    Got one here now that is new unused and it looks ground and very smooth. Not polished mirror finish but very smooth. Never had any trouble with tapers or runout on any i've bought. They certainly match or beat any router I've used.
    Here's some pics taken with my phone so not best quality.

    That looks much better than the one I just got. My Porter Cable routers have much smoother tapers.
    I'll post a picture when I get home from work.

    After taking a closer look today, the taper is actually better than I thought. I took this with my camera in macro mode, so it shows things you don't really see with the naked eye.
    Running my finger inside the taper, it is actually not bad at all, and better than it looks. What it really needs is a thorough cleaning.
    I'm satisfied with the purchase, and will buy from this seller again.
