No doubt about it that’s a Delta table saw :)

Delta hybrid… probably something like a 36-714 (they were sold under a few different catalog numbers IIRC).

Also hard to evaluate the “good buy” aspect of it without knowing the price.

$200 would be OK given that whomever is selling it probably takes as good of care of the saw as the the effort they put forth in cleaning it for pictures they’re trying to sell it with.

I know a fellow that paid $500 for the one he bought a while back, had to help him move it to his place.

More to the point…how does it run?

After you buy that rig and get it home, let us know if you figure out what it might be. ;-D

What I would consider a good price might not be the same as what you would! It is a step up from a contractor saw, and a step down from a Unisaw. Has the advantage over a contractor saw with the enclosed motor and cast iron wings for more mass, but isn’t quite as robust or powerful as a Uni. I would consider $50 a good price… but $200 a more reasonable one :)

I think $200 is very reasonable, providing it is operational without major issues.

The question is would you wait for a 3hp saw and pay a bit more?

If it’s in good shape mechanically, the cosmetics may help you get the price down. I think it is still worth $400 -$500. More power to you if you get it for $200. I bought a delta contractor saw last month just to resell. I paid $260 for it and sold it for $500, but that was with a shop fox rolling base and base extension.

Just opened the link. Presumably this is already in your shop.

If I go look at it is there anything in particular I should look for?
