Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw

This guy’s had this ad up a few weeks now. Looks like it’s in very good condition. A good price with all the extras that are included. No, I don’t know the seller, just thought I’d put it out there for any local Jocks.

Price seems high, even accounting for the portable dust collector. Those things are pretty cheap.

The 3612 was the best of the bunch of the contractor style table saws that carried the RIDGID brand. If as described, the saw alone is worth $275- $300. If the 8 individual blades and the dado set are not junk then they and the DC might be worth the extra $$. $425 is certainly not a bargain basement price but it’s not an overly high starting point.

Yeah, but it has 8 blades and a dado set, that’s around $200 right there. 200 to 250 for the saw and then DC is free, After dealing you could probably get it all for $375.

and, FWIW, the 3612 carries a lifetime guaranty against manufacturing defects, regardless of who owns it. check the last page of the OM:

Without knowing if the extra blades are harbor freight trash or actually decent, there’s no way to know if they’re worth anything.

That lifetime guarantee is nice, but doesn’t cover anything other than original manufacturing defects. Any problem with that saw is not going to be due to a manufacturing defect and thus won’t be covered.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my 3650, I’d just look carefully at all the extra stuff it comes with and talk him down some on the price. If its a decent dado set and a decent regular blade or two in that bunch, then it could easily be worth $400, but there’s just no way to know.

That’s right! The 3612 was made by Emerson Electric.

I just paid $300 for a brand new 3612 in North Jersey. So if the accessories are good – this is on the high end of an acceptable deal, but I’d look to get it in the $350 – $375 range.

Bullet – That is a good deal. They were discontinued about 8 years ago. To find a brand new one is a great find.

tefinn – Yeah – I was surprised too. Guy bought it, put it together and never used it. Sat in his dad’s basement since 2005. Lucky me. Hehe

Bullet, just for clarity and FWIW, the 3612 was discontinued in September of 2003.

Hmmm. Not sure when it was bought, but 2005 is when he put it in the basement. He was a HD manager and got it when it hit the “discontinued clearance” aisle.

It was late 2004, early 2005 when we clearanced out those saws when I was a dept head for HD. We got the new models sometime late 04, early 05. We couldn’t let them on the floor til all the older models were sold or marked out of inventory after the clearance process. I bought a bandsaw, drill press and scrollsaw when they were marked down to final price (got the whole shebang for less than $200). We didn’t have any table saws left unfortunately.
