Thanks all. Interesting replies.

I do not believe the Jet 1640 had a Reeve drive (the 14” model does, one reason I’m not looking at it), I have seen a number of things recommending to avoid this type of set-up.

I have been looking at Craigslist for a few months, and haven’t seen anything decent come up; mostly overpriced old junk.

I get the attraction with Grizzly, but I don’t think I want to go that route again after my last experience with them.

Jim, I did see your review and really appreciated you posting it. It’s one of the reasons the Galaxi is on my list.
