Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
Don't get me wrong. I think this saw has really good appeal, and value. Just like the saws available via Malaysia from AS member "Robin Wood", and someone else already paid to bring this 272 to the US.
I don't know if the term NOS (new old stock) only applies to products no longer being made. I thought NOS (new old stock) was a term given to a item that manufactured long ago but never used, where as NOS (new obsolete stock) is the term given to those products no longer being made/produced.
Jeez um, pay attention would ya.
Either way its old (2008) and still never been used. At the same time its is a Brazilian made 272, which might still be made even in 2015 from what I gather.
