I recently bought a used Delta lathe. It came with some nice tools and some super woods. If you are interested in anything please sent me an email or email me at ers2907@hotmail.com

I can’t use all of the tools or woods. Most of the wood was not marked so here’s what I was able to figure out so far.

3 Sorby tools. All in good shape with minimal use. 10 mm bowl gouge 22”, 6mm bowl gouge 22 1/4” and oval skew 13mm 16”. Take all for $110 shipped.

5 antique tri-squares. I believe they are have Rosewood and brass inlays in the handles. They have some rust but I thought if I tried to clean them up I might hurt their value. Take all 5 for $46 shipped.(If I happen to have something rare or valuable please let me know if they are too cheap!!)

California fiddleback Live Oak blank. 7”x7”x2 1/4”+. Dry, super fiddleback and crazy grain. $25 shipped.

SUPER Brazilian Tulipwood. Old stock, 20+ years dry. Better contrast and color than the photos show.28” long, 5 1/2” down to 4” wide and 2 1/8” thick. Amazing beautiful and smells wonderful. A very dense piece, I took a few end grain cuts to clear any old checks and the pieces sank in water. In the end grain photo you may be able to the 1/2” crack from being near the pith. No pith in the wood. I could not find anything in this size or quality on the Internet so the best offer gets it.

Lace Redwood burl blank. Dry. 7 1/8”x6 7/8”x1 7/8”. A beautiful, flawless piece. $30 shipped. SOLD!!!!

Lace Redwood burl blank. Dry. 15 3/4”x7 1/8”x1 1/2”. Another super clean piece. 1 small inclusion on each side. $50 shipped. SOLD!!!!!

Paypal preferred. Thanks, Eric.

I ‘ve had some people ask about the price of the Tulipwood. I have no idea what it’s worth. I found a few sites that have a piece or two but much smaller or only 4/4. Does anyone know of a website that has a similar piece?

Thanks, Eric.

What’s the measurements of the last three pictures, and are their prices w/shipping to Collinsville, OK?

No takers on the Sorby tools? I thought they were priced to sell. Are they priced too high? Thanks for any input.

Eric.
