Bought this off the New Hampshire Craig's List. Not a "You Suck" price, but fair. It came with parts for three spindle cartridges - all with bad bearings. I knew this when I bought it. I had Richard rebuild two of them. One is a standard quill type that takes the 5/16", 1/2" and 3/4" spindles that came with it and the other is a fixed spindle 1". Richard did a wonderful job. I have spent many hours chasing the vibration out of it and finally found three sources. One was the spinner on the hand wheel, a spring washer fixed this. The second was the motor mount being loose on the shaft, two 1/4" set screws fixed this. The third was the fork on the hew rod, a 1/4" nylon screw fixed this one. Now it is as smooth as silk. It has both dust doors and a new 2 hp Baldor motor and the adjustable fence.
