I found a "Shoptask 1720" in the local paper for a very good price. He has had the motors re-wound and it is less than half of what the wholesale tool unit is, and they look the same.
My question is the tooling in the mill, the owner says it is not R-8. But the WT unit is R-8, so if it turns out to be a MT will I be able to find tooling for it? I dont expect to much for this little machine, but I dont want to buy somthing I cant use. (not that I know how yet)
