I used to have one. It’s good for about 6-8 months, then it won’t hold temperature correctly anymore. If you frequently open the back panel and clean the leaked hydrocolloid under tank, it might last longer. I didn't know about the leaking until it malfunctioned.

Thank you. Kinda what I thought... You get what you pay for!

Sure let me get some pictures, I was looking at it today its a Gelovit SLA. It looks like this one below, except the handle on the top is cracked, and it has a different screen at the bottom, I might try to replace the handle before I sell it. Like I said it was used to melt wax, Ive cleaned most of it out, but if youre interested I can take some pics of mine.

Not much wax left in there, some solvent should clean it out.
It’s a nice unit, new ones sell for $3000+.
Let me know if anyone is interested
