That would be about a $1100 to $1400 saw today, but being due to its age it will not have a decent blade guard and no riving knife. As far as everything else, that is probably a fine saw.

Why haven’t you gone to pick it up?

They go for a bout grand BRAND NEW!

BUT – Before you buy a steel city think about this arbor problem reported on LJ three years ago and still not corrected:

AFAIK, the 35600 was very similar to the popular Craftsman 22124 that was made by Steel City/Orion….nice saw, great fence, cabinet mounted trunnions, good track record. I believe these were made in the 2004-2006 range before the arbor problem that was mentioned… different saw, so that should be a non issue here. $600 is a reasonable deal IMO.

See Frostyjo's review of the 22124 here.

I have the 3 HP 35905, bought it in 2008. The only issue I had with it was it had two rear rails, SC shipped me another fence within a week from CA. I am very happy with this saw, really like the riving knife and it keeps its setting when I need to bevel (setting it back to 90 degrees-unlike the contractor saw I used to own). It’s a pretty solid saw much better in many ways than the Delta Contractor I had for several years. I paid about $1300 for the SC and it had a Forrest WWII blade thrown in (promotional). My saw looks pretty similar to the one you have pictured. I have not had any arbor issues at all and have used a full dado stack pretty often. I have a JET lathe and jointer, as well as a Grizzly Bandsaw and it’s just as well built as any of those machines. I would think 600.00 is pretty fair if it hasn’t been abused as I saw it might have been used in a cabinet shop. Hope this helps you,
