OWWM Rule No. 5: In the time between finding a machine and asking others if you should buy it someone else will come to the proper conclusion. I hesitated, only 5 minutes or so, but that was long enough, I lost this:

The seller did right though, let me know I was second in line by 2 minutes and when the first guy showed up, he bought it. He said it didn’t run and he needed space in his garage, I suspect it would have been a very simple fix. Oh well, you snooze, you loose.

Look for Estate sales too. That’s how I got my Ridgid 15” Floor Standing Drill Press for $125. Different tool, I know, but the savings speaks for itself.
