Topic tags/keywords: chicago auctions tools

hello fellow LJs. I am moving to the Chicago area in a couple of weeks from over seas and I want to set up my shop there as well. I wanted to know if anybody knew of a good place to start looking for tools (table saws, planers, etc.). I don’t think I will have the money to buy all new, so looking for any leads on auctions, sales, etc. Does anybody know of a good place to start looking. I did some research online, but a lot of it is tools for metal work, and that’s not me.

thanks, any suggestions would be helpful.

I actually have a few machines that I’m looking to sell. I’m about 2hrs from Chicago, but I’ve made the trip lots of times. If you’re interested in stationary machines send me a PM and I can get you some pictures.
