Aspei, I don't know how your shop is set up, but remember, some of that great priced (cheap) equipment is generally 3 phase motors. If you are not set up for 3 phase, getting it converted will spend all of the savings and probably more. I have bought things sight unseen from online auctions. I set my price I would pay for that item and if I am only looking at it via their pictures, I cut my price by a 1/3. Then when the dust settles, if I have bought it, it is mine and I have no one to blame. Larry was with me one day when I picked up a three wheeled electric truck for my wife to drive around our yard when she was still on crutches. It worked out. Good luck.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
