Anyone have an idea of what one of these might be worth? Supposed to be in working order but from the looks of the machine in pics probably needs a pretty good overhaul. Value after refurbishing?

thanks to all who share their knowledge on HB

2 groups sell for less since they are to big for most home owners, pros don't want their business to depend on old stuff and there are more 2 group than one group machines.

sounds like it would not make sense to buy at $500-$600 if needs work. Unless, I end up keeping it for myself. Size is probably a problem since home and work space is big but not unlimited. Thanks
