I bought this TS from Woodcraft one year ago next month and it is an awesome TS. So why am I seeking to sell it? I have had a change of heart and want to go to a SawStop. The price to buy this through Woodcraft today is the same as one year ago, $3099. There is also a $200 excess weight fee so the total this would cost you is $3300. I will sell it to an interested LJ for $2500 for a savings of $800. But there is more. My eyes were bigger than my stomach when I bought this. The 50” fence rails were too big for my shop. I bought the 30”rails via a Craiglslist posting and built the necessary side table to match. I will throw in the 30” rails and table. Want more for your dollars? I also built a fold-down outfeed table for the saw. (See my post on it.) It is currently attached and in use. I will leave the outfeed table attached. So, any LJ out there that will give this wonderful tool a good home? Of course, you would have to pick up the saw so it’s important for you to know I live in RI.

Lenny I really hope you find a good home for that saw. Like Napaman said, I know how much effort you put into that purchase. Wow, she is a thing of beauty.

Just bought the sawstop 2 weeks ago. I wanted the bigger table too until I saw it in a Woodcraft store. So I went with a 36”. Smart move. Good luck selling it.

Sure would be nice if Saw Stop could come up with a kit to fit some of the more popular cabinet saws on the market like the PM2000

Lenny Lenny Lenny! This is not something you can just give away to the first guy with some cash. Its a Powermatic! You have to first review all the people who apply to own it. Investigate their shop. Then review all applicants and make sure you adopt it out to the BEST home. With great power(Matic), comes great responsibility man!

Todd, what was I thinking? Of course, you are right and I will surely tighten the purchase process. Too funny Todd. As a kid Spiderman was my favorite comic book so I appreciate the play on words and your sense of humor.

Lenny, that Powermatic is the same as my saw and I love it. However, I’m 60 years old and still have all of my fingers and I debated long and hard over the Powermatic and the Sawstop. My pocketbook won the argument – I may regret it. At the time I purchased my saw the Sawstop was almost another thousand bucks. BTW, I just noticed that the Sawstop people have one that is now about the same price as the Powermatic. That will probably save a lot of fingers. All of you LJ’s be careful with your saws. I see way too many woodworkers come into our moulding business that have lost a finger or two. Just a little moment of careless or lack of concentration is all it takes. Good luck at selling your saw.
