    Looks like the 1220vs Varible speed that retails for more than 400.00. Offer 200.00 and maybe he'll bite. You can get extentions for it But the head does not slide or rotate, so you are limited to 12" bowls, but very long spindles, with supports.

    I don't know. Looks more like a 10-14 mini VS to me. It does not have a swivel head.

    I wouldn't pay that much for it. Keep looking Dan.

    You might be right Tony. It IS the New version, in either case. It has a spindle lock.
