The biggest downer of buying a used machine is there is no transfer of the warranty.

It takes time to learn to repair the machines and sometimes require expensive parts. A out of warranty trip to LHR posted this week was $175 shipping each way and $300.00 in parts.

In my opinion for a first machine you are better off buying a new machine with a warranty.

I have 2 additional machines purchased broken and since I know how to repair them then no costly trip to LHR.

A Used machine at $500.00 to $700.00 is a good deal, any more and you might have well bought a new machine.

As for this auction? Looks like a LHR Connection? They are a little light on warranty details? A call to LHR and ask about this auction and warranty coverage. I am not sure what recertified is?

I would ask the vendor...

Does the unit have the new Z Bundle?
Does the unit have the new Motor Magnet retainer?
Is the $75.00 Flex Shaft NEW?
Are the Sand Paper Belts new?

I think this guy offers an extended warrenty for about 50.00. I do thank you for your input I need all I can get. Thanks Mark
