I have a chance, a slim one, but still a chance to get three nice practically new delta tools. TS BS Joiner for $600.00

Here is the ad.

We are moving and need to clear a few things out I purchase these a few years back and never use them,they all are on rollers,plus like new, no dust,etc even shown as to their motors the vaccum set up has 2 boxes of hoses with attachment for the saws you can see them and leave a offer, if I don’t sell them all for the 600.00. I might contact you. Call Ken at * and leave a message. I will return your call. Thanks

He has some guy coming from out of town tomorrow, but if anything goes wrong with that deal, I’m next in line. and yes, I will be reselling these, maybe not the BS.

Definitely a bargain. You could probably get your $600 back on the TS and jointer, which would mean getting the band saw for free!

I’m not sure, but I think the DC is part of that deal. I hope he calls me back.

i think it would be hard to sell the TS and jointer for $600 ($300 ea.). i’d put their value at between $200 and $250, especially the jointer. at $600, the 3 tools together are a very good and gloatable deal. if the DC were part of the deal, it’d pretty much be a home run. just my $.02 and here’s hoping the first guy passes.

According to the guy, he hasn’t used them. I think he developed some illness just after he got them and can’t use them. He’s moving now which is why he’s selling.

I’m guessing just from the photos with no idea of model numbers or retail values for brand new comparables. But, in general, if the tools really are in nearly-unused condition, I would think 75% of retail is a realistic CL price.

Charlie, These photo’s were taken in 2010. he says he hasn’t used them, or very little and they still look brand new. I’m thinking I can make about 400 and keep the band saw, which would make the whole thing a $1000 value for me.

I’d offer up to $1,000 if they still look the same as the photos. The BS sold for $600 new, the jointer (looks like the run of the mill DJ15) probably $500, the TS maybe $600 (looks like the stamped steel side tables but also looks like external belt drive as opposed to direct drive universal).
