Thats what we tell the ones here when buying used, patients, better in some geographic areas then others of course.
I have been watching CL for about 5 years, bought most of my shop on it, for less then 1200$. I see it go in streaks on the type of machinery, the last few months I have seen more wood lathes then I have totally in the past 4 years.

No offense, but it’s patience. Patients are folks in the hospital. And congrats – nothing better than finding good old iron. Photo?

Cool! Some of the best finds I’ve had are when I gave up looking :)

If no pic’s it didn’t happen.

GREAT find! I just finished a full restoration on a PM141 from the early 80s and couldn’t be more impressed with the tool. It is a great machine. I second dhazelton, you can’t tease the goods and not send pics.

Patients pay out the wazoo – especially those getting a colonoscopy.

Have your say...
