Topic tags/keywords: question

Just like the title says, is a Rousseau 2700XL Saw Stand with outfeed worth $275.00? I have a friend of a frend who is trying to sell me his but I don’t understand why he would offer it so cheap? Is there a cheaper alternative, perhaps a DIY solution I’m unaware of? Is the Rousseau even worth buying? My saw alone was $300.00 it’s just crazy to think a table is almost the cost of the saw.

Well, it wouldn’t be worth it – to me.

First, new at Amazon its $325. My policy is that I never buy used for more than 50% of new.

Second, the item itself doesn’t look like its worth $150.

Couldn’t you build one? That would be more fun!

I have several different stands by Rousseau and I think they are darn well worth it. Check out the stand for the Miter saw as well…. Good stuff….. Better yet made in USA….

Meh. If you can buy a used portable saw for $150 and that stand, you can buy a reasonably priced used contractors saw, with a little left over towards a decent aftermarket fence …
