Topic tags/keywords: table saw craigslist ticar ls-10

found this for sale near me for $200, I believe its a TICAR LS-10, can’t really find any information on it at all. Anybody have any experience with one? Seems like a good deal for a cast iron table saw. Just need to find room for it in my shop and run a 220 Volt line, ...decisions, decisions.

Thanks!

Well the Ad says he has the Orginal manual , that should lead you to some more information on it. But really for that price I would go for it.

since you can’t find much about it
it might be old enough
to have been made here
or in taiwan
before the stuff from china

just googled this
seems ticar and northwood
were made in the same plant

Patron i believe it was made in Taiwan, saw a forum post about the same LS-10 table saw and all the info I really got out of it was that some one thought it was made in Taiwan.

well still worth a look
if it is in shape
and cast iron
might be worth dickering some

as you know most tools today are plastic or sheet metal
until you get to the pricy cab tools

you can at least look thru the manual
and find out what it is all about

Looks European. Buy it.

Not a standard Taiwan clone for sure. Could be a Japanese
made clone of an American saw.

200$ for a 3hp cast iron top contractors saw in good shape would be worth it to me. Much less a cabinet saw.

If I were in the market for one it would already be in my shop. Even if it needs work it’s worth the $200 in my eyes without knowing much about it. A 3hp cab saw even if it needs work is worth that. I wouldn’t haggle price much if you want it.

to see if you can use dado blades

they are not allowed there
