My hunt for a good used saw deal continues! I’ve found these two saws that are both within a couple hours, and I’m looking for some info and comments on both.
First up is this old girl:
The person who posted can’t tell me much about the saw (brand, model number, or otherwise) but thinks it is about 15 years old. It seems to have a good unifence and incra miter gauge/fence. It also comes with the outfeed table, which I can’t fit in my garage shop, but has a vise on it that might be useful. Asking price is $450.
What can you tell me about this saw? It looks like both wings are on the left. I assume one can still be put on the right, right?
Next up is this deal:
This is the Craftsman 152.221140. It comes with:
I like the cabinet mounted trunnion, solid cast iron wings, and mobile base. I know the fence isn’t the best, but that could be updated in the future. I think I could also add a BORK for a little upgrade in safety. Asking price is a firm $500, which seems a little high but fair considering the add-ons the clean condition.
So what do you guys and gals think? Should I get one of these or keep cursing my 113 for a little while longer? I appreciate all the advice in advance.
