If it wasn't 3 phase, I'd bet someone else would have bid on it. I was actually glad it was for that reason. I'll wait to get it to see if I'm going to get another motor, or VFD. I'm leaning towards another motor, but want to see the mount first. He says it needs new guides. Carter guides for it are cheaper than the set they sell for 14" saws, but there again, I'll wait and see if it just needs a new thrust bearing or something. For what it went for, and the return it will make for me, I can afford to put some more back in it. I just hope it doesn't have a cracked wheel or something major. It won't be the first or last six hundred bucks I've thrown a\way, but at ten percent cost of a new one, it seems like it's worth the gamble.
