We’re going to move where it’s warm. I’ve got $25 thousand PLUS in PROFESSIONAL woodworking tools that we can’t possibly take to Southern California…so the entire lot is for sale. The list includes Grizzly, Powermatic, Delta, etc. Most are virtually new and have thousands of hours remaining on them (I put this shop together with mostly NEW tools—some came from our former shop when we moved it out to the farm)...some are classics (like the antique Rockwell/Milwaukee drill press that still works like a new one).

THIS is your chance to completely outfit a nice woodworking shop, with almost new tools, at far less than half the price . I don’t really want to go through the agony of having to sell things one at a time, so I’ll take less money to sell as a package. ALSO INCLUDED are hundreds of board feet in exotic lumber as well as domestics like hard maple, walnut, and cherry.

This shop is everything you will need to turn out quality furniture, fixtures, toys, etc….EVERYTHING you’ll need…at a bargain basement price. (To whet your appetite—there’s a 12-inch CABINET SAW and a digital 18-inch wide-belt sander in the mix, along with a 42-inch lathe, Powermatic bandsaw, a REAL industrial downdraft table, dust evac system….the list goes on and on and on.)

This isn’t a bunch of worn-out junk—wide belt sander, cabinet saw, horizontal sander, router & table—each with less than 100 hours on them. There’s an older Powermatic 18-inch bandsaw that (you KNOW this machine) is absolutely incredible.

Also in the mix is an assortment of some seriously nice DRY lumber – most KD, but some of the Wanlut has been on the rack for 30 years. Tools alone are more than $25,000 new…the lumber’s worth a few grand as well—I’ll sell the whole thing for $10,000. I’m pretty firm on this (it IS a good deal).

Who are you, not the organization to whom you claim to be a member?
Where is your shop (pictures)?
No history? Projects? Blogs? etc.

So…this is how we treat ‘new’ members?

I need to sell the equipment because I don’t want to pay to truck it to Temecula. Of COURSE there’s no “history” because I JUST FOUND THIS WEBSITE.

LOOK at the website…look for woodworkers…look for WEST VIRGINIA…look for ‘Chapman’. I had to go through TWO juries and a background investigation before they’d let me into the Guild. Do a little due diligence to prevent egg on the face.

Let’s be fair. You’re not a member here. You have no intention of being part of the LJ community and contributing anything at all.

You’re simply using the site. So there is no egg on Mike’s face. He is questioning your use of the site, not whether or not you are a legit woodworker, nor whether or not your sale is legit.

That being said, I’m not aware that your ad is against any rules. Good luck with your sale.

Nice way to jump on someone, he’s here to sell stuff which isn’t a bad reason to show up and isn’t spam. He’s selling the kind of stuff you need to show up for with a truck, if its legit you’ll know when you show up with the equipment to take it all away and hand him his money. If you’re not the buyer then lay off him.
To the OP, good luck with the sale, if I could I would for what you’re asking but getting it all up the stairs to my shop would kill me if the wife didn’t first.

I know I could sure use a few more tools…

May be interested if you weren’t so far from Canada.

Good Luck!

Mike questioned my membership in the Guild (and thus, legitimacy). THAT is what really bothered me. I sweat bullets through those juries, and I do Guild QUALITY work.

Now…since I’m moving to California, I’ll lose my membership (unless I move back East again…not too likely). And, when I get there I’ll get new equipment and set up another shop…and will probably participate here with ideas and questions.

But for now, you’re right. I need to sell some equipment—which everybody here uses. (By the way, my shop is also upstairs in the old, renovated barn (I cut a door in the side of the old loft so I could crane the equipment in with a forklift.)

I would be happy to be wrong on this, but you HAD NOT provided ANY identifying information to the LJs community and immediately wanted someone to show up with $10k in pocket to give to an unidentified and unknown person at some an unknown/unstated location!

Get real… or better yet, go to Craig’s List. If you are going to sell stuff, you HAVE TO share SOME identifying information. How else do you think someone could trust the post? Geez…

And BTW, you never identified yourself WITHIN the guild, you only blindly claimed membership. You have only now identified yourself.

What’s the big deal , It could be a good deal for one of our members even if GuildWoodworker is here just to sell his tools . I say give him the benefit of the doubt. He’s not selling insurance, or frozen food it’s woodworking related. Sorry to disagree with you Mike. I always like people to feel welcome on LJs and I think that’s the way most members feel.

Welcome GuildWoodworker Some photo’s of your tools and material might help.

OK y’all—I’ve added some pics, a link to the Guild membership page, etc. NO…I’m not selling insurance nor frozen food. I just need to liquidate some equipment so we can move (I’ve already got a new shop planned for the California property). Thanks to a1Jim for good thoughts and advice.

I am always happy to be proven wrong and/or corrected. At least we can now see what makes @GuildWoodworker tick and drool over some of his/her work.

I’m in So. Cal – look me up when you get here if you like. The market
is tough everywhere, but in a big city there are opportunities you won’t
find in less populated areas.

Welcome, Guild, to LJs. Hope you’re able to get the extra inventory to folks who can use it. Good luck on the move!
