Olde Tyme Nut Butter Grinder

Hey, Bulk Co-operators,

How long will an Olde Tyme P2 nut butter grinder live, in usual co-op conditions?  We bought two second (or more) hand ones, both P1 models.  After a year of use, the one with almond butter stock is stuttering, and ruining electrical outlets.  I did not know that almonds should be run in the P2 model.  I am considering having a new P2 motor put into it.  Any opinions, knowledge, ideas, please?

 

Thanks,

Ellen "Dr. Bulk" Anthony
