If you can't find a used one, you may be able to get a great deal on a "demo" machine at the WCAF. That's where I bought my machine and they included some wedges and other incentives to sweeten the deal. If there is a particular model you are after, a pre-emptive phone call may "reserve" the demo model you want to buy :).

Got it, now

Rob and John, Won the Hoffman. Now I need to order W1 bit (comes with breaker bar) and wedges.
What size of W1 do you use most? There are several too pick from. Anything else needed at this time?

Great!!! Welcome to the club! When placing your order, in addition to what you need, ask for a free "assortment" sample bag - but I find I use the taller versions the most. I rarely use the Hoffmann for mouldings that are easily v-nailable. Also, they have a digital depth gauge tool that is very helpful is setting up a new bit- but be forewarned, it is not as simple as you would think it will be and allow at least 20-30 minutes and a bunch of tests to get it right.
