With limited space, I began looking at benchtop units, but keep hearing that I won’t be able to get the accuracy I need with these. Do you all agree with that? My budget is keeping me from purchasing a new contractor or cabinet saw, so I’ve been looking at used saws. Does this seem like the right way to go? I can work it into the shop if I can get a mobile base set-up.
I am going to look at a fully reconditioned Rockwell 34-325 saw today. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge with these saws?? I can’t find too much info on line. Motor is new Universal Type Motor (2.5 HP), fence system is upgraded (Craftsman Align-a-rip), cast iron top was reconditioned and the saw is on a self leveling mobile base. Saw is said to be reconditioned to “as-new” condition. They are asking $275 for the saw. Does this seem reasonable???
Either way, any advice you guys/gals can offer when I’m looking for a reasonably inexpensive “accurate” saw, if that’s not an oxymoron, is much appreciated!
