I am preparing to move out of state and will be selling most of my woodworking equipment. Any advice on an appropriate price for a Delta Tilting Arbor UniSaw with Unifence and extensions on both sides of the saw. well cared for and in v. Good condition. Lots of good blades and accessories.

Thanks!

That's not a Unifence. It looks more like a rebuilt Biesmeyer, but I agree on the price estimate that Phil gave. It should sell reasonably quickly at that price. You might get a few hundred more, but it would likely take a few months to sell it at the higher price.

I recently sold one in worse condition, but completely operable for $1200 , it had no accessories either. Historically, woodworking equipment (higher end, professional grade type) holds its used value at roughly half of new retail price as it was new. What Im seeing in the used market and I tend to agree, is this type of equipment is increasing in used prices due much higher new costs than just 10 years ago. Just my $.02, FWIW, good luck

Unisaw prices are all over. I paid $300 for mine about 3 years ago. It had standard wings, lacked a miter gauge and dust door. I’ve seen prices over $1k as well. In sum I agree with Phil and Chris on pricing (although if you’re willing to wait, you could probably get a bit more).

Larry, a place to start on an estimate is to figure out how much you put into it with all the accessories and blades. Then you look at condition and if there are any issues. Then you see what a new comparable saw goes for (leave out the Sawstop). Then you figure how long you can keep the saw on the market and how high you want to price it at initially. You can always lower the price if it doesn't sell fast enough.

That last photo shows the raise/lower locking pin and knob are missing. What's worse is that an insect (bee likely) has built a nest in the hollow where the knob/pin used to be. The dust and debris also indicates that the machine has been abandoned for some time. The reason why this machine was taken out of service isn't clear.
I'll have to agree 100% with Phil's assessment.

Poster says he is selling before an out of state move, so machine isn't exactly abandoned.

Bad word usage on my part. The owner had abandoned using that saw for some time for whatever reason. Since he's selling it, he clearly hasn't abandoned ownership.

Thanks for all of the comments.
sold quickly. Could have sold it 4 or 5 times at that price.
i used it regularly- was never “ abandoned”
didn’t notice the missing lock pin.
