Martin its got some age on it for sure, but I am only a 1 man shop and don't use these machines on a daily basis or even weekly. I might use it once every 3 or 4 months. I have shut down my shop and that is why I am selling it. I still have the Woodmaster planer/sander that I can still use when needed. I haven't done a job to use this thing in over 4+ years.
