**SOLD** Arbortech MIN400 Power Carving Tool / For sale or trade?

I came across a brand new Arbortech MIN400 wood grinder/sander on a deal that I couldn't pass on. I haven't really done any wood carving, let alone power carving (aside from relief work), so I am not sure I really need the thing. Anyone interested in buying/trading for this tool, let me know

New this tool retails for $250-260. Anyone interested? Lets talk.:thumbsup:

What are u interested in for a trade?
You know, I mostly threw the trade option in there for anyone else that might be sitting on something in a similar situation or just a tool seldom used with similar value. Sure, I think that Arboetech makes some really cool and unique tools, but that doesn't mean I am going to use it. I would much rather that someone else end up with it who it will be more suited toward.

What are some things I'd be interested in? I don't know really. Let me try and explain what I have and what I make.

I am a flat worker (now). Here are some basics of the tools that I have and frequent:
Craftsman 113.x TS
Bosch 1617 ESVPK Router
Incra LS Super System 17"
Porter Cable PC600JS Jigsaw
1/4 Sander (Generic)
B&D Cordless 18v Drill
Milwaukee 1/2" Corded Drill
Delta 6"/4" Disc/Belt Sander
B&D Variable Speed Rotary tool
Small fleet of hand planes from fore plane to block plane
Stanley & WoodRiver chisels
Disston Crosscut Saw
Unkn make hard back crosscut saw
Deer Brand Dovetail saw
Stanley coping saw
Mallets (various, including 12oz brass, 8" turned maple, basher from Tommie Hockett, even bigger basher in the works :) )
Workmate
Various marking and layout tools (mortising gauge, marking knife, squares, ...)
...etc (I'm drawing a blank at what else is out there!)

Like I said, right now I am a flat worker. I am interested in furniture building, though most of what I've been making has been stuff for my shop.



The tool is new in box with the original accessories included. It is a 710w angle grinder with the belt drive installed. There are 50mm mini grinding blades included, as well as 40/60/80/120 sanding disks (1 each). There is also an instructional DVD in the box. Enough with the words, here are the pictures:
