    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Well to buy the package new it looks like it over 5K
    The lathe is on sale for $4,045.00
    The duplicator is on sale for $801.00
    router bracket $71.00
    set of knives $171.00
    total $5,088.00
    50% of that $2,544.00
    Going on the 50% rule $2,250.00 in my book is a good deal
    But I don't know what it cost in 04 when he got it so that number could be high.
    That is one of the hard things about the 50% rule. Is finding out what it cost new. Not what they sell for now. Looked at a BS a while back the guy wanted 50% of the new today price. Come to find out when he bought it new. It cost $50.00 bucks less than what he was asking.
