Over the past few days, I’ve been shopping around on Craigslist for a new Jointer. I actually ran across a great looking 8” Grizzly jointer but then I realized I really don’t have any room for it in my garage. My wife and I agreed that the garage must have enough room to allow one car to be parked in case of a hail storm (which is fairly common in Texas).
Well, today I was rethinking my shop. I’ve got this BIG Delta 46-715 14” lathe. Its a fantastic lathe but I never use it to its full capacity. So I’ve decided to sell it and scale back to a Midi lathe of some sort. That will free up all the floor space I need for an 8” jointer.
So my question to all of Lumberjockdom is, how much should I sell it for? I want the proceeds to go towards that new Midi. A review at NewWoodworker.com put the street price at $650. I can honestly state that this lathe is in outstanding condition. It has only been used for pens and other small turnings.
Oh, I’m keeping the Oneway chuck for the Midi Lathe.
Here’s a picture.
