Any ideas on what I can reasonably expect to get for this saw? Everything works and I also have 18 packs of 6 inch blades, there are 5 blades in each pack. Extremely heavy. Looking to sell it on CL, Ebay and if anyone lives close enough that wants it from Lumberjocks then that’s great as well. Thanks for your input.

I would list it for $200 and hope for the best… I doubt you would get that though, unless you get lucky and have a vintage c-man collector nearby.

It will depend on finding the right buyer. I guess I think more than $100 is a pipe dream.

I disagree. The more interesting pedestal base that puts it after 1955, the power panel, the engine turned trim and original motor all in great shape…I’d ask $250 and see what happens.

I’ll give you a dollar-two-eighty for it. You WILL deliver it to JawJa, right? :-)

For what it’s worth, there were 3 listed near me in New Jersey over the course of the last few months. None had the original pedestal. One listed for 75 with 2 motors, one went for 100, can’t remember the listing details, and one still listed is going for 375.
