What would be a decent price for a 2005 Powermatic 66 table saw with 52” fence and extension table, 5hp motor in great condition?

Single phase?

What part of the Country?

Any accessories with it (dado insert, etc.)?

Previous use (hobby vs. professional shop)?

Good questions that I will ask the seller. It’s a single phase and is in NC.

$800

It probably lacks a riving knife.

”$800

LOL….........

That would certainly be a deal, but I hardly think the absence of a riving knife warrants that much of a discount. Comparable saw today is $3700.

hopefully, this is a reference to either a new sawstop cabinet saw or a new delta unisaw. anyone paying that much n for a new powermatic TS is wasting their money.

That saw would be over $1,000 around here, maybe $1,300-$1,400. Hurts to pay that much for used, but that seems to be where I see them on CL. Not sure if they get that or not.

I paid $1400 for a 5hp 2005 PM66 about 3 years ago and thought I got a good deal, not a gloat but I was happy. It came with the mobile base and about 10 blades. It was in really good condition and passes the nickel test (also the penny test and almost passes the dime test). I see much older PM66’s on CL for $800-1000.

I am in the Sacramento CA region.
