I have a chance to buy a 70FX for $500, tax in.
It is a display model, never used. The bed and fence are discolored, but not pitted and will clean up nicely, I think.
The only problem mechanically is the left front lever, part # 85 in the parts manual, is broken.
The lever is still attached but is broken inside the pivot ball, so it can’t fall out or be pulled out, or unscrewed as it is. it just sort of hangs there uselessly. It would have to be partly dismantled and the broken part removed and replaced.
My question is: Is it worth it?
All the comments I have been able to find online, (around 20) seem very favorable, but I would like to hear from owners, or anyone who has used one, or seen one used.
Any comments would be appreciated.
