Hey folks, new to the site, thought I’d reach out for some advice. I’m new to woodworking and looking to purchase my first saw. I’ve done a bit of research and would like to purchase one w/out breaking the bank.

I’ve found a Grizzly TS G1022Z. Looks to be in good shape, no rust etc. I am concerned as the cord “has gotten hot and melted” which was covered by electrical tape. I’ll get some clarification…

It’s listed for $400 which is a good bit overpriced from my research. Anyone have any ideas how much this saw is worth approx.? I don’t think its worth over $150-$200. Thoughts?

Given that the cord is melting and it’s really kind a low end saw , I think I’d pass on it all together if I were you.

If you are located near a wood working group, take the time to attend some meetings and determine what others are using and how they chose that tool.

If not, well check craigslist often and get feedback after you read prior entries here and converse with other LJ’s. Also you will have to determine your level of comfort in using a particular power tool. You may fine you prefer and/or a different tool will meet your needs that you initially thought (what are you going to use the tool for and/or plan to use it for)
