I’m actually a little sad to post this, but I don’t have to room to hang onto this now that I have my Walker Turner 2221 saw.

This is a great saw and really started me on the right path in woodworking. Take all the negative comments about contractor saws and throw them out the window, none of them apply here.

The 1 1/2” HP motor will handle an 8” Dado stack, and full kerf blades. Will rip 2.5” thick walnut blanks without blinking. I also rip maple and other easy to burn woods with a combo blade and no burning. This is simply a great saw.

Sits on the original flare foot stand with pop up casters ( AKA Mobile Base ) Dust collection adaptor installed onto the base of the saw.

Comes with Delta T2 Fence, original miter gauge, and upgraded Delta splitter (easy tool less removal/install) , plus the original splitter/guard and whatever I find laying around that might help you get to using the saw.

I also have the original insert and a handful of 1/2” plywood Zero Clearance Insert blanks.

Pulleys where upgraded to machined steel and I have put a Link Belt on it, basically a 60 dollar upgrade item that many people use.

I have a few extra carbide blades to throw in, One is an older Freud finish blade.

I also have the Original manual, and spare parts baggie.

$375.00

I’m in North West Indiana right by south Chicago area, but will consider deliveries/meeting 1/2 way with reasonable distances and time frames (for example, asking me to drive to the north end in the middle of rush hour is out, but a Sunday morning drive is fine).

Nice saw. Have you tried posting it on craigslist? I’m sure you’ll get some interest on there also.

Not yet, I was giving a first go of it just on WW forums.

I’m going to do the CL listing this weekend if nothing happens.

This is my saw minus the rail fence. Mine has the older pipe one. Good saw. Sets up and holds the settings. Good saw.

I’m giving this another bump, potential sale fell through. This is OBO – I’m willing to talk price if you have an offer to make.

I think your asking price is more than reasonable. It’s an American made classic saw that appears to be in great shape and setup nicely. Stick to your guns, you’ll get it.

No model numbers, hp rateings, and pics ? Not that I’m in the market for one, I can’t afford squat right now, but others may want the information.

You sound a little sentimental on letting this go, I remember I had a Makita 8” saw that to this day I wish I’ve kept, dam good little saw. It serve me well over the years. I hope it find a good home,...good luck Blkcherry

I have 1 complete jointer (jointer, stand, motor) and 1 jointer without anything else.

I’m probably going to keep the complete one, sell the king-seeley craftsman (a great jointer) and sell the incomplete unit.

The incomplete one is from the 30’s “Delta Quality Tools” prior to any mergers with Milwaulkee, Cresent, or Rockwell. I have 700 scroll saw + stand from that era as well.

I can let that jointer go for 75. Scroll saw + stand is 150 (1/3 hp motor with the scroll saw)

Have your say...
