Topic tags/keywords: planer

Emailed with the guy he says:Hi Wayne, Posted Pictures today. I can only say that it was represented to be useable to me.

The one who must be obeyed says I cant go to MO and pick it up… I’m pretty sure if I left at 9pm I could be back by lunch, I wonder if she’d notice that I left?

If someone gets this you have to post pics so I can drool

That planer will be hard to move, you know. Moving heavy stuff is
where all the fun is though… I forget the real priorities sometimes. Duh.

Im thinking the little plastic lver furniture pad commercial I just saw on tv is the ticket. Seriously though Some 1 inch dowels, a pallet jack, and a small comealong will move alot of things

I say go get it NOW. I recently participated in an online-only auction that was held about 7 hours north of here. I bought an old drill press, a portable air compressor and a batch of vices. I took the advice of the auctioneer and contacted a comnpany (the auctioneer’s brother, probably) to pick the stuff up and package it for a trucker of my choice to pick up. Well, the guy picked it up while we, or at least I, was still negotiating. He charged me $440. My first quote from FED EX Freight was $600 to pick it up and get it here. I only paid $300 for the stuff to begin with! I should have gotten in the SUV driven the 7 hours and picked it up. It all worked out, for a lot less money, thanks to Fed Ex, but I learned a big lesson. GO PICK IT UP.
