I hope it’s OK to post a link to ebay. These are not mine, but may be a great buy for someone.
$250, $350 and $400
34-466,34-450 and another 34-450
http://www.ebay.com/sch/midwestrmg/m.html?item=181093126929&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a29fdd311&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

Extension tables, overarm blade guides and more are included with each saw. At least one is listed as “maybe 3ph 2hp”.

peace, T

How do you know those aren’t just starting prices with a much higher reserve?

With the Biesemeyer fence it probably isn’t a bad deal if you live close by Brainerd, Minnesota. But, my guess by looking at them is that the machines were probably used in an industrial or commercial setting were they have probably seen alot of use, especially when they are that old. Rockwell hasn’t made saws in many years. Plus, I’m a little leary about them not being upfront about what phase that the motors run on. They can be a good saw, but could very well cost you alot of money to replace the motor with a single phase, replace bearings, belts, gears, switches, etc. plus your time. Weather they are good deals I guess you’d have to be there and able to look them over really well, and play with the mechanisms a little to know for sure.

They look to me like they were set up for school use.

Of course schools are pretty much obliged by insurance
concerns to replace table saws these days with saws
made by a certain company.

Seller’s statement:

“MidwestRMG provides a service to our clients, many of which are schools and public agencies in need of capital to help offset the dramatic declines they have experienced in funding. We create an opportunity for our clients to raise much needed capital through the sale of their excess assets while giving our buyers the opportunity to experience significant price savings! “

Interesting, those very well could be the ones from my old Highschool if they’re coming out of Forest Lake…

Yes, there are many unknowns about the listings. But anyone in the area looking for this type of project have March 7 and 8 to inspect the machines. Or email the lister. Just wanted to let anyone know.

peace, T
