I had some limited experience with one 24 years ago John. I was impressed by 
it's versatility but disappointed in it's attitude. It was trouble all the 
time. That may have been because of it's history, which I wasn't familiar 
with but it did not run dependably. It takes some strength to run it too. 
It's your call but I'd look for an opportunity to work with it a bit before 
buying it.
