"Amazing"

Hi Scott,
I have just disassembled my KE 280 in readiness to put in the new grinding belts. The inside is like new other than a little sign of wear on the pressure plates. When I gave it the once over I thought it was in brilliant condition for the amount of work it has done. You mentioned your website in your previous note and I thought a picture of my machine disassembled, even showing that tiny bit of wear on the pressure plates with pictures of the types of knives it has worked on will give potential buyers a realistic idea of what the KE 280 is capable of. Let me know if you are interested.
