    Robert, when I said good luck to all, that included you. The only thing I "implied" is you are a brand new member.

    It is not a PRS. It is an older PRT Alpha with direct drive motors. Still I think it's a very fair price for what it is. Good luck with it.

    To fit it through the 36 inch door you talked about, yes the gantry has to be off. If you are not mechanically inclined, hire a mechanic to take it apart and put it back together. Cutting off the...

    The prs is a large improvement over a prt. I have had both before. I think the prs is a better value. As for the size, that is up to you. Replacing the router with a spindle is something done by...

    You didn't listen, but it's your baby. Sell aspire for 1k, sell the trailer for 2k and the machine will sell easy for 8500. You end up with 11,5 and everyone is happy.
