The one I bought for $300 was from an ad from a guy in Tacoma who was asking $1000.  After many email he agreed to the price of $300.  He even delivered it for $50. The blades are stainless and perfect and the case is rust free and the unit is complete with the cover and the built in tamper.  I have run about 1000lbs of clay through it since I have had it.  The only three things that are not perfect.  The piano hinge for the top is broken, which does not affect operation since I just lift it off and place it back in the original open position.  The second is the spider bushing on the drive line has a couple of bulging area so will need to be replaced at some point however still is working fine now.  The last thing is the only real problem and that is the on/off switch.  It has a built in circuit breaker and that is starting to go bad.  It takes a couple of on/off flicks until it "catches" and stays on.  I am sure I can replace the bushing and the switch easily, but have not gotten around to it.  The hinge will just be the way it is, I have no desire to repair that.

I have one, and used it just yesterday.  Pres is right, that the reverse toggle is in the box with the key.  I suppose if people wanted to remove the key they would remove the reverse as well.  The key is really sticky, but a simple internal toggle, not sure why someone would remove it.


You have to run it reverse or mixing mode, so I would suggest rewiring that back in.
