Hey All,

The quest continues for a C’List used saw and there’s another that seemed worth a closer look but there are a few gaps in the specifics.

The seller is in the midst of moving and has not been able to get to the location where the saw for sale is located to provide me with the info I’ve been trying to get. It’s obviously a C’Man saw with an aftermarket fence. Not sure which saw or which fence. The fence is a Biesemeyer style but I’m not familiar enough with them to know for sure and thus haven’t been able to fairly approximate the value of the package.

I’ve posted the photo from the listing and would appreciate any best guesses out there as to what the heck it is I’m looking at and if $150 is a fair price.

Thanks for the assist.

There isn’t much difference between model numbers on those c-man contractor saws. Just make sure that it’s not a ‘flex’ drive model, which is problematic. That is a Biesemeyer fence judging from the sticker, or a very close clone. Fence and motor are worth more than $150 alone, and they would be throwing in the saw for free.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I’m also surprised that it’s been listed for 23 days… For that price, it should have sold long ago.

Thanks for the input Brad. I’ve learned enough here on LJ to know that I don’t want a Flex Drive C’Man saw. Hard to tell from the photo. I’m assuming that it’s got a 113.xxx serial and I’m assuming that would be a good thing.

I’m trying to decide if the saw as pictured would be a better choice than another that is also available in my area.

Pictured below, it’s a Ridgid TS2424 that looks to be in decent condition. One caveat, its motor was replaced last year with a 1.0 h.p. model and is being offered for $225. Now this is, believe it or not, a different saw than I posted last week which was also a TS2424 with a 1.0 h.p. motor replacement. The new motor on this machine is a Dayton 4K129 which, I’m pretty sure, is designed for woodworking/industrial use.

What is your opinion?
