I just picked up a brand new r4512 saw off of ebay for $275. In the listing, it is noted as being sealed in the box, powering up and tilts and locks ok. Get it home and unbox it and find the motor assembly on the bottom of the box with a broken trunion. I haven't called them yet as it was after hours by the time I discovered it. Looks like a new one can be had for ~125 or I can have my welding buddy fix it (certified tig). I figure they are going to offer to refund my money. However, it was a 5 hour round trip. Since either option is about the same cost, is this saw worth repairing? They seem to have a favorable rating. If I return the saw I will probably end up with a Porter Cable from Lowes. Wish there were good saws on craigslist...all I see are $50 craftsman saws that are 20 years old...
No announcement yet.
