    It may not be that they sold a lot of units... More likely that almost every one ever sold is still around and for sale somewhere

      unlike today's companies, it doesn't seem like they were familiar with "planned obsolescence" - the shorter the lifespan of your product, the more turnaround you get because people need to keep buying and replacing! not that it's a "better" way of doing things!

        For you 1950's Craftsman fans http://windsor.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...AdIdZ372353096

        Although it is listed as 8" I am pretty sure they never made one that size, probably a six inch.

            i dont know the reasons, the deal must have been good for all told

            rockwell got a great foundry facility, the callanders probably got a lot of cash!!

            the beavers must have pretty expensive to make, especially with all the aluminum castings and the complexity of the tools particularly the jointer

            the molds for the one piece bodies of the 3200 tablesaw and 3300 bandsaw must have been massive, the bandsaw frame is one piece from top to bottom of the saw, must be 5 feet tall
            my shop is a beaver lodge

              If anyone out there really wants a Beaver 4200 for their collection here is an option:

              http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-se...AdIdZ372847716

              No idea if the circular grill for the base is part of the package or missing. Same goes for the blade guard.

                  Maybe he can get it to look like this one I believe he once made an offer on one.

                    Yes he did... There's one locally to me that pops up every once in a while. The seller wants a little too much for it and refuses to budge on his price.

                        Steve, are far are you from this guy and do you still have room in your trailer, I beleive it is a Beaver 3300. Only interrested in the band saw itself.

                          I don't think this one has been posted - I couldn't afford her asking price and she declined my counter offer of $450 for three of the tools - maybe someone here has deeper pockets than me

                            yeah id like to have a 4200!! really fill up the garage now the ridgid is gone

                            btw, the 2 quest machines for me now is that 4200 saw and a disk/belt sander, not the rockwell 1900(i have one) but the much older and rarer beaver one

                            the only new tool in my shop now is the dewalt planer

                            jacques if you want the 3300, go for it, its 2 hours from me but i travel that way often. we'll get it in the trailer somewhere!!

                            its a nice looking saw, has a newer fence than mine, mitre guage(bonus), i cant see the lower guide but the upper guide appears complete(broken guides are common)

                                a little pricey imho, nice sander, i have one, its a rockwell 1900, that one has two tables(rare option), the bandsaw is a smaller brother to the 3300, the dp is the smaller 2700
