« Part 9: Things to come this Winter Part 10 of Building the Shop series Part 11: Can't wait ANYMORE! »

Hey LJ’s!!!

Since I’ve started my shop back in March CL has been really good to me over the past couple months. I’ve bought my Ridgid Jointer ($175), my Dewalt 735 Planer ($375), and the INCRA 1000SE ($60) and everything was well taken care of, overall I’ve saved A LOT!!!! Those were all GREAT finds on CL’s until Saturday morning when I got on CL and saw a gentlemen selling his whole shop that was less than a year old.

He was selling:
Powermatic 1792000K Model PM 2000, 3-HP, 10” Cabinet Saw with a Forrest Woodworker II and a 10” x 80T Freud Diablo D1080X Carbide Ultra Finish Saw Blade.($1599)
Powermatic PM2800 1792800 18-Inch Variable Speed Drill Press. NEW, still unassembled. ($499)
Powermatic 1791216K Model PWBS-14CS Deluxe 14-Inch 1-3/4-Inch Woodworking Bandsaw with Bearing Guides, Lamp, and Chip Blower, 115/230-Volt 1 Phase, with Riser. ($499)
Powermatic 54A Deluxe 6-Inch Jointer with Quick-Set Knives. ($450)
Powermatic 1 3/4HP Dustcollector w/ clear hose, blast gates, etc. ($299)
Festool Kapex Dual bevel sliding compound miter saw with Festool Kapex Table ($799)
Delta 15” Planer ($599)

I was freaking out in front of the computer, telling myself that I found the mother LOAD!!!! If I would have found this in March, I would have bought all of it!!!!!!!

So, on with the CL store, I emailed the gentleman asking if he had any Jet Parallel clamps and that I’d be interested in purchasing them if he did. He called me back saying he had a couple Bessy’s and someone was coming at 3pm to look at them. I said ok, what else are you trying to sell that’s not listed on CL, the guys said, well I have this router table made by INCRA, do you know what that is?? I said YES!!!! go on! Well I have the LS 17” super system with the table, stand, switch, and the INCRA II router lift with the 7518 Porter Cable router in it. I said HOW MUCH? $599, I said i’m in my car right now headed your way!!!

I also picked up a brand new never used Freud 13 piece router set. ($100)


I also got in my Wixsy 6” Digital Calipers in from Amazon today

Very nice collection you’re growing. I see you’re from Edmond. Broken Arrow here… I don’t seem to see much interesting stuff on the Tulsa CL… maybe I need to check the OKC CL from time to time.

Lance, it sounds like you got some good deals. And those are great prices on the other tools as well. They won’t last long at these prices.

You should have bought everything he had for those great prices. You could have kept what you wanted and sold the rest for a profit that could have paid for what you kept.
Years ago around 1975 I came across a similar deal in the newspaper (way before the days of Craigslist) and I bought a 1947 Unisaw, delta shaper, Delta 14” bandsaw, delta Radial Saw, miter saw and more small hand tools, clamps and power tools that I can remember. I bought it all for $1200. Most of these tools were made back in the 1940’s and 1950’s… Best deal I ever had in my entire life. I kept most all of it and sold the shaper. Had it all until Katrina flood destroyed it all in 2005. Did he say why he was selling all this great stuff so cheap and only having it for such a short time?

Great score on the tools. If you haven’t used an Incra system before you are in for a treat.Works good.
I never find anything like this I’m a buy high sell low person. If it was raining soup I’d be on the other side of the street with a fork!

I love my Incra LS, mine is mounted to my slef built router table though. It takes a little practice getting started, but after you get going the end result is worth it. Just take your time learning how to use it because it does get a little frustrating some times.

Lance Now everyone is going to hate you! LOL Great find. Beware,I’m now going to start haunting OKC Craigs as we never seem to have great finds like that in Tulsa. I am very sorry that the former owner is fighting cancer. I’ve been there and he will be in my prayers. Andy
