Not my listing, no connection. But- someone is going to get one hell of a good deal. 300 for the saw, another three hundred for a motor and switch- Wow. That sold for 2200 new at least.

That one’s quite a bit out of my way, but that’s the kind of deal I used to live for back when I was buying and reselling things. Even if you don’t need it you couldn’t really miss in a turnaround.

And that, kiddies, is how you use Craigslist. You check it several times a day watching for those super deals. They’re few and far between, but mighty good when you find one.

A Powermatic cabinet saw. The person didn’t have a 220 or 3 phase hookup and hadn’t been able to test it. I think it’s quite likely is was in running condition.

Here is one close to me, no motor or fence, a PM 72A 12-14”, $200.
Probably a Hanford site surplus.
I will says this, once I got used to larger saws, the 10” models seem like toys.

I guess I should be thankful these deals you guys keep finding are at the far corners of the country or I’d be burning some gas. That’s a deal. The 72A is a “7.5 horsepower, three phase, 230 volt unit” and complete one sold for about $900 in a gov’t auction recently. Geez. I wonder what a new motor like that costs…

... I found one at Granger for just under a $1K. Note to self: don’t buy a motorless tablesaw.

Have your say...
