Are any of you familiar with this faceting machine? We received one as a donation to my local club and are trying to figure out some sort of reserve price to put on it. It has 3 indexes, 5 8" laps and 5 6" laps, keyed dops and a transfer jig. The machine has adjustable speed. Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like prices range from a starting bid of around $150 to $1,000 and "Buy it Know" from $750 to $3,500 depending on what extras are offered with the machine.

Thanks a lot you guys! I found one similar on Ebay that sold for $810.00. It looks like the Alpha Taurus model, except the speed control is mounted in a different place.

Again, thank you!
