Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw

I would really like to do a TS upgrade. I have a Left Tilt Unisaw, 3HP Single phase with the Biesmeyer fence and 52 inch rail system. It has a router lift in it, but I plan to keep the Jointech Smartlift.

It’s now 6 years old. But I don’t know what a realistic/reasonable price would be.

I want to go to a sawstop, but my wife would prefer that this be ‘already sold’ and have a open spot in the shop before making a big tool purchase.

What should it sell for? The “New” Unisaw is 3 grand but that has a lot of upgrades compared to mine, like a riving knife and front mount tilt controls etc.

At the same time, it can’t be only worth 600 bucks.

Every area is a little different, and condition, extras, and age are factors, but I’d think roughly $900-$1100 for that rig would enticing around here….maybe a little more if it retains a router table. I’d brush off the sawdust and take some good detailed pics, and put lots of info in the listing….I’m always amazed at how poorly some people market their items.

Good luck!

Here you would get $1500.00 for it no problem…

I agree with knotscott, poor advertising = poor price.
