    $1000 for all 35? Sign me up!

    No way would I pay $1000 for a non running unit.

    Running and welding? If I really needed it and it was in decent shape.

    So he's going to custom build you a non-running SA200 from a bunch of other non-running machines?

    Did they work and look like that when you bought them for that price, or did they need some love to get them looking that beautiful?

    Just a little TLC! The Red Face didn't weld, but took me about 15-minutes to get it to weld.

    $500, and not welding or running he knows it. He's probably got those machines all five minutes away from welding and running anyway. Tell him that you will wait and watch and if he gets one up and going for you you'll give him a thousand.

    No way in hell.

    He knows what their worth & prolly doesn't have very much in any of the non running ones, or even the running ones for that matter. It sounds kinda crappy, but if you're in the resale biz & you can't get non running machines cheap & sell them at a good profit, you're not gonna make any money.

    I sell refurbished Maxtrons with a warranty for around $1800 & up. On average, I pay maybe $200 at the very most for a dead machine. I like to pay less, being if the board is toast, it's the most expensive part to find for one. The rest of the parts are pretty available & cheap if you know where to look for them.

    I decline to sell anything unless its refurbished with a warranty. The parts are more valuable to me to build working machines out of than what little ill get selling one to a guy for cheap as a non working machine.
    Very true Steve, that's how business works. Me personally I would call the guy and tell him i'll be there tomorrow with a grand in my pocket. Can you have a redface running for me. If so sold. I like to make money as well as spend it, and so does everybody else. So you can keep looting around looking to get that killer deal from a old persons family member that past away, or do what you gotta do and be done. What's your time worth!

    OK then. $1500 would be taking advantage if him. If he's got $1200 for two photos he can surely come up with another $300 for the privilege of being taken advantage of.

    Duane he will not budge, trust me. I gave him the ultimate deal a while back, and just reoffered it, and he is not budging! And trust me, I was playing hardball. In the long run I would have lost with my offer and he knew it! You are definitely not a easy man to do business with CEP!
