Saw a listing for a 14” Rockwell. Says it runs like a top. Guessing about 20years old. Any idea if this is worth pursueing?
thanks!

What do you think a good price would be?

Nancy, hard to tell without more info. But if I was after a 14 it would be an early rockwell/delta. I have owned one in the past and it was pretty good. There would need to be something super special about it to fetch more than 250.00. One thing to watch out for is that these early machines will often have all sorts of bootlegged motor mountings as many folks increased the motor size, etc. If it is all orig. I would give it a hard look.

Have your say...
