    I keep getting emails from Mytee on there $500.00 floor buffer clearance sale "get it before it's gone" Sounds to me there trying to unload some lousy machines...Does he make those floor buffers for less than $50? Just curious?

    I thought they were Chineese imports. ???

    $500.00 sounds cheap if they last.

    Its a 300 rpm buffer, would be serious stress on a 1.5 hp motor. Probably only used on smooth floors, as I see no capacitors.

    Richard is sourcing materials to build an aircraft or Two, he can probably throw a swing Machine together in no time for you for 250.

    Just call him and order it from him, let me know if you need his number.

    Back rooms of brick and mortar stores have a ton of them, good ones from 30 years ago. I've snagged 'em cheap.
