Looks like a pretty good deal - I'd definitely go look at it if I were
in the market for a DP. See if you can get an idea of runout, whether
it makes any funny noises, etc. If all that's OK, I'd say offer $150
for the heck of it, but then go for it.

It looks like mine which I've had for over 25 years and it suits me
just fine. It had a few warts which I've taken care of and others
which I just work around. Mine is model #113.213150. This is
on a plate at the rear of the head casting (behind the motor).
Things to watch for:
1. Check the chuck for runout. Mine was fine from the factory.
2. As manufactured it had a ton of quill slop. To test, lower the quill
about 1/2 way and try to move the chuck front & back with your
hand. Less if better, up to the point it causes the quill to bind.
This is easily fixable and I'll share if you need the info.
3. The 3 handles which lower the quill kept loosening and eventually
screwed themselves into the hollow cavity of the hub. Another
easy fix if you need it.
4. The table is a royal bitch to get level, but once there it is rock stable.
I never tilt mine anymore and just use a jig if I need to tilt.
5. The depth stop is a rotating ring on the quill handle. I never had
any trouble with mine but others have.
6. The front plate states 1 HP max developed. The motor plate says
120V and 8A. The real HP is probably more like 3/4.
I hope this helps and if you need my fixes send me an email at
