Good morning out the LJs.
This post has multiple purposes.
The first is to pat myself on the back for the find to end all finds in Findland. I just got my hands on a 5HP Sawstop in excellent condition for $800. That’s right. Eight hundred dollars.
I have bought & sold a lot of equipment, but this one is far and away the best deal I have ever seen. Hooray for me.
Now, we all know that price ain’t right. The SS has to be one of the most coveted units out there. That is way too cheap.
Well, when I went to pick it up on Tuesday, I spent the better part of the day with the seller in his shop. Folks, this is the nicest set up I have ever seen. Powermatic everywhere and very little use on any of the machines. Any one of us would give their eye teeth just to have a day to work in there. As it happens, a series of tragic misfortunes is forcing the sale of everything & the owner did not have a great understanding of the market for his equipment and was ready to give away everything.
See where the guilt is coming in yet?
To make a long story short, I offered to help him clean up and get some reasonable value back on his investment. This fella has been through (and is going through) some really tough times, and my work is pretty slow right now, so why not.
Now here is where, I hope, some of you come in.
If you are anywhere close to Maryland, you can find some top shelf equipment for a chunk below retail. I may even be able to arrange delivery, depending on your location.
Here is a partial list of the items for sale: PM Drill Press, Lathe, Jointer, Contractors TS, Mortiser, Drum Sander, Planer, Dust Colkector & Pipe. Jet Shaper, Spindle Sander & Delta RAS. Festool, Kreg, DeWalt, Bessey, and much more.
There are also trucks, trailers & a backhoe as well as a complete auto shop.
Please contact me for details on how you can get your hands on sone exceptional tools and help out a decent guy at the same time (not me – the owner).
I will be helping him list everything on CL/eBay as well, but I wanted to try here first.
I hope everyone has a great day and I appreciate your time. -RM
