Went to an auction recently. I didn't really know anything about this when I found it. I had been wanting a disk sander for a while and saw this edge sander among a bunch of Powermatic tools and though it would be a handy item if it didn't go to high. To my surprise it stalled at about $25 so I started bidding. I ended up buying it for $35 ...well $41 after all the fee's. I felt it was well worth that much for the 3/4 hp Dayton motor on it if nothing else. Plus I knew it would very handy in the shop. The tables are in sad shape but otherwise it's in good shape.
After I got it home I found out I had a desirable and pricey ACME sander. Because of the paint on it I couldn't even read the name tag. Found one of the fellows on OWWM had one that was basically worn out and sold it for $100. $250 up was considered a fair price for a used one. Seems I did a lot better than I realized at the time.
After finding that out I decided to tear this one apart and clean and repaint it.
