  • BT3000 for sale

    I am on my second BT3000. Just ordered shims from a link I found on here and the SMT slides from another find here. I really love this saw and have a chance to buy a lightly used one for $300. Includes Ryobi router and double miter slot options. I want to keep the motor, miter slots, and a few other items. I already have 2 rip and SMT fences. Do you think I part out the rest of it and get my $300 back?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Looking at used parts ads on eBay the owners want (but don't necessarily get) prices like $50 for SMT with miter fences, rip fences, but I don't think I can think of six subparts to sell for $50 each. I see various things sold... blade guard, wrenches and arbor washers and nuts, but I think it will take a lot of luck to get back $300.

      In this area they go for $50 to $150 complete in good condition. Mostly a niche market now, most people don't even know what they are, since they have not been made for some years and have not been in the box stores for many years.

      Your area could be different on pricing, but it likely has more value as a complete unit than as parts.

      If anyone really wants one and is really willing to pay $300, I have one NIB I could share.

        Thanks for the replies. I think I will pass on this one. I see many parts on EBAY at prices that would me to recoup a good part of the $300, but don't know if they are selling at those prices.

          If the saw is still available, I would jump on it. If you look at Ryobi (bt3000, bt3100) for items for sale you will see the asking price which may be a fixed price
          or a buy ‘it now’ price, or it may be up for bid in and auction. Then look down the list on the left and you can click on ‘closed listings’ and if the $ amount is black it was not sold. If $ in green it was sold and price will show except if best offer was @ccepted. Or look at ‘sold listings’ and see the sold price unless it was best offer accepted.
          you should be able to get:
          sliding miter table. $40-60
          miter gage $50-75
          accessory/router table. $50
          rip fence. $ $60;- 75
          main table. $35
          front and rear rails. $40
          stand $35. May be hard to sell due to shipping for heavy item
          motor guide mount $20
          elevation crank and hardware. $35-50
          blade $25 - 35

          Even if you don’t retrieve the total $300 the difference that you don’t get will be the price you paid fir motor and twin track table inserts. If the saw hasn’t sold for the original price, you may be able to offer $150 or $200 a d th3n your potential increases.

          good luck

            To determine net proceeds Ebay fees and shipping must also be considered. $60 for an SMT is likely to net $30 or less once fees are paid and the item is shipped, for example.

            $300 seems like a high price at this point, with most resales in the $100 to $150 range for complete working saws, and sales of NIB saws in the $200 from the store.

          The seller dropped the price to $250. His ad mentioned he would take a vintage wood plane as part payment. I had an old Pexto plane I was working on restoring and had put aside. I offered him the plane and $200 and he accepted. The SMT is in good shape. The rip fence does not lock on the rear rail, I will get it fixed. It came with a spare belt, SMT sliders, the roller holder and roller and new ends for the miter fence. I installed the double miter slots on my saw today and then cut 18" off the rails and attached them to my rails using 1.25" steel square tubing and some spare T-nuts I had. It worked out great, I now have almost 5' wide table and it seems strong enough it does not need legs. To be determined. It also came with a Ryobi RE1802M router with 3 bases. I am in the process of converting the base to a stand for my sharpening system. I think I can get my money back if I sell the SMT, rip fence and router. I will also have some small parts, the wrenches, arbor nut and spacers, etc. I already have 2 sets of that stuff.

          Woodturner, what stores are still selling NIB BT3000s?

          I will have to find out how to attach pics and send some.

            Sears was selling their variant in the $200 range, but they may be all gone by now. It was actually a better deal than than a couple years ago, if you paid $200 for the saw you got $200 in SYWR points as well.
