Default Good deal? Or pass it by?

Ok, local Craigslist ad ***link deleted8888(I'll post the link, but if that is verbotten, let me know and I'll just post the details).
Craftsman router table, with extensions, bits (ad says lots? 10? 100? who knows) and a 315.174700 Craftsman router (1.5 hp) to include a 'new in box' Craftsman sign routing kit.
$150 for all. Deal? No deal? I have a new (haven't even gotten my mcls bits in the mail yet) PC 892, but was thinking that if it's a good deal, I could mount one in the table and keep one for hand use.
All advice appreciated,
Russel

Not sure what happened to my first post.
I was asking for input on Craigslist router. Craftsman 315.174700, a craftsman table with wing extensions, a new Craftsman 'sign routing kit' and 'some router bits', package deal for $150.
Ijust bought my first router the other day and dont even have bits for ut yet, but was thinking that one could go in the table and one could be kept for benchtop use.

Not being in America I can't tell you whether it's a bargain or not, but what I can tell you with confidence is that the ideal situation is a router permanently in the table and a nice BIG PLUNGE router for hand held work. (preferably both routers should be powerful PLUNGE ones).

Hi Russell, your OP was held for moderation due to the link.

I have deleted the link and released the post.

The deal really depends on the condition of the items. Are they local enough for you to view them.

I figured that the link may have been the problem...no worries James.
I've passed on the deal, he's local, but I really don't need a table as I just mounted my PC in the table saw stand (keep reminding myself that we'll be moving again, sooner than I'd like), the bits are (from what I can see) cheap 1/4" shank, and the router is a little underpowered for the price.
I'll keep an eye out for a bargain priced 2+ hp plunge unit to keep for free-hand.
Thanks,
Russel
