Well, I finially did it. Ordered a new 1642 EVS 1.5 hp from Woodsmith here in Des Moines. They were able to meet and beat the Amazon price and there was no shipping charge. Only took a week for it to get here. Jeff and I picked it up Saturday, put it together and I have turned some with it. It is really smooth. Pics included. And yes that is Jeff and I reading some of the instructions.
