    Default what is it worth

    local company interested in buying our 4x8 shopbot prs alpha with aspire. 3.504 (version 10 out now)with v carve pro, 2.2 spindle, drum dust collector, older computer and what ever bits we have.i was thinking it is worth $5,900. does that sound right?it has reset problem. i think it is the pendent. sometimes resets sometimes does not.i did the tests with multi meter and everything passed except i think the pendent. but not a expert. i think the router is about 15 years old not sure. mostly used for signfoam and color core with 1/4'' bit.thanks for any input.

    I think that is a little low. I would start at $11,000 and come down to $10,500 for all that.

    It's likely a PRT seeing as how it's 15 years old (at least the router is). A picture would answer that question.

    "signfoam and color core" Sounds like it should be in really great shape! That stuff cuts like butta! My machine is that old and I certainly wouldn't sell it that cheap, I like the 10 to 11 k suggestion and let them dicker ya' down some. Russ

    Well, without more information, a valuation is variable. Important stuff such as the date of manufacture, pictures of the control box and unit itself and the Z height would be useful.

    Completely agree with the above. There are so many potential variations that without good data and photos, there is too much left to ponder.
