  • Hegner Help me Price $ please

    I need some help pricing a Hegner saw I am listing it on eBay for $575.00 free shipping and anything under $100.00 will be refunded for shipping, and have it listed on craigslist for $400 I want to sell it but not give it away. It does not have the quick release that the newer models have and the bottom of the bellows have stretched and has separated but can be rectified with a large hose clamp or buying a new bellow(cosmetically it is in B++ -A shape) and cuts flawlessly .
    Help me ask a fair price, I need to sell because I bought it for $500 + shipping on eBay and later found one on craigslist for $600 that included the stand that I purchased.

    Thanks for any replies...

    I paid $600 for one like the one you are offering, (1986 model) just this past year.

      I bought a Mutimax 18V with the stand, mfg. in 1992. Found it on Craig's List, and 10 hour round trip drive to get it. Since then, I have spent over $300 to upgrade it, and replace the connector. It now sits in a corner, a monument to the worst tool investment I ever made. It breaks the blade in the bottom holder after 5 minutes of sawing, guaranteed. 4 phone conversations with Jean @ Hegner, and the situation remains the same. Emailed Jean asking specifically for a way to identify spacers other than #56, 57 and 60, as the information they gave me does not coincide with the size of the spacers--Jean wrote back--call us. I hope you get what you are asking, but if I'd just bought a BRAND NEW Excaliber, I would have about the same money invested in something that cuts reliably. Meanwhile, I sit here anxiously awaiting the phone call from Dewalt informing that my DW788 has been rebuilt and is ready to pick up. Good luck. <vent-vent-vent>

        I bought a few new pieces of equipment last year. I researched the tar out of them. Kept putting it off. Debating. Convincing myself they were pure "wants", and definitely not needs. I got impulsive and then ordered a couple of things. Nearly cancelled the orders too, since they were...

        I’m doing what’s on the cover of Woodworks and Crafts, Sept 2004, for a special customer. I’m going to use 1/2” wood and back with verigated grays for the background. I really love working with White oak and other quarter sawn wood. It makes beautiful baskets.

        Now that you mention it Rolf, he just said something about a Nova! Woodcraft doesn’t have the Rikon in stock but it is free delivery to the store, which isn’t too far from us. Next week, he will still be deciding.

        At my stage in life, it is called spending the spending the kid's inheritance. The older I get the easier it is becoming.

        While quartersawn wood is beautiful I find it a bit tricky to scroll. It is not for every project. When you hit the start of the growth ring the wood is hard and the cut slows but when you hit the pulp in between the rings it is soft and the cutting speeds up....
