found a jet 1642 used for $1900, deal or no?
i stumbled across a jet 1642 on craigslist last night. the description was, something like jet 1642, 2HP, bought for $2500 new, selling for 1900 or B/O. used for 6 months, everything that came with the lathe, goes with the lathe. i emailed her to find out why she was selling it, she had another kid and no longer had time for it and it has just been sitting and she'd rather see someone make use of it. she said she used it moderatly during the 6 months but no heavy usage. I was thinking of taking a look at it and possibly lowballing her for 1700, what do ya'll think? should i go after it?
