Picked up a grizzly G1023sl last night, $500. About as clean as you could possibly expect for a 12 year old saw. Table tops near mint, zero wear on the fence. All stock accessories plus a heavy duty mobile base, several fancy grizzly throat plate inserts, and a decent 60 tooth blade (should compliment my current 90 tooth melamine and 40 tooth combo blades). Maybe you could find one cheaper, but definitely not in better shape. Now just have to get it down to the basement…

Good deal. Is it a right or left tilt unit?

left tilt. Wish it had a riving knife, but that would be an extra $700 for a new saw.

Good job. I commend you on buying a great saw. No work to get that one tuned up. Worth every penny.

When I bought my saw off of CL, I could have gone cheaper, but I wanted a good-great condition saw. Glad I did it.

Awesome score!

I picked one up for $600 a while back. Had to change all the bearings, sweet saw! If you ever need to change the bearings it is easy!
