Yeah, you should get a trained orangutan to run the
thing at that price.

I wonder what he would really take?

That machine is bigger than my shop.

I was considering calling him just to feign interest.

That’s mean though.

Usually with industrial machinery sellers have
assessed market value, even if asking price is
optimistic. In this case, apparently not.

I’d say it’s worth no more than $1000.

They are useful machines but wide belt sanders
have eclipsed them. Metal finishing shops use
stroke sanders too. I expect they are even
handier with metal than wood but that doesn’t
change the supply/demand pushing prices

They do take up a lot of space. Mine is outdoors
with a tin roof over it.

It looks like the seller has no idea what it is he’s selling and only relied on the the bad information ,no one in the right mind would ask $16000 for a $1000 tool .
