Over 10 years ago, (September 10, 2010), Nelson Timken, our founder, had a dream of a friendly machinist site, where people could learn the hobby of machining. We want to wish everyone a healthy, happy New Year, full of joy and success. God bless you, and thank you for supporting The Hobby-Machinist.
I would not buy it at all on eBay. First, contact the seller, who is local to you, and make an appointment to see it in person. Then vet it, make sure everything is there and works properly, and then talk pricing, without eBay getting their cut. He can cancel the ad. It does not come with much tooling, and I cannot see if all the change gears are present.
That is also a more honest way of doing business. However, I did not develop eBay's business model, they did. If there are ways to use their system to my advantage, I will take advantage of them. A goodly amount of money gets siphoned off between buyer and seller on eBay, and only eBay gains from that. YMMV.I sent them a message. Irvine is a bit of a drive, but doable. I'd rather talk on the phone, get more pictures and see what else it comes with.
We get it, advertisements are annoying!
