I have an old one I got for $100. I understood they have been out of production for several years. One of the clamps on the end of the drum was damaged so I followed directions on this forum and switched it to hook and loop abrasive rolls. I have since found a deal on a Performax and am using it. I am about to sell the Ryobi to a friend. Hope that helps.

Why sell the Ryobi? I recently purchased one off Craigslist for $50 the clamp for the paper was busted. This seems to be a common problem. My intent was to use hook n loop per instructions on this site if I can ever find it again. So before I throw more money at it I am curious as to why you are switching to performax.

$450 seems really high. I found a guy who was getting out of woodworking to support his car hobby and got a steal at$50. From my research $75-$125 depending on the condition seems about right for second hand.

i got mine for $225 and believe that $75 to $125 is too low a range. $200 to $300 is the usual range i’ve seen them for in my area (NYC tristate area).
