I’m 30 and looking to get into woodworking more.

My father’s a contractor and really good but borrowing tools is a pain in the arse. Not to mention he typically just does the project himself.

I’m looking at a 6 year old Delta 36 714 Table saw with Beisemeyer fence and some feather boards. Just like the one below but has comes with the rolling base.

Guy is asking $500 but is easy an hour away. I was going to offer $380.

What do you think its worth? He used it to do his kitchen cabinets, its left tilt also.

Thanks
Rc

$500 isn’t a bad price if it’s nice shape and has cast iron wings. $380 might be a little low, but ya never know….they might just take it.

Being new and not having 220 wired yet, will this 1.5 hp motor be adequate? I see some older 3hp Unisaws for $800 and wonder if getting those for say $600 would be a better idea.

Granted, the Delta I’m talking about does come with the Besse fence and right side table I could mount a router in.

1.5hp will cut most woods to full blade height without too much issue, but a lot depends on the alignment and the blade choice.

3hp will require 220v. There’s definitely more power with 3hp, but finding a good 3hp Uni for $600 is far from a guarantee….and getting one for $600 with a Biese fence is even less probable. The “bird in hand” adage comes to mind.

My opinion is that if it’s in decent condition that is a the original price would be fair to both buyer and seller.

I would tell you to buzz off if I was selling that for $500 and
you offered less.

At $500 you better not hesitate because somebody
else will probably buy it by the end of the day.

it’s a hybrid. is a used left tilt delta hybrid with a (assumed) 30” fence worth $500?

Prices are regional. I think that saw would sell for more than $500 in my area.

Have your say...
