Topic tags/keywords: question tip tablesaw

My friend wants to get rid of his grandpa’s old table saw and was asking for some advice on value. He currently has it listed on Facebook for $50. Thoughts?

The motor is worth that much but it is an old design that barely qualifies as a contractors saw. It is still useful and I wish you luck in selling it. In some respects it is very desirable because they just do not make them like they used to but because it is not a table saw, it still is not worth too much.

They should not have any problem selling it for $50. It looks complete, which in itself is pretty rare, with the original fence, miter gauge and cast iron extension wings. Anyone looking for a good restoration candidate would be all over it.


PS: It would probably sell quicker if listed on CL

If I lived closer I would buy it for $50.
The extensions alone are worth that. Motor, fence and miter guage.
Like Brad says: Anyone who restore old tools will buy it.

If those extension wings are full depth (27”), they will sell for at least $40 each + shipping on ebay.

Nice clean saw, I bet it hardly has any use. I would love that saw for $50, set it up in the corner as a single tasker.
