Tomet Cold Saw
I just bought a Tomet Cold Saw Model 351 at an auction over the weekend.
Can you guys tell me who makes Tomet Saws and do they have a website?
Also, can you tell me a ball park figure of what my saw is worth?
My saw is in great condition, it has a nice angle vice, coolant line with pump, and a 2 speed motor. I also got 3 new carbide tip blades with the saw.

They are Italian, and seem to mostly make bandsaws.
As for value, more info-
Is your saw a non-ferrous saw- which the carbide tipped blades would suggest?
A ferrous saw would have speeds of 15 rpm to maybe 70rpm, while a non-ferrous might be anywhere from 1500 rpm to 5000rpm or more.
What are the two speeds?
Is it 350mm blade size? (14")
Is it 3 phase?
whats it weigh?
Is it manual, or semi-auto?
My guess is its probably worth a grand or so, if its manual and slow, ferrous cutting. More if its semi-auto. But its an odd brand, with virtually no US support. So that would make it a harder sell. Blades should be available from the other brands, and you can get HSS blades resharpened.
