    Neat system, good price. The bottom plate is called an escutcheon plate. Todd Fischer/Fischer-Freitas claims to have both the escutcheon plate and the top available:

    Not sure if custom fabrication would be cheaper or not.

    I know that Todd did have the escutcheon plate available, as I got one from him a few years ago for mine. He also had some other parts, including a full reprint of the last revision of the manual.

    $1500 is a really good price. The board set is nice, too.

    I suppose that I'm not telling you anything new, but you should be able to get $1500 for that system on eBay, without breaking a sweat. It's admirable that you've made a good faith effort to have it go to someone here, but if you need to sell it, eBay is the place to go. You'll probably get nothing but watchers until the last few minutes of your 5 or 7 day auction, which will be frustrating, and it may take a re-post or two to get it done, but you will get it done. Alternatively, if you dare, set the starting price as low as you will risk, and watch it climb. Again, it will plateau, but then there will be a small frenzy at the end, just before the auction ends.

    Nice machine. Good luck.

    Yea ebay is not my favorite place have been burned twice by scamming buyers and ended up getting screwed pretty good. Not a great experience and have not wanted to use any more. So its kind of dire situation and need to sell this like yesterday . willing to take 1000 and then 500 next month if that helps anyone on the fence about it . just really need the money for an unexpected expense I wasnt quite prepared for. Just need 1000 and ill ship on good faith
