Well, my show went very well this weekend so I am looking for a drum sand so I can improve the quality of my cutting boards and produce some end grain boards. I just found one on craigslist for $395 and now I need some advice. The manufacture date on the motor is ‘96 and the color of the unit is green. I am not sure when they switched to white. Other then listening/checking for bad bearings and looking at the overall condition, what else should I be looking at or for. This unit also comes with beaucoup belts (per the lister). There is also another one listed for $650 that is 6 years old. Should I spend the extra $250 or is the 14 year old unit good/decent buy? Or are both over priced. I don’t want to spend an extra $250 if I really don’t need to. HELP ME LJs.
