Hi All,

New user here. Enthusiastic hobbiest, very much still learning.

I have the chance to buy a Startrite tilt arbor saw but don’t know what model it is. It’s like the 725 but from what I can gather, they all look pretty similar from that era.

I’m curious to know but also to get an idea of the second hand price is reasonable (~£800).

Are spares easy enough to get? It’ll need a size cabinet cover for example.

Can I tell from just the serial number?

Thanks in advance

Ps. I think it's this one (very similar at least)

Surely if it has a serial number plate it will state the model number?

I would not expect many/any spares to be available given posts here about repairs and making riving knives from scratch etc.
