A month ago, I posted about buying a Delta Hybrid saw on CL. I ended up selling that saw for a small profit about 2 hours after posting it on CL. I had done a lot of work to the Delta Hybrid cleaning it up, buffing out the table top, lubricating moving parts, etc…
I was able to take the small profits and purchase a portable Ridgid TS on CL for 180. I feel it was an excellent deal as the saw is in excellent/like new shape. The seller rarely ever used it. A great upgrade over our other jobsite saw. I had been getting by with a job site saw that was simply an oversized circular saw flipped upside down with “Crapsman 2.5 hp” stamped on the front.
OK guys, before anyone points this out I do realize I am accepting inferior power by going with the Ridgid “full size” portable TS because after all, I think Ridgid manufacturer has claimed 1.5 hp on the portable TS while Crapsman has claimed 2.5 hp on my upside down circular saw. I don’t know, maybe by simply stamping “2.5 hp” into the body of the crapsman, that somehow lifts the saws ego thereby giving it “super TS power”. LOL :)
