I appreciate it… bit of a drive from FL though… The guy just said he’d take $500 for it… Might be worth it as a starter one.. Then sell it down the road if I need an upgrade…


Hey Rich I’m serious if you wanna give it a go, try mine. I’m in Indiana

I was a hobbyist too when I was using it. Seemed like no matter how light of pass I took, the motor breaker tripped. Eventually it needed rewound. It also seemed like it needed adjusting with ever use.

If you try to flatten cutting boards, I think you will be disappointed.

If you willing to spend 1200, your not that far away from a grizzly double drum. I know that reviews are mixed on that machine, but it has a 5hp motor. The 1632 and it are not even in the same stratosphere when it comes to power.
