I am selling 2 saws that belonged to my late husband.
I just read that the old delta radial arm saws are worth more than I would have thought.

I will try to attach 2 photos but I am using a new computer (mac) and simple things are no longer simple..

The table saw is a dewalt 36-650- maybe 2001 some rust
the radial arm saw is OLD.. 438-02-314-2067.

I would really appreciate knowing what to ask..
(Not what you would love to find it for LOL)

Kelly, the RAS is wort hat least 500US The tablesaw a little less. I’ll give ya 20 for ‘em both, and come pick ‘em up! I kid. Stand firm on the RAS, negotiate on the tablesaw.

http://Craigslist.com would be a good place to list them. I agree that the Radial Arm Saw is nice. I’m not sure if you would get $500 or not. I would think $200/$250 for the Delta table saw.

Thank you so much..I thought the radial arm saw was just worth 100 because it was old.
I am trying to fix up the house to sell and more $ from stuff like this will help.
You guys are the best !!!!
I just listed the Radial Arm Saw on Craigslist for 500. Keep you posted.
By the way I found a new site called SearchTempest that allows you to search
any area (like the whole state)for things on craigslist..Very helpful when pricing things to.

That looks like the 12” radial arm saw from Delta, which is a
really robust machine for professional use.

Getting $500 for it may take awhile due to the soft market
for radial arm saws and machinery in general, but if you are patient
you may get $500 for it.

In my neck of the woods most radial arm saws seem to go for around 100- 150 as for the table saw about 200- 300. Of course this is in my neck of the woods, I don’t know about your local. Good luck hope you get what your asking.

I’m thinking $300 for the RAS (slow sell) and $200 for the contractor saw in my area. The RAS seems to be enjoying a rebirth of sorts; you might luck out and get a little more for it. You’d wait forever in my area for $500 but that doesn’t make it any less desirable.

I am not in a hurry so I will just leave the RAS at 500 and Table saw at 300 for awhile to see.. I can lower them later if I need to.

You guys are calling the other saw a Contractor Saw…does that mean it is a Contractor Table Saw ?

I put that in my ad but can change it.

Contractor is a style of table saw. I would not think it would make a difference in the ad one way or another.

I do want the basic tools & workbench to learn to do basic things but I thought I probably wont be using a RAS..

Surprised my husband when the kids were babies & built a bookcase while he was at work to keep toys on & my toddlers from the treadmill while I was using it.

PS..I have a step daughter in Truckee , Ca

I bought a RAS out of novelty and I’ve never really taken it through its paces. It works great for reducing long boards to fit in my small shop but I mostly bought it because everyone else was doing it (Yes, Mom, like jumping off a cliff). There’s a small niche that will be very excited about that RAS. You may just get $500 quickly.

I like Wayne’s dog, too;)

Truckee is about an hour and a half from here. They got lots of snow up there this winter. Still seeing flood and cold water warnings from the run-off.

These are great forums for ideas with lots of nice people around. Also, quite a few women woodworkers on the site if your looking to learn more.

Sorry for your loss!

As long as you’ve got time, you’re fine.

For the RAS, $450 would indicate that you’re willing to deal, and ready to sell. I’m going to disagree over the value of your Delta TS, though you might get 3biills. Be sure to point out the base, too. That’s a selling feature. Pour some vinegar on the metal, let it set for an hour, and towel away the surface rust. If you have light machine oil (3n1), a little rubbed on afterward would do a lot to tone down the rust, which might be a buyer’s key negotiating point. If you can find and add the accessories, such as the kerf plates, saw blades, dado kits, push sticks, (magnetic) feather boards, tenon jigs, (upgraded) miter gauge, etc., then you could easily ask and get even more ($225 to 275 uncleaned might get closer to $375 to $450, once cleaned, oiled, and added accessories).
