hey guys, i noticed a performax 16-32 being sold for 600, is that a good price? I believe it’s a 2008 model but seems to be in good condition. what do you think?

I have one and I say that it is a good price. Make sure you get the tool that helps install the sandpaper in the roller. When I got mine used I did not know about it and had to buy one.

You will love it and use it for sure. :)

Make sure the bottom sandpaper part that carries the wood along is not ripped to bad or you will have to get another from Performax or Jet

The belt looks good from what I saw

He said the original motor works fine but he has another motor for just in case—sounds strange but I’ll check it out on Thursday

Price sounds ok.. If it has the infeed outfeed tables all the better.

Why the new motor? Does the original work?

If you get this (i have one and love it) you better have a DC system for it. I would not reccomend running it without some dust extraction.

I agree with Techredneck, you will definately need a dust collector. I have two of the performax 16-32, one an older model with the 1 horse motor and one with the horse and a half. You will absolutely love the machine. The most important thing to remember is to not to take too much of a cut at a time. One quarter turn on the handle works very well for me. For making segmented bowls it is a super tool as you can run your rings through and they are smooth and match up perfectly. Once you own one you will wonder how you ever got by without it.

I got the sander and you guys are right…I wonder how I got by without one of these things. I picked it up from an older fellow and it in good condition too, he really took care of it

I paid $800 for a new one delivered to my house last year. The key was catching the sale. That makes $600 for a used one a little on the high side to me.
