Larry if you decide to purchase a new machine . When you get the machine the first thing you do is pull the side spindle gearbox cover and inspect it. if the gear box has sand in it and the gears are not cleaned and bead blasted then send it back. It is not as advertized. Here is a picture of what it should look like if it is done properly. You will be paying a thousand dollars more for this service . This should include timkin bearings on both spindles also.
