    It is a good idea to clean your REO also. You can soak it in water with dish soap. Take the bottle off and let the water go up through the connector. You can also remove the o-ring in the cap to clean.


    Stand up and be counted:
    REO ROLL CALL

    A thousand times, yes! The last classies purchase I made was for my white whale.. A mini Woodvil in walnut/zebra to match a regular Woodvil I have. Upon arrival, I found a mess.. Including the negative wire completely missing from the switch. (Not unattached.. missing).

    After a quick trip to Maine for the little guy, Robert hooked me up.

    Needless to say, my last classies purchase will most likely be my last classies purchase.

    Watch rob's video on rebuilding the reo. I received my reo from the classifieds not working as well (was aware of one of the issues when purchased), and rebuilt the whole thing in around 20 minutes.

    I am not mechanically inclined at all....not even a little, and the rebuild was a snap. From what i hear Rob will fix it and send it back to you working as if it was brand new, but do not be scared of a rebuild yourself.

    Personally I would never buy a used mod unless I new the person was honest and clean . I get mods in the shop all the time people trying to save a few bucks so they buy a used mods . Only to end up spending full price for a used and abused mod

    I have with lots of pics, and even then it has to be cheap enough that with a rebuild I come in more than a few dollars less than new. I've also gotten really lucky compared to stories I hear. One I saw...new door, so it looked great in one pic. When I got more, it had obviously been the gravel road tester.

    Yeah, much as I love mine simply because it's my first Reo, it wouldn't have been very much more to get a new, clean one with the extra parts they come with. It arrived not only dirty but with a partially filled bottle of juice - I mean, really? But it introduced me to Reoville, and for that I'm grateful. And I'm in love with my brand new RM2

    Unless it's out of production or the savings are good, it's better to support the maker directly and buy new.

    I agree - however, it has to be good for him to have the demand of a used market (at such a high price too)- word gets around, people eventually come to him for another one, etc., etc!

    Well said, and that's a good point.
