In my area they now going for over a $1000 in fair condition, ones that are near mint 12 to 15 hundred. That one shown here could get $600! I would buy it for $300 and use it as is…......

Thanks unbob. That’s what I see here too. There is a 5hp 3ph listed on CL near me right now for $1599. As to your final point…I’m with ya. I just don’t know if I can go down in the basement and use the dang thing with it looking like that knowing what it could/should look like. Even so, the point is valid; its a usable PM66. To complicate things, I have to buy a fence for my Craftsman 113 for it to be satisfying to use. Same is true for the PM66. Either way I’m spending an additional $300+ before I can start having fun with it. I have no real $$ in the Craftsman so essentially I could have a $300 Craftsman or a $600 PM66. Hmmmm.
