Normally, I’d say it’s worth $100-$200… but the Unifence is a nice score, as is the mobile base and extension table(s), so around $300 would be my top end as well.

Cheers,
Brad

$900 when it was new, circa 2000. $450 now to anyone who knows what they are looking at.

American made, true 1.5hp, unifence, cast iron wing, machined pulley, 30” rip, mobile base, outfeed. Nice saw.

That’s good to hear Rick. I’m winning with 30 min left. Current bid $220. If I get it, I’ll have to decide if I like my grizzly better or not.

That saw also has one of those magical motors that actually increase horsepower when run on 240v… It’s 1.5hp on 120, and 2hp on 240. $220 would be a pretty good price if it holds.

Brad

With the cast iron wings, mobile base, extension table, Unifence, and a WWII, I’d think it’d be worth in the $400-$450 range. It’s in nice shape and appears to be complete.

Good Scott, because I just bought it for $220 plus fees. Basically I paid 250. Guess I’m gonna have to remove outfeed, and the extension wing to transport on a trailer. Do you think it may be better to have than the G0575 that I have with shop fox alums classic?

I like my shop fox, but I could see liking the unifence better.

Put it this way, I’ve owned the same saw for over 15 years and if it blew up tomorrow if buy another just like it. I’d rather have a Unisaw but it’s not feasible for me.
