You have to set a budget and get what ever pops up that’s a good deal, if you don’t someone else will and quickly. I had to pass on a 37” Timesavers wide belt sander for $450 and a 10hp single phase motor for another $400 not too long ago. The issue wasn’t the speed getting ahold of the guy selling it, it was that after getting it in my shop I wouldn’t actually have room to use it. I thought about buying it just to install the single phase motor, clean it up and flip it. The limited customer base that might be interested in something that large and power hungry (for homeowner use anyway) worried me more than a little.
