    • I have two cherry midcentury tables my dad made in the 60s.  They need refinishing and I was undecided about what finish to use.  You guys sold me on the Danish natural.  They have aged beautifully and it should show the color nicely.  
    • You can get enough parts off of ebay to build one from.  I've bought several parts from there over the years.  I think some people buy the old ones just to part out. My advice is to buy a Rikon 10-326, or Laguna 14/12 depending on whichever one is on sale.  That coming from a person who wouldn't buy a new table saw, jointer, or planer.
    • I'd try negotiating a bit. If you're worried about parts, check out Iturra Design. He has lots of aftermarket upgrades and parts for them. I'd give you his phone number but I left my catalog at school before they shut it down for Covid. He's in Florida and shouldn't be too hard to locate online.
    • Parts would be my only concern. 
    • You are starting to nudge up into 50% of the price tier of a new saw that would do what that saw will do without all the bolt-ons.  I read hot and cold reports on riser blocks on the cast iron saws. I have an old Delta from the 50's and used as a 14" saw for curvy stuff it does great.  When I start to try to make it something it is not, it gets slippery pretty quick; if you add a "this" then you really ought to have a "that" and so forth.  If $400 is the top of your budget I would certainly give it a good looking at.  It will be more than $400 will buy you new.
