Went to a “pre” yard sale today and picked up a few items, but this I couldn’t let pass by.

It’s all there except the drive belts and should probably be cleaned and re-lubricated. It came with bits, face plate, live and dead centers, vise, well pretty much everything in the picture and the original case with another major piece of which I am not sure of (yet). The other thing I’m not sure of yet is what I’m going to do with it.

In addition, I picked up on an old Wood/Iron plane,

a few piloted router bits (un-used),

a power hand planer, and a small bench vise.

The whole kit-n-kaboodle for $35. I’m starting to feel a bit guilty. Think I will return and make a donation.

Everybody deserves a little good luck and you have certainly got your fair share with these bargains. Congratulations!

I have always wanted a Unimat … the older version as the newer ones are really bad.

I was having a difficult time sleeping. I returned and made an additional contribution. It’s a Catholic thing I suppose

Now I can’t hate you.

Well played my friend. Well played.
