In this entry I thought I would begin to post a couple of adds that I would consider potential shop builders. I’ll try and cover a few different pieces of equipment. I’m just going to do a few searches for today and pull out what I would consider going to look at. I am not in any way saying these are the best deal out there or that the equipment is great, only that for someone starting out with a small budget could begin to assemble a shop in pretty short order and not have to starve the kids to do it.
old jointer with 3 phase motor—I do not know the condition of the motor as I have no way to test it—it is extreemly heavy $300.00
Comment: swap motor of vfd and you have a tool that you great grand kids can use
older Delta jointer, runs but do not know much about it $75
Comment: needs cleaning and paint, Id build a new base but again another 50 years in this tool
CRAFTSMAN RADIAL ARM SAW. 60S’ SEND PHONE NUMBER WILL MEET YOU TO SHOW.
Comment: These were listed as $60 it didnt specify for the pair or not but I’d bet they could be had for not more than $90 for the pair.
I hope this is helping someone.
