At first glance it looks like a cabinet saw, but for the lack of a bulge for the motor on the left side of the cabinet (it does appear to be left tilt). So I assume it’s a contractor saw, though there’s no sign of a motor hanging off the back. And with that (mere speculation), I’ve exhausted all possibilities regarding what I can say about it.

Based on appearance only, that saw might sale for $200 in NC, but that’s a swag with no other info available.

Motor should be hanging off the back… like this:

More info on Duro can be found here.

I was unaware of Duro making a table saws or anything other than bandsaws.. I have a bandsaw that I purchased in ‘78, already 20 years old, and it has served me well throughout the years. The table saw might be good, but it’s not industrial quality.

Brad, even though your old fashioned in wood turning by not using a chuck, you know how to navigate a computer to come up with useful links for almost any subject… Thanks…........ Jerry (in Tucson)

Would it be worth picking up for a 100?

If it runs and the trunnions are not cracked, I would say, yes.

Have your say...
