This machine has been on my shopping list for a number of years, and luckily, I've always run into them when cash was limited. I happened to see this one on eBay listed by a lumber yard in Freehold, NJ, just 20 miles from here. In addition to apearing to be well maintained and complete, the borer sold for a wee bit over $200.... about 8 times lower than the last place I had seen a used one.

I picked the machine up on a Friday night and had it taken apart, repainted, and running again by lunch-time on Sunday.
