« Part 19: You can never have enough clamps... Part 20 of How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? series Part 21: A Couple More Vintage Delta Machines »

I have sold the rest of the Delta Scroll & Band Saw parts as well as the Delta RAS for another $400. I was at $2365 but spent another $70 at Paul’s (see the last blog posting) on some very nice wood and a couple more clamps and things so my total dropped to $2295 plus the $400 makes it $2695. I had a friend call me today who restores old Delta machines. Looks like he’s low on cash for another project and he wants’ to sell me a couple Delta 1460 wood lathes, Should have more on this tomorrow if the price is right. I also might have another band saw in the works if everything goes well. Keeping my eye on the big picture… Oops I almost forgot, My Daughters got me a Ridged Oscillating Sander for Fathers Day :)

At this rate you will be able to buy a new tablesaw from whoever you want.

Thank you for your service to our country.

It’s hard to believe that someone who began their career in the Navy two years after I retired has finished up that career…
