I normally don't do this, but can't resist. It wasn't a pedigreed Unisaw,
but a Taiwan-made cabinet saw with 2hp Emerson motor and 52" Biesemeyer
fence. Years ago, Crapsman used to sell a similar model from their catalog,
under the Crapsman Professional (oxymoron) brand. I just hooked it up and
it runs fine. I won it for $200, used a 10% off ebay coupon (search on
fatwallet.com or your favorite "deals" page), and picked it up locally.
$180 out the door!!!
I thought if you won something you got it for free. The winner gets to
spend money, the losers get to keep theirs. Just does not make sense.
Sounds like you "bought" the saw for $200.
Anyway, good luck with the saw. The fence alone is worth more than what you
The saw has a "Dayton" sticker on it, referring to the Emerson brand
apparently licensed by Grainger, in the same way as Home Depot licenses
Emerson's Ridgid brand. Years ago, I saw identical Crapsman Professional
saws in the Crapsman tool catalog. Thank you for the name of the oem. I
didn't know that. I do believe that is what I won a few days ago.
