Oliver 12” Jointer – If only I had the room…

Delta Table Saw Contractor type $150 – Not my cup of tea but a good starter saw for somebody

Delta 12” 33-790 RAS $350 – Less then I got my 33-791 for last year

Delta DJ-20 $1125 – But I already have one! I woulda jumped on this.

Delta/Rockwell Unisaw $550 – Have one already too.

Delta UniGuard 34-976 $115 – Always toyed with this idea of getting one of these, might consider this.

Delta Vintage 14” Band saw with Baldor motor $300 – I’m into the older better built machines.

An one other thing I might pick up if it’s still available… :)

Seems to be a buyers market out there.

I never seem to find any good deals when I look at my local craigslist. They ocasionally seem to pop up after I purchase a tool new. Maybe one day…

I seem to luck out that way. I picked up my 12” RAS for $500 which Rockler sells now for $2849 and a 15” Delta Variable Speed Drill Press for $400 that was selling for around $2400 but a look at Delta’s web site doesn’t show it anymore. In fact it only shows 2 DP’s the 17-950 and a bench top model, they used to have 20 or so, industrial models. Looks like B&D’s strangle hold is taking effect even more, just like the chop saws disappeared in favor of DeWalts.

Great deals can be found. We see great deals here in San Antonio a lot. Can be addicting. But gotta love getting great deals on great tools.

That does look like a pretty nice list of tools. I seach on the local CL pages every day and never see anything like these. But, then, if I did see something I like I would have to ask my wife for an advance on my allowance anyway.
