Anyone know what this machine is worth? It looks to be in decent shape. The motor runs well however It will need a new table which is enough to manufacture. What is a fair price for this machine? I want to make an offer on it this afternoon.

Thanks!

Check the bearings the best you can: motor bearings and “play” on the carriage & rail.

What price range are you thinking?

Radial arm saws are really easy to find/buy; sometimes they can be found for free.
e.g. Craigs List – Free Section.

If it is nice and tight, motor sounds good and the blade runs straight – $100 max.

well. for a craftsman radial arm saw.. 100 or less. I agree. but this is a Turret style Rockwell/Delta saw. They are on the rare side.. or am I over valuing this saw

$75.

Those are pretty solid but still not very big capacity.

I’m not far from Loren’s price, I might go $100.

No, I passed. The gentleman wanted $125 for the machine. I had ideas of putting a table on it and selling it in the $400 range or so. I already have a Rockwell Super 990, the 10” version not the 9” so I know how useful and accurate these saws are compared to other Radial arm saws. I think in their day, these were the Cadillac of radial arm saws, while the Dewalts followed closely behind.

If everything was tight, I would have gotten it for $125. That would make a nice restoration!

I really like the Super 900, its fine for most 1 inch hardwood, and can do thicker with patience. I got two, one for $35, and the other for $30.

There’s an old Delta Milwaukee sitting in my Grandpa’s shop he bought at auction not too long before becoming too ill to make it to the shop any more. I’m wondering if it’s worth messing with? The carriage is tight but not particularly smooth, the motor will need bearings but it does run. I think it’s the same as the saw you have pictured but I didn’t write down a model number the last time I was there.

Have your say...
