Just another thought.. given the age of the machine and the sellers lack of knowledge about it, you really should, at the very least, replace the arbor and motor bearings. They may be fine, but I doubt the current seller has done any maintenance to it and it’s cheap insurance that will prevent much more expensive repairs in the future should they be bad or marginal. Belts may also need to be replaced depending on their condition. Something to keep in mind as the cost of ownership never stops at the initial purchase price. If you are comfortable doing the work yourself, then you can save some cash.. but if not, be ready to pay dearly to have someone else do it for you :)

Cheers,
Brad
