Found this on Craigslist this week for $100. It was still in the original box which had never been opened. It’s a Craftsman 21400. It’s not top of the line but has gotten really good reviews everywhere I’ve looked and will serve my purposes just fine.

I have the Rikon 10” that is the same saw in green paint.
Wouldn’t want to be without it. Great little saw.
Get you some good blades for it.

Boy! I could use one of these guys. That way I could leave the resaw blade on my 14” and have a dedicated 1/4in blade BS. Enjoy!

Congratulations. How’s the installation and tuning of it ?

I have been happy with my blades from Highland Woodworking.
I got a 1/2” Wood Slicer II for re-sawing, a 1/4” 6 tpi general purpose and a 1/8” 14 tpi for tight curves in thin stock.

There are better blades for the general purpose work but not normally available in 70-1/2” length required by this saw.

+1 on crank’s blade suggestions. just stay away from timberwolfs. they are developing a reputation for having misaligned blade welds. at least the 4 new blades i git from suffolk woodworking all had misaligned blade welds. i look to iturra design for my blades. they transformed a formerly owned POS 18” jet BS into an adequate, but still below average, performer.
