I’m going to look at this TS this afternoon. Says it hasn’t been used since his father passed away in 1999. it looks almost brand new. It is disassembled, so what should I do to test it and what would you consider a fair price?

The model # is 315.228510. I’ve been looking only at 113’s so I’m not sure if this is as good a model.

Thank you!!!

Note that there is no miter gauge or rip fence with this

welcome to LJ’s

i googled that model #

what mostly showed up
were reviews from other blog sites

you might want to do the same
and see what they say

to me the price would be important
especially as it is all in pieces
and missing parts (like the miter and fence)

It’s basically the same saw as the 113’s.. but I would have to ask myself why it’s in pieces like it is.

Edit: those saws go for around $100-$300 depending on condition around my area.. older beat up ones for a little less. It looks to be in pretty good shape, but given that it’s in pieces, I’d offer maybe $50. The motor should have a plug on it, so theoretically you should be able to take the blade off and plug it in to see if it runs.

Cheers,
Brad

Well the guy said make him an offer, i’m trying to see what people here would consider a fair offer for it.

Also, how to test it because it is apart

Thanks again

Were that saw complete & in good/great condition….
I would maybe pay around $125.00 – $200.00….
Many of the older 113 TS (with a lesser quality fence) go for $75.00 – $150.00….

As Fred said, I’d offer $50.00…. even $75.00.
The motor alone is worth that, IF it works.
If the motor doesn’t work, I would probably walk away….

He says he took it apart because it was in parent’s basement and he had to take it apart to bring it to his house.

So when I go over, besides plugging in the motor, what else can I do to test this TS in the assembled state.

^ That’s nuts!

Assembled, rust free and running perfectly with the Align-a-Rip fence (that’s what the rails indicate was on it), $200 is probably fair.

Tell him to re-assemble it back the way it was and get it running so you can test it.. at least then you can figure what, if anything, is missing.. and then you might consider it.. otherwise, keep looking.

Cheers,
Brad

I told him that he was asking too much and sent him 2 examples of models priced the same with all the pieces

That is a direct drive wouldn’t I be better off with a belt drive?

Yes, direct drive uses a universal motor…. VERY noisy!!!
It looks like the CL posting from Western Mass…. is a direct drive also.

I got this email back “I realize I was way off as on the pricing even if I had the fence and miter gauge.
I would like to make a deal with you on the saw” at least he is reasonable
