Have you seen the old "guards" on these things? They scream "lost
That's what always kept me from picking up a used one.... as the new
ones are ridiculously expensive.
Mine came with a completely new guard/handle assembly, and table top w/
support brackets, and some other little bells and whistles I forgot
about. The guard is really nice and works correctly for ripping, too.
I certainly could've started using the saw, right then and there, but
I'm the kind of guy who doesn't like other people's dirt. :-) After
cleaning/lubing it all up and doing all the suggested calibrations, it's
better than most new RAS's I've seen. It's sturdy, accurate, smooth,
"safe," and didn't cost $500.
Safe is is quotation marks because anytime a saw travels in the same
direction as the blade rotation, there's added caution one must take
when using it.

In doing a quick search I ran across this:
obviously the same item and Seller.
The Seller has a goodly number of sales, a 99.9% feedback rating and
states that they found the bearings to be in very good condition.
Seems like a safe bet to me.
So...it was worth dealing with a little bit of rust? I'll have to
remember that. ;)
