So I found a used table saw and I want your input on if I should buy it or not. The saw is only $400 and doesn’t come with the out feed table mobile base or any blades. I have no issue with that either since I have blades already. The saw is from 2007 and it is the Grizzly G1023 SLX. Should I buy this or wait for something else to become available? The seller is buying a new Sawstop and that is why he is looking to sell.

Thanks for the help!

As far as something better coming along…. I don’t think you will find anything. The thing looks brand new.

Mike, dont worry about whether or not to buy a like new cabinet saw for 1/3 retail value, more then likely the new owner has already made arrangements to pick the saw up tomorrow or the next day. Well u may as well call because after all there is a tiny chance that I could be wrong.

In my area that saw at that price in that condition probably would not last long at all.

The guy is going to be out of town for the week so I am sure that it will be fine. I just am waiting on some info from Grizzly on the serial number. It is just to see if there were any tech reports on the unit.

If yoyu don’t have all the manuals, you might be able to download them off the Grizzly website or request that they mail them- might be a charge for mailing. Wish I could find a bargain like that! Nice find!!!!
