The very tip of the swich is broken off but the switch functions as it should. I was worried about getting a shock if your hands are sweaty and flipping the switch but that didn't happen.The stand to the machine is made in a peculiar way. It was meant to hold boxes or trays and was built to accomodate the operator. I started to cut the shelving out from under the stand to make it neater looking. For all I know, someone knows what it is for. This machine is solid and nice and still very useable. It is a cheap way to get into pipe threading. This machine has surface rust from our humidity but will clean up and with some paint would look very nice. I can also load this item on anything you send the way. I have the room to handle trucks. I estimate this machine weighs 350 lbs. I will wait on fastening it down. The pallet will be 36" W x 48" long and 48 high.
