I’m looking to buy old woodworking machinery, particularly at this moment a bandsaw and lathe. Let me know if you have anything available. I’m wanting to restore and put to good use. Thanks!

Thanks. I posted over there as well but thought it couldn’t hurt to give this a try too.

Watch your local Craigslist. The best way to search Craigslist is “search tempest”. look it up. OWWM is good for information if you need to repair or want to know some history. There are tools for sale, but how far do you want to travel?
Take a look at my workshop. Most of my tooling was found local on Craigslist.
Good Luck

+1 on CL… also local classifieds, auctions, garage/estate sales, etc…

OWWM is a good source, but as pointed out, not usually local. The good news is that you can pretty much rest assured that anything you get from there will be honestly and accurately described/pictured, even though you might not be able to see the machine in person. And not being local is not always a problem, as the folks over there ‘Rucker’ machines all over the country quite often. There is even a dedicated “Ruckerer’s Rodeo” forum where you can coordinate machine moves between members. It may take a while before you get it, but it won’t cost you a fortune like standard shipping would.

Cheers,
Brad

I really like your shop. Awesome restorations. I just finished my first restoration, a 1952 4” Tomlee jointer. Now I am hooked on old cast iron and looking for my next project.
