I have a 16” Makita 2040 that I’m just finishing up restoring. new polyurethane rollers, Cleaned up, greased, new parts where required/ bearings etc… I’ll be setting it up this week and looking to have it move on to someone who can get some good use out of it. Looks about as close to new as you’ll find on one of these. I’ll post pictures tonight,

Looking to get around $1000 for it, but will take offers. Its located in Haverhill, Ma, and due to weight reasons will be local pickup only. If you contact me through this forum I’ll PM you my phone number so you can call and ask questions.

Thanks for the info. I’ve got the new feed rollers back in and things are running nicely on the machine. I have the factory manual that I used to adjust the springs to spec

Indiana with a 508 area code? I’m in Mass with a 508… interesting
