I am not even finished getting my garage workshop started let alone completed. I had set up some alerts on CL for some used equipment. For the most part it was your typical junk that showed up but then there was a very nice looking band saw that popped up. It looked brand new and was outfitted with a rockler table an fence system along with lots of extras. as I was typing my email to the seller….. another alert popped up from the same guy, a 17” Drill Press with a similar description, table, fence and extras.

I emailed him and asked him to give me a call. He called me a few minutes later and I asked what else he was selling because was putting my shop together. I got his address, he was just a short 15 minute drive from here, and was able to view the tools yesterday afternoon. I have to say that even though the average age of his tools was about 6-7 years they were immaculate! There was not a lick of rust to be found and they looked as if they were right off the showroom floor.

I am ending up with:

17” Delta Drill Press, mortising attachment, table and fence system
14” Delta Band saw, rockler table and fence, mobile base, extra blades and attachments for the table
Jet 10” Contractor’s saw, mobile base, sliding table, outfeed table , additional side extensions, accessories, dado blades, multiple inserts, mobile base etc.
Jet Dust collector with chip separator
Rockler Router Table with steel stand, mobile base
Dewalt Dw735 Planer complete with steel stand, mobile base, extra knives
Delta MIDI Lathe with extension, gouges, extra chucks, mobile stand

All of this and more. The guy took exceptional care of his equipment and all of the manuals are included. Out the door for $2600. Yes that is probably a bit of a premium price but the value of knowing how well each piece was taken care of by the same owner coupled with being 15 minutes from me make it worth it.

I will post pics shortly.

I thought so too. I found some seemingly good stuff but would have to commit a good 1.5-2 hour drive just to see it.

You should be very happy. It could have taken you a long time and a lot of frustration to get all of that over time, not to mention travel and other problems. ‘Ya done good’ pal.

Way to freaking go. That’s a great score. Only thing you need is time, wood and ideas.

Nice score on the machines. I always found that I never thought twice about the price I paid for something I use. It was always the things I don’t use or didn’t like that caused buyer’s remorse.
