any idea what a Delta Contractor Saw is worth?

Just upgraded to a Delta Cabinet saw. I have a 10 year old contractor saw, Biesemeyer fence and Delta Sliding Table attachment. Trying to figure out what it is worth so I can post it on the board at work.
Thanks
Chris

price as follows. I start with about half the price same item new (todays cost). I will add in extras but only at about a third of replacement value because they in fact, extras. In your case your fence to me would be figured at half because a table saw without a fence is not any good to me. but the sliding table is an extra. These, coupled with the equipments condition, are the guide lines I use to determine how much I;m willing to pay to obtain an item. They are also the guidence for setting a price of something I'm selling.
Note: A lot of people forget the reason thay are selling something is they no longer need it and it is in way. (No shop ever has enough workspace or clamps).    I will set a price that allows for bargining room because some people just have to feel they got to get "a better deal".
I hope this helps you get a quick sale at a fair price. The about does not apply to yard sales. George

Decide what's the minium you'll take for it. Then list it with no price, and see what someone will offer for it. If I couldn't come up with a price to ask for it, that's probably what I'd do.

Three years ago I sold a 25 year old Craftsman 10" TS with the crappy fence it came with, two steel wings, one with a router insert, a 4" Craftsman jointer that bolts to the side of the TS legs, and a real POS 1/4" Craftsman router. $250 for the works. The buyer never flinched.

Patriarch, who six years ago, bought a 25 yr old craftsman 10" contractors' style tablesaw, used it once, when it scared the hell out of him, and traded it out for some roofing work on the shed out back. Paid $200, and was happy with both transactions...

In good shape, 1/2 - 3/4 new price. I bought a Delta CS five years ago for $650. It sells for around $950 now. I has got to be worth more than what I paid for it. Greg

Considering that brand name table saws come with 1-2 year warranties, I'd never consider paying 3/4 price for one that has no warranty, no matter what condition its in.

outserved them. The old ones were not made "good enough," they were made for a lifetime.
At ten years, not sure where this one fits, but it's definitely not the saw that my 25-year old, or my son's 40 year old contractors' is. Gave $250 for his, and considered it a bargain for a saw that sold for $500 new.
Oh, wait just a minute - that was five hundred 1965 dollars....

Yeah, the warranties on quality tools will likely be used only for initial quality issues (warped table or something). You will not find any workmanship problems in a Delta saw once the initial kinks are worked out.
Your choice to buy new though. That's an expensive warranty you're paying for, plus any downtime on warranty work.
I don't plan to buy new stationary tools ever again, regardless of my budget.

I bought one 6 years ago w/ the default guard and fence and paid $450 for it. Not sure what the upgraded fence and table would bring (might be easier to sell the sliding table separately) but I'd think $600 or so.
