Without seein’ the saw or details, I would say that the price is fine. Have you contacted the seller for any specs? If it is not at least a 14” capacity, I’d kinda back away. That being said, I have a MAGNA ( predicessor to the SHOPSMITH ) 11” that I have used for years. Just wish I had something larger.

Hmmm. Perhaps if you only had $75 to spend. You cannot add a riser block to this saw, so there is really not a upgrade path.
