I saw this for sale for $100 but haven’t really looked into much. Not that interested really but curious if anyone has used one. Wondering, do these work okay?

It’s an early ‘60s King-Seely model complete with an original multi-tool stand, looks like, so $50-80 is about right if the motor works. I think this model doesn’t have an adjustable outfeed table, so you need to align the blades to it for it to work correctly.

shampeon – thanks for the feedback. When I saw this, I thought, “That’s a neat ol’ thing.” It’s not really what I’m looking for though.

These things are all over craigslist here in St. Louis. I see them anywhere from $50-$250, though I’m sure they’re not selling for 250. I think I even have one somewhere in my dad’s barn. Maybe I should sell it. I don’t think I would pay more than 50 for something you don’t even think will do what you want. I got my long bed grizzly for $225 used and have seen better deals. I would wait for something like that.

firefighterontheside – I’m really looking either for a longer bed 6” or an 8”. I did think this was kind of neat.
