What do you want to know about it? It has the same motor and basic layout as the 300 Compact. It is regeared and has a larger spindle and chucks to handle the 3" capacity. The toolset (carriage, cutter, reamer) is similar to the 300 Compact and 1822's tools, just resized for the extra capacity.
For the smaller pipe sizes (1/2"-3/4" and 1"-2") you can use an 811 or 815 die heads. The 728 is specific to the 1233, though, for 2-1/2"-3".
I kind of like it, but I'm biased. It was my first threading machine.
