I did nothing but buy a blade and plunge it in..later I built a stand.I'd get it. That's an amazing price for a really fine saw. I know there are some great bargains here and there, but I'm not at all interested in refurbishing any machinery, so I almost always buy new. But, man, $399 is a good price.
If you happened upon one, that would be good. I bought all my tools during the last decade of my business life, when I had lots of money and never enough time. I guess you could search ebay or other sources, but you can't count on finding a great bargain. And a lot of machinery does not survive shipping, especially if packed by someone who doesn't know how. All of that factors in my suggestion to buy it at what is a good price.I did nothing but buy a blade and plunge it in..later I built a stand.
