I live near South Bend – if you ever find yourself over in the NW Indiana/SW Michigan area, I would be interested in meeting you somewhere to buy this. North side of Chicago is too far for me to go for a mortising machine, though!

Dang…. That’s nice.. Too bad you are in C-town… I know a couple of guys in Houston that would gladly snatch that off your hands…

Thanks all… I wouldn’t mind shipping it but I know it would be prohibitively expensive, probably doubling the price and then you may as well get a new one.

Eddie, I would ask more but I just want to get it out of my shop. I don’t do mortises enough to justify having it, and I could really use the space.

Yes Beginningwoodworker. Only issue I had with it was the handle slipping, I fixed that. I guess the idea was that you could re-adjust the handle midway through a plunge, but I like the handle to stay put. You need a shorter name. :)

TedW,
I’m serious, if you can get it as far as Portage or Gary area, I can meet you. I’ll even up your asking price a bit to cover your gas. A mortiser has been on my short list of tools-to-buy for a while, and they just don’t turn up used around here very much.

I’m a stay-at-home dad for two little boys, so a two-hour round trip is doable; four-hour not so much.

If you’re not interested in making that drive, I don’t blame you. (Last time I drove through Chicago my wife got busted by a red-light camera. $100, and according to the video she entered the intersection .4s after it changed to red.) But, let me know if we can work something out.

ayryq (if that’s your real name :)

I wouldn’t mind the drive. In fact I would bring it all the way to south bend if I could, as I have lots of family there. But I don’t have transportation.

Thanks, TedW. I hope you find a buyer locally. It’s a good tool and a good price.

With no transportation, you’re not just missing out on $100 red-light-camera tickets. There’s also license fees, registration fees, insurance fees… of course I bet I have an easier time hauling lumber!

“Eric”.. of course… duh! I’ve been breathing a lot of fumes and saw dust today, so I’m a little slower than usual. :)

Thanks Dave & Phil.. almost makes me want to start mortising stuff.

Dave.. I think that hammer thingy you’re referring to is a mallet. (hammer.. sheesh! charlatans…)
