Yep I own it. With buyers premium I'm in it for $300. I could have bought a decent brand new machine for that $.
Typical roverphile type purchase. Buy some old rusty broken ass item for more that you could buy a new version of something else for, because of its perceived potential.
That said its still a currently offered model so all parts are available and a quick google search shows its a $2900-$3k machine. Hopefully this tid bit from our Uncles trash can doesn't take a ton of time and money to get operational.
Upside is I have to go to Portsmouth so meeting Mark and Robert the Davis @ the Bier Garden is an automatic as is our usual. http://www.biergarden.com/

JL it says it heats the water to 100 degree's above input temp. Around here thats 57 or so degree's so not really that hot. But 157 degree water @ 3000 psi should remove everything but waxoyl- I hope.
