Same thing anything is worth: whatever a buyer will pay. I'd say, for
that item, between 50 and 300 dollars.

Can't see it from here. An old Real Rockwell, or the current current
Rockwell-branded crap I see at the Borg? Condition, hours, how flat is
the table (and how big is it), any visible rust, any metal-on-metal
screeching when it is powered up, etc? Cast iron, stamped, or plastic
table? Cheap pot-metal fittings, or machined castings? Kinda like a used
car- you have to spend some hands-on time with it, and let it talk to you.

Lacking any details or knowledge of the local used market in your town,
I'd say go to the Borg or Sears, find a saw with similar specs, and
offer half of what the new price is. A large pawn shop is also a place
to go, to see the high side of local used prices, as well as Craig's
List. Table saws with 10" blades run the gamut from $200 18" table toys
that are fine for building birdhouses and bookshelves, through
'contractor grade', to shop models that weigh a ton and last for forty
years, and cost thousands of dollars. (Only got to use one of those
once, in a millwork plant on a Saturday. 48" square table, huge motor,
etc. It made going back and using a jobsite saw very depressing.)

Hi,
Peruse eBay. May give a clue.

I see them on craigslist for up to a couple hundred dollars, and down to free.

I tried selling a 10" sears saw for $100 and only got 1 nibble.

If it's the Rockwell/Delta 10" motorized ( built in motor) Table Saw I had
one for about 20 years not the most solid saw out there but it served me
well I sold it for about $100 15 years ago. If it's the 10" contractor saw
there a really nice saw I would think if it's in any decent shape a couple
hundred. The contractor saw has a removable motor mounted on the back., open
base. Do you have a pic. of it ?

Peruse eBay. May give a clue.


Who would buy/sell such a saw on EBay ? The shipping alone would be more
than the saw is worth. Try something LOCAL like Craigslist

People sell stuff like that all the time on eBay. Local area buyers pick
it up. You can even search eBay for items within a specified radius of
your own zip code.

The two listed here is worth some $$, too bad its three phase.

Visited a shop in Chicago once that did custom interior woodwork for
restaurants and upscale bars and the owner let me play with his
monster sliding table saw and a few other power toys. Couldn't bear to
look at my pitiful collection for a few days. Like looking at Chevys
(Corvette excepted) after being in a Ferrari store.

depends on condition and age. Sadly, the older a tool is the more I'm likely to
be interested in it.
