I found this Fratelli Alberti skiving machine that comes without motor and table at a very low price. Do you it's worth getting it?

Depends on the price and convenience. 5 minutes down the road for €20, sure. It'd be worth it for the experience alone, I have spare motors knocking about and I love tinkering. However I'd be dubious about the condition of the machine due to the evident rust. If that's on the surface, what abuses lurk beneath?

Looks like a water line on the arm... like it had been underwater for some time, resulting in the rust.  All things are relative.  What would be "a very low price?"

From the looks of the rust on that I wouldn't pay More than $10 for it for parts and possibly not even that much. I'd have to see it in person

Hi, Are you willing to spend time taking all the rust off?? Most times it is surface rust only, but you never know? And as YinTx said what is a very low price?? If you could ask for more pictures just in case parts are missing. Also to see if there is rust underneath as well?? It is possibly missing the arm where the feed roller goes??

This arm looks like it could be missing? You can buy them cheap from china but i do not know if it would fit?
