I’m always on the look-out for a new cabinet saw. I’ve been using a ridgid TS3612 for years now that I bought off CL for $300 and it’s really been great. I’ve tuned the heck out of it and I believe it is performing at a very high level, above which it was probably intended. But….. I’ve never been happy with the dust collection since it has that outboard motor and the ducting that came with the base doesn’t quite fit. It’s like it was made for a slightly different model.
Anyway, this CL add came up and I am wondering about his price cause it seems very high when I research similar saws:
I talked to him and he said he paid almost $2400 for the set-up. Best I could find is that combo might be worth about $600. The new craftsman version of that saw is $1k and a few more hundred for the fence maybe, but that’s new.
Any thoughts? Is this guy just without a clue or am I missing something?
