It sold for like $600, Wayne. Painful. These IRS auctions are ridiculous. My work doesn’t command a massive jointer but there’s just something about one….

When you’re looking through workshop pics and you spot a 12” jointer, you no longer wonder whether the guy is serious or not;)

well i dont have many large wood tools however i have used some monsters when i was training to be a welder.

here is a 1980 Cincinnati hydraulic metal shear. one of these brand new costs $500,000. it can cut a piece of steel 4 ft wide and 3/8 thick and it has such an impact when using it that the ground shook when we cut metal that big. i have no idea how heavy it is but i do know it has to have its own foundation in the shop so it will not damage the building

the next one is the vertical bandsaw we used which was donated to the school by boeing. it can can cut steel up to 6 inches thick! one of these new is 100k. because it is in a school it is usually in a state of disrepair from all the “student-izing” but when it is fixed it works very well. i dont have a pic of the one i used but this is the same model:

there are others that i have used but unfortunately i dont have pics of them

When I was in the yards, the cranes were used for everything except picking up a ship. They moved the ship into the submerged drydock and raised the drydock up. When the ship gets near the raising drydock bottom, there are blocks put under the hull so there is no buckling of the ship. Watched them do this, it was incredible, the ship slowy came out of the water. My ship was an LPD, roughly half the size of a carrier at the time. When left the yards we had to sail under the Chesapeake Bay Bridge – at low tide we had bearly 6” clearance and we ballasted down to give the ship extra room, we needed it. The signal bridge was 6 stories above the water.

The Nimitz class carriers are about 100,000 tons. Lift capacity on the individual cranes is 300 tons. I’m skeptical.

If you watch Mythbusters, they use a drydock for several of their myths. One episode was a duct tape bridge, they used this because they had access to the crane to keep them from falling if the “bridge” gave way – it held up.

To see how this works – in this they have a cruise ship, they show it several minutes in being raised up—
