Delta Homecraft most likely from the late 40’s early 50’s. I could tell you more with serial numbers. They were desined for home/light shop/hobbist use and are in general well made. Parts can be found if necessary through private sellers, mostly from owwm.org. I am not familiar with the bandsaw. Possibly Shopsmith?

Value on something like this is really hard. A decent ballpark value on the table saw/jointer combo would be $150-$200, drill press about $125. The sander and bandsaw I honestly dont know.

I would think $100 to $125 on the bandsaw. Sander is harder to tell from the photos…

The jointer, table saw and drill press are probably part of a funny
little combination machine system Delta made. You could run
them all off one motor by stwitching belts and the drill press had
a pivot hinge that allowed it to be folding down on the side or
flipped up to sit on the table saw.

Your drill has been modified to have its own motor – but look around
to see if you have the pulley arrangement to allow it to run off
the table saw motor too.

The sander looks like a Shopsmith – same as the Magna brand I think
but maybe marketed a bit differently.

Those Shopsmith/Magna power units (the base with the motor) do
have some value I think.

All this stuff together has some collector value I think – maybe $500
or so if you’re patient about finding a buyer. It certainly has some
user value to the person who wants some decent compact machinery.

The band saw is a forerunner of the present day Shopsmith. Good little saw that has not changed appreciably over the years. Newer ones can bring $150+. OTOH, I’ve seen them on CL for 1/2 that.
Agree with Loren on the sander’s pedigree.
That base and motor would fetch $100 +. $200 would be a stretch, but the sander and stand together might bring $200. Then again, who knows??

I just looked it up and the sander unit without the base just sold
for $242 on ebay. Some of that Shopsmith stuff is sought after
by guys who enjoy the system and want all the accessories.

Locally it would go for less – the collectors go to ebay and pay sometimes
outlandish prices to have some thingamajig shipped to Timbuktu.

Why wouldn’t you just list the brands instead of letting us guess?

If you do decide to post an ad on Craigslist for them, be sure to add the brand names for each item in the listing, e.g. Shopsmith Bandsaw. People often search by brand.

Related to Craigslist, the SF Bay Area Craigslist has a lot of listing and buyers. You should have good luck posting there. I’m in Sacramento and often shop the bay area list.
