I’ve had a few really good auction deals this year. I bought a nearly complete 1966 Unisaw for $65. It’s missing a blade guard and I had to deal with a lot of surface rust but everything is in great working order.

At another auction I upgraded the old 30ish” Unisaw fence for a newer 52” Unifence for $75.

I won a 4’x8’x3” thick slab of laminated maple for $2. That will make a great workbench.

I ran into a huge lot of clamps. They auctioned them off by choice and I got 10 Bessey K-body clamps for $9 each. The rest of the 20 or so clamps were assorted pipe, F style bar and one handed Quick-Grip and Bessey clamps. I bought those for $100.

I bought a 5’x5’ maple-topped workbench for $20. It included 2 heavy duty metal vices.

I spent $220, overspending by my standards, for a Powermatic 8” model 50 jointer.

Radial Arm saw $20. Another lot of 30 assorted smaller clamps $15. 50# of boxed wood screws $5. A large box with 30 or so drawer glides $25….

I love auctions!
