I had for one for ages, and it served me well.

The main thing to look out for is that the top guides are intact, although spares are available through metabo.

Ohhhhh....just looked at the price. Forget it. Too, too expensive for a second hand one. I'd expect to pay 100-150 max.

Another odd thing...the cut depth should be about 7 1/4" not 4"...Odd that. May mean a faulty guide bracket.

Hi John

Andy has some good suggestions - I have an email from record Power advertising their spring show in April - 15th 16th.  It's Chesterfield so it would be a good day out.  They ,ay have a deal on at the show - perhaps worth a call.

Also have a word with Tony at the club and see if anyone has one for sale.

Personally, I'd like to look and feel before I buy. We have this for sale at our club, but you;d have to come down to Wilmslow to get it.

Good luck Dave
