Stopped by an auction today and it almost turned out to be a bust. There was a total of about 15 people there, good for me if they had tools. The only tools that was there was two flats of odd and end screwdrivers and wrenches. The “big stuff” was a 6 HP air compressor that was a 220 (that knock me out, no 220 in the workshop) and then there was this:

This is a Penn State Industries 1 HP Heavy Duty Dust Collector.

Came with all that you see:
Collector (retail $299)
Sweeper attachment (retail $67.99)
Lathe attachment (retail $64.59)
Grand total retail $431.58

I walked away with it for $75.

I got a Delta DC off craigslist for $30 a few months back. Only a 3/4hp rig, but works great for my limited needs. I thought I got the best DC deal in history until I saw your gloat. That was one great find.

In looking at the picture isn’t it a little over kill for a living room? :)
