  1. I appreciate it. I will at the very least clean off the outside, but I'm going to try to use the condition as a negotiating point. Also, it's part of an estate sale, so I don't know how much they will move. The ducting is definitely a "maybe" for me. I know it's high quality and a deal, but I don't know if I want to lock myself in and I don't know if I have the budget for it now. I appreciate the vote of confidence. The drive is 2 hours one way, so I'm just trying to make sure it is worth it. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the response Jussi! Yeah, the Nordfab pieces are definitely something of a surprise on this package. I don't know if my budget can handle it, even if I know what a deal it is. I'm trying not to spend too much on the startup and setup of my shop, but this is definitely an enticing deal. As for the collector, it looks like it will be a good deal either way, but I want to make sure it has everything with it. I will be having to buy new filters, which will be about $600 on top of whatever I pay for the unit. I'm going to try to get it. If it had the filters, I would get it no question. Thanks for the advice!
  3. Thanks so much for the reply! I don't really care about the looks, as long as the function won't be affected! I'm trying not to overspend early in building up my shop, but this is almost like a jewel! Ricky
  4. Thanks Robby! Will it be easy to spot wear on the inside? I think it might be because it is a hard plastic. Ricky
  5. I have the chance to purchase a used CV1800. It has been used in a knife grinding setup with 6 grinding stations. The owner indicated that it was used for wood and some composites, along with being used for the buffers. Also, he does not have the stack WYNN filters, which I would want. I also have the opportunity to buy the Nordfab ducting for it. I will be using it in my one-car garage woodshop. I would love some advice on the following (pictures attached) Should I worry that composites and metal dust went through it? Does it affect the impeller or motor differently? From the picture of the cyclone, would it be easy to clean and get it back to a clean or “clear” look? He will separate the ducting and the collector, but should I get the ducting even if it’s not set up for my space? Would this be a better buy USED than a less powerful NEW system? It is my first DC system and I love the CV1800. Is it too risky to buy this one used? Thank you in advance and any advice on any of these points will be greatly appreciated! Ricky
