It is two inches taller than me, several years older and weighs in at just under 500 lbs. I stalked craigslist (and every other place I could think of) for a very long time. Finally got this 18 inch bad boy in Lee Summit. Besides the old man’s grandson who hauled it out of his grand dad’s shop and stuck it in his garage, I believe I am only the second owner. It is in excellent condition, has all its parts and pieces intact. I spent some time this week cleaning and lubricating parts and pieces and have it ready for projects. I absolutely love it.
