That plus the "I will qualify buyers as they contact me" makes think he's expecting a stampede and is just trying to tone down the numbers . It can be amusing just sitting and watching the world go by with the want adsYes, he spend a lot of energy on the ad - single picture.
I don't speak for everybody, but I think most would rather buy a turn key machine shop in pristine working order, but are limited by budget to buy the cheaper machine that needs work, and are leveraging their skills and talents to recondition and bring it back to life, or do CNC convertions. I know that's what factors into almost all of my purchases. Boy would I love to just cut a cheque and have a full working shop dropped off at my door, so that I can make whatever I wish, whenever I want. A quick glance at my bank account tells me to keep dreaming lol. In a weird sort of way, I've grown rather fond of my path, and even when I have the money to buy new, am drawn to old junk that needs fixing for much cheaper. It's probably all the hits to the head I've taken over the years, Wear a helmet folks.
Anybody send him a message yet to see if they qualify?
