    I would be very cautious looking for this type of machine used.

    Repo, bankrupt auction? You may be OK. If it's a trade in sitting at a used dealer facility???

    Typically, these things are ridden hard and put away wet. Barfed, automated, multiple shifts sometimes 24/7. Spindles always turning.

    Look at it this way. Don't think some shop owner said "You know, I made a lot of money with this machine. Time to pass my good fortune to somebody else."
