Here’s a post from my local Craigslist. If I sold my shop as is and took out a mortgage on my dog I might be in the ballpark (might have to throw my car in as well). The 80 gal compressor is exceeds my needs by a factor of roughly 80, and some of the things I simply don’t /won’t need, but DAMN! A fella could outfit himself in one fell swoop if he had a chunk of change ready to go.

Here’s the game – let’s here your estimates. I’ll let you know (and by LJ honor, it’s not me, nor anyone I know) the seller’s price for the lot soon… Of course, how can you tell w/out pics and other additional info, but from what I can gather a few of us have some time on our hands for this type of thing. What else are you going to do while the glue dries?

Small wood shop for sale.

2-Tables saws: 1-Delta unisaw 10” 52” fence. 1-Grizzy 10”. 1-Delta 15” plainner with moble base. 1-8” Delta Jointer with moble base. 1-15”Jet band saw with moble base. Reliant 2bag dust collector.

Without knowing age or condition of those tools, this is a real crapshoot. I’m going to put the whole shooting match at $5K.

Chuck, the 2nd table saw is the one you’re going to train your mother-in-law to make all the dangerous cuts on.

Its hard to tell without more info, but taking a guess in my head, I would say he is asking about $6500.

Is this the price is right? Did Bob Barker come out of retirement? :) This is a tough economy and the guy wants to make a one time sale. I would say he would let it all go for 3500. As a one time shot, very few people are going to have 5-6 grand sitting in their bank account, so it would have to be a real tempting offer.

I’m pulling a Price is Right and going $8,000, that looks like a one man cabinet shop, they never seem to understand that the non-sale price is nowhere near what used tools sell for…

I know that I should be able to exhibit more patience than this. But when will you divulge the actual asking price for all this equipment?

Some great guesses out there, contestants! Sure, hard to tell anything w/out pics of any of the tools, but our soon-to-be former woodworker is asking… wait for it…

$6300 for the lot.

Well played, all. Kudos to Wayne, and for Autumn for great guesses.

On a side note, according to a confirmation email I recieved from Amazon, my wife just ordered my a set of Narex chisels for christmas. Not sure how this got by her, but she also ordered a 1hp 6” Jet jointer for $775. I realized it was something that Amazon wouldn’t show you the price of until/unless you put it in your shopping cart, which I did. I guess I didn’t remove it. The 90 minutes between the order and my frantic phone call was apparently 45 minutes too long, and they tried to tell me there was nothing they could do about it. Sounds like now they might be able to change/cancel the order, but it will take a couple of days. Ugh

Long story short, it might be a heck of a christmas around here.

Thanks for playing!
