        That’s probably about priced as scrap. Anyone know what that things weighs?

            No experience with a G&E, but this unit sure does appear to be all there and then some. The Cincinnati brings back some fond memories. Grab hold of that clutch handle and it feels like you've got the power of a locomotive in your hand.

            Shapers.....You can make anything but money with one....Truer in today's computerized world than ever before. That said, if you've the space available and the wherewithal to move it, picking up what looks to be a complete machine for probably scrap price does provide a fun "toy" to play with for short money.

                    He thinks that the Cinci will bring him a lot more? Fantasizing I think - at 16" the G&E is at the very top end of what most hobbyists would want. 24" is well over top.

                      Condition is a factor...

                      I'd take the 24" over the G&E for that reason. G&E is bound to be full of problems, or at least a few. Nearly all machines that age have at least some. Cinci looks ready to run, or put in the livingroom, your choice.

                        I bought an identical one for half the cost a few years back and asked on the forum here about the weight. When I got it home I weighed it and its 50 pounds shy of 4500. But mine is missing the tray under the ram at the rear. Plus this one has that custom chip pan fabrication on the front so I think it probably hits the 4500 pound mark as shown.

                        Best wishes to ya’ll.

                        Sincerely,

                          I'm sure Fasttrack gets some PTSD seeing that already half crumbling pallet.
