in my opinion he’s asking $240 too much.

even with the mobile base, the forrest blade and the unifence, it’s kinda high.

Edit: I’ve seen plenty of older Unisaws with the shorter rip capacity go for 600$.

It’s on the high side IMO. If it had 2 cast iron wings, I’d consider $375 to $400. Offer and $300-$325. If he’s not interested, see what he’d take if he keeps his blades….he can resell them himself.

Used blades generally don’t sweeten a deal very much, but the Forrest is probably worth ~ $35-$40 if its in good shape….add sharpening costs, and you could be into a used blade for $60-$75 pretty quickly, so compare the end cost with a new blade, and decide what it’s worth to you.

That saw new cost between $500 and $600. I also think that the price is high.

Way too high IMO, you should be able to find a nice cabinet saw for that price. Have some patience and keep looking.

The Jet is a good machine. Right tilt though, which I personally don’t care for. Its been listed since Oct 31st. You might offer $500.

This is pretty nice too. $350-400 might be a good offer. The fence system is worth $200ish by itself. Decent, entry level cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer fence.

Thanks for the feedback

I was looking at this one… but I couldn’t find the manual for it. One of the things that made me skip-over was that it didn’t had wheels / casters and it looks very heavy… I am a one man operation… :) on a very small work-area, so mobility is a decision factor.

No way would I pay that. I’d not go over 150 bucks for that.

It’s priced like a used Proshop, but it’s a used Jet contractor saw…..right tilt at that….probably a JWTS-10CW2-PF (708304k) or similar with an outboard motor, traditional splitter, connecting rods, etc. Being right tilt makes it 12-15 years old. It’s a nice enough saw, but I hope whoever bought it didn’t pay a premium thinking it was the Proshop hybrid.

Here’s a Proshop model:

Here’s what they posted:

This Craftsman 22124 is a better buy at $500 than the Jet contractor saw IMHO….made by Steel City/Orion, cabinet mounted trunnions, Biesemeyer Commercial fence, (2) solid 12” cast iron wings, internal motor with serpentive belt drive, weighs in @ ~ 425#....~ 7-9 years old. It preceeded the current 22116. An offer of $425-$450 would be reasonable IMO. http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/tls/4754994683.html

During your search for a saw, keep in mind that a mobile base will only cost $50-60. While its definitely a consideration (i love my mobile base), I wouldn’t automatically disqualify a saw that doesn’t come with one.
