Well I missed out on the 10” jet and I return for some more wisdom from those with much more knowledge than me.

There is a dayton table saw 4kxd1 on Craigslist for $325. I really haven’t been able to find our that much about this saw.

Opinions?

AFAIK, Dayton is now owned and distributed by Graingers – and I have seen people trying to get parts and support from them with mixed success. The “Made in China” label also jumped out at me :)

It’s probably worth that price to someone, but I wouldn’t pay that much for an off brand imported Asian saw with limited support when there are plenty of much more desirable saws out there, like this Unisaw in your area – asking $475 – no pictures though. Or this one with an asking price of $575. You could probably get both of those prices down a bit more. If those don’t look appealing, there will be dozens more along shortly if you are patient!

Cheers,
Brad

Brad,

Thanks for the input. The brand definitely has me a little worried just because I don’t recgonize it. I should of been more clear on my post that I am looking for something that can be moved around so those big cabinet style saws don’t seem to be an option.

AFAIK, the Dayton is pretty much the same saw as the Craftsman 21833 and Ridgid R4512, which I thought were made by Dayton.

This Delta has some quite a bit of rust for a newish saw, but it looks like a 36-725….with some elbow grease, that rust should come off. It’s worth a look to get a better idea of how deep the rust goes, and what kind of shape the saw is in. Riving knife, decent fence. $200

Here’s another 36-725 for $400 – http://columbus.craigslist.org/tls/5679202414.html

If you can swing that Unisaw for $575, go for it!

With a mobile base, they are just as movable as a hybrid saw like the one you were looking at – and generally less footprint than a contractor saw with its motor hanging out back. The only time they may get a bit out of hand is when you install a fence with long rails and extension table. But you know your requirements better than anyone else.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I saw a couple of nice C-man contractor saws in your local CL in the $200 range you might want to consider.
