I will crate and deliver to a freight terminal FOR FREE.
You will have to pay the freight cost, or you could pick it up locally. I will deliver within 200 miles for a small fee. I can deliver to the Washington, DC area in the next couple of weeks for an even smaller fee.
I was already trying to sell this saw because it is more equipment than I need. However, today some neighborhood kid WALKED OVER MY WIFE’S CAR. It is now imperative that I sell this machine to make room for two cars in the two car garage. I am going more with handtools/bandsaw work because my pieces are a lot smaller these days, I just don’t need this much saw.
This saw was owned by a well intentioned hobbyist, he bought it, used it a few times, and let it sit for around 20 years before he moved and sold it. Most of the “wear” on the machine has been done by me, and I’ve owned the saw for less than a year. It is in excellent shape.
Price is $1800, this saw with the accessories included was north of $3500 back in the late 80’s, when $3500 was REAL money not something the federal reserve made up on a whim.
This is from my Craigslist listing:

This is my last price drop, and it is firm. If it does not sell for $1800 I will keep it. The saw is exceptional, and I am only selling because I want to downsize as I switch to more hand-tool use in my woodworking. I bought this saw thinking it would be the “last table saw I would ever need to buy” which it is, I will not be replacing it with another table saw if it sells. If I was still doing large work that needed a table saw, it would not be for sale.
This is my INCA brand 2100 Table Saw, Swiss precision!. It is a 12” saw with a 1” arbor. These saws were some of the first commercially available saws with a riving knife instead of a splitter. The riving knife is vastly superior in protecting the user from kickback. In 2009 Underwriter’s Laboratory will require all new table saws in the US to have riving knives due to their superior safety characteristics.
The traditional “stereotypes” of Swiss engineering show through on this saw. The top is precision cast, machined, and anodized aluminum (if you have a basement shop that is had to get tools into, this may be reason enough to go with the INCA). The blade is raised and lowered on twin worm-screws, rather than a single worm screw and a pivot point. The fence is adjustable, with four different settings for different types of work, what this does is allows you to set the fence so you can EASILY cut in the safest manner. I have never found a situation where the fence got in the way of me using a push stick or any other type of safety device.
2HP motor, it is wired 220v now, it can be wired 110v. I have never been able to bog this motor down even when ripping 12/4 red oak.
Included with the base saw is: TWO sets of fence rails, regular and extended. The SUVA overhead blade guard, safe and convenient to use. INCA table extension with a porter cable router mounted for a router table. A 60T INCA blade, and a BRAND NEW 36T CMT Rip blade, this is CMT’s “Glue Line” rip blade, it is excellent. A crosscut sled I made for the table saw, and a box-joint jig I made for the router table. The INCA professional Miter gauge, much better than that dinky gauge that comes with most americanized saws. When new this saw would have cost over $3500!
If you don’t know about inca tools check the yahoo group, or do some searching on google. These precision swiss tools are no longer imported, but parts are readily available from Eagle Tools.
