Topic tags/keywords: question

Can anyone give me an idea of the value for a Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw? I have a friend with a brand new one that he would like to sell. I just looked at it this morning. The tags are still on it, the table is unassembled, and the saw has never been plugged in or ran.

it’s very much like the clamp together support column craftsman RASs $100-$200. the saws fell out of favor with the advent of of sliding compound miter saws. suckers who don;t know tools might be wowed by the “tags” that are still on it and might pay more, but knowledgeable woodworkers know better. CL is the best place to sell something like that. just my humble opinion.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.

You can find Craftsman lookalikes to the Ridgid RAS on craigslist almost daily around here for $50-$100. I don’t want to say that your buddies saw isn’t necessarily worth more than that but I wouldn’t pay over $100 if I were in the market for one. There are just way too many RAS’s out there collecting dust to pay a premium for one.

Agreed, unless they’re old iron the best pricing is matching a used 90’s Craftsman version plus a little more. I own a lot of Ridgid Stationary but their Lathes and RAS are not shining examples of innovative manufacturing.
