Powermatic 66 TS for $450....
I recently was offered a powermatic 66 table saw for 450 dollars. The saw has had one owner and was bought in early 1980's. I turned it on the other day and it sounds smooth and quiet. The overall body is in good to fair condition and top is rust free. The beisemeyer fence system seems to lock down rock hard. The laminate needs to be replaced as it has a few chips.
I am considering buying the saw for this price as I have talked him down from 550 to 450 as his final price. I know there are a lot of questions and if ands or buts, but is this a good deal? It has the 52 inch fence system, etc.
Looks good. If I was to purchase this I would like to really fix it up and make it look new... so any suggestions as to forums or websites I can get information would be GREATLY appreciated.
PS. I am selling a 2412 Ridgid Table saw in Good to excellent condition. This saw is in the Boise, Idaho area so let me know if you are interested.
