Besides checking for making sure it turns on and runs, anything else I should be aware of before handing over the money? I always go into CL purchase with some skepticism, but this one seems to be a solid purchase.

I would be hoping that the seller turned it on and it didn’t run :) That would drop the price significantly, and 99.9% of the time, it’s a stupid simple fix. You would be amazed at some of the deals I’ve got because of a non-running motor, and every one of them was easily fixed, and without any additional cost.

Just check for broken/missing stuff. You can easily clean and paint stuff that you have, and it won’t cost you anything but time/effort. But finding missing/broken stuff can really start to bite you in the wallet quick, and that super deal might turn out to not be so super. Don’t worry about hard to crank hand wheels, crunchy bearings, rusty table top or other bits, etc… rust is easy to remove, and plan on replacing the bearings and belts at a minimum, along with a good clean, lube and alignment.
