Default Good deal for lampworking equipment?

Hi everyone,

So, to begin, I've wanted to get into lampworking for years. I finally finished college about a year ago and decided that I would go ahead and buy some equipment. I've done quite a bit of metal sculpture in the past, so I'm not entirely new to the whole art thing, though I understand that it's an entirely different process. My question is this. I found someone selling their entire setup on facebook and I'm thinking that I might like to purchase it. The problem is that I don't know how much to offer them. They said $2,000 or best offer but that sounds a little high to me. What do you guys think?

Here's a list of the equipment.
-Jen-Ken Kiln Chili Pepper with operating manuel (serial# 459
-Various grippers, tweezers, points, shapers, tools, etc
- 5 corks, various sizes
-Victor CutSkill propane regulator (model# (D250-15-510)
-Chicago Welding Oxygen Regulator (item# 94846)
-Nortel Machinery torch- Midrange Plus premix
-2 color guide charts, product magazine,
-Blow hose with adapter kit
-Many clear and colored glass rods, tubing, and powdered color
-3 specialty color tubes

They do have quite an assortment of glass, but not so much that it's overwhelming.

Any better alternatives? I plan to mostly make pendants, pipes, and do some occasional sculpture.
