  • Hegner Multimax 18in question

    I have an opportunity to purchase a used Hegner Multimax 18 for $300, retail for a new one looks like $1200+. Seems like a good deal to me, but I would like some second opinions. Looks a little rusty, good deal or not? Seller guarantees works great. I have attached a picture of the saw. Thanks.

    I had mine for about 12 years and still very satisfied.
    The price looks good. If some is wrong you can always get parts.
    Rust can be removed.

      Do you have a chance to give it a "test drive"? I don't see a quick release for the tension up front, but you can check with Advanced Machinery about whether that can be retrofitted. The price is a good one, if the machine won't need a lot of work. And if the rust is just surface, that shouldn't be a problem.

      Good luck!

        I agree with Carol and Mike...go for it. I have two Hegners and parts are easy to get and easy to install....I have used Hegners for about 10 years and really like them....$300 for a working model is a steal!!

          Thanks for the responses. I will be going to look at it tomorrow morning. I will be test driving it to make sure everything is in working order. Looks like a little rust removal and it will look pretty good too. thanks again

            I also would say ...go for it! Great deal and like the others said, it's easy to get some new parts , maybe like a quick clamp for the blades to make life easier...

              That is a deal! I paid $600 for a 1986 model Hegner just last year.

                New PC keyboard has an error
                by jim_mex
                Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.

                I chose one with really big blue illuminated...

                Re your upcoming retirement. I wasn't really looking forward to mine but to be honest, apart from being home based due to this darn virus, I've gotten accustomed to getting up in the morning and deciding what I...
