I don't have one, but there are a bunch out there!

Caveat emptor,. Lots of plastic parts. You might also consider a legacy 900 ornamental mill.

Mike, I am not sure that you received my PM second reply to your reply. I said Ok and stated that I replaced a pulley wheel on mine once using a wheel that I picked up at Lowes, and it worked fine.

Am I right that there are actually 2 cable spools for this thing? I have one, really like the thing, But I only get about 2/3rds travel on the rails due to the limits of the spool. I'd really like to be able to take advantage of the entire length of the rails.

Not the entire length, you can see hose clamps on the one top rail at each end so it doesn't crash into things. Also the router bit is limited by the amount of plate on each side. Hope that makes sense. I can take pictures with a ruler to show that if it is of value.
