Hi I found this in a somewhat local craigslist ad and was wondering if you lever heads know anything about it.  I know Wegas make good commercial semi autos but what about levers?  Approx value of the machine if its in good running order?  I'd snap this up first but its a 7 hour drive one way for me just to see it.  

My dream upgrade right now would be a Londinium.  How might this compare?  I currently own a VBM Superdomo and Elektra Mcal.

Personally with your current set up I don't see a 7 hr drive being worth it.  I have come accross other Wega machines and they aren't cheap.  How much is this seller asking?

Asking is $900 but comes with what looks to be a good condition but old Super Jolly. Apparently both machines have been overhauled but havent been used for a year since being stored.

I was seriously considering this machine but just can't bring myself to pull the trigger.  Yes, just three or four hour drive for me but I'm just not loving it.
