Esteem 2x72" grinder for sale (variable drive)

Hey guys, I purchased a nice new variable drive Esteem grinder from Brett back in may. I was having some medical issues and built a grinding table I could use while sitting. Since then I have gone way down hill and am unable to walk most days so it is with deep regret I must sell. So, Up for sale is an almost new (3 months old, less then 50 hours of use) Esteem 2x72" belt grinder. I bought all the bells and whistles. It includes:
- Grinder, base and motor
- flat platen with its own tool arm
- 8" contact wheel with its own tool arm
- small wheel attachment with 1/4" small wheel, and its own tool arm
- work rest
- kbac variable drive controller 110v or 220v (I think its 1.5hp@110 or 3hp@220)
- custom made knife grinding jig (can be used with flat platen or wheel, cost me $350)
- 10 to 20 belts ranging from new to very used
The only bad part is that I am physically unable to ship, So will have to picked up in Cincinnati Oh.
I paid right around $2500 for everything, I am asking $1800.

Price reduced !!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I am not getting any response at all so I am going to lower the price. I have $2500 invested, anyone that is familiar with Brett Mathews or Esteem grinders knows these are some of the most solid grinders made. I am lowering price to $1600 or best offer within reason. I'm kind of amazed that I am not getting any response...

I think your price and machine are well with in reason.
Wish I could take it off your hands, just out of my reach for now.
Best of luck !! I am sure that you will get many offers soon.

Grinder

Definitely not the price. Too far for me to drive from Ca to Oh. If I was still living in Il I'd be at your door 1st thing tomorrow morning. BTW, sorry to hear about your health problems. My wife has quite a few & her problems have put into perspective the real blessings in life. I whole heartedly wish you all the best.
Mike
PS. The only bad part if I had this machine is that I could no longer blame my lousy knife making skills on the "bad equiptment" I have to work with.

Thank you for your well wishes. You take your health and walking for granite until you can't. Lesson i'm learning, but again, thanks for your well wishes.

My pictures may not give Bretts workmanship the attention it deserves. please check out Bretts website for great specs pictures.

I have had my grinder listed for a week and I am not getting much interest. I have spoken to my brother who is willing to come in and help me dismantle and ship if anyone is interested purchasing. So the price will be $1600 plus shipping. I am guessing it to be in the 150-200 range to ship. You are still getting a very good deal.
