar saws would be worth with steel wings and middle of the road fence, is about what the PM64s is worth IMHO…maybe $300-$350.
