Wahoo !!
All the watching and waiting has finally paid off.
This is what I found on Craigslist search in Massachuesetts-

GRIZZLY 24”DRUM SANDER G1066
Photobucket

This is the actual machine-

Photobucket

The Grizzly Price: $1,495.00
The Craigslist Price: $ 850.00

I think this is an awesome deal, it is a well cared for unit, though he said he has used it quite a bit. He replaced it with a Performax 22-44 drum sander as it is a bit more delicate in it’s working, he makes guitars.

I am picking it up Sunday…..I can’t wait !!

No need to build one now : ) SWEET !!

ahhh!!!! I am so jealous. The craigslist in the montreal area looks like people are trying to MAKE money on their resells….

I’ve abandoned it, and look at a french site that seems to be populated by folks with a reasonable outlook.

Great score.

great deal! i never find any deals on craigs i always find stuff quicker on ebay then get into bidding wars with everyone and most of the stuff others pay full price it’s crazy. Well i guess some people have all the luck! ;)

A drum sander will definitely change your woodworking experience, particularly with the belt feed. I am excited for you.

Nice score, Lisa. I watch CL every day and have yet to come across a find such as you have. Enjoy the new sander.
