The sander is here:
It’s a 1×42 belt and 8” disc sander. Seems to be out of production but it looks to be an exact replica of the Grizzly found here: http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-H8192-1%2522-42%2522-Sander/dp/B0017K8W3E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357093856&sr=8-1&keywords=grizzly+1x42+belt+sander
The Grizzly unit sells for $190 new but has marginal reviews. From what I gather from the reviews, however, it’s not exactly the same as the Delta which seems to be a bit better made (according to the reviewers, one specifically who bought the Grizzly to replace his burnt out Delta and wasn’t happy with the changes Grizzly made).
The scroll saw is here:
It’s listed on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Delta-SS350-Shopmaster-Professional-Variable/dp/B00006K00E/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
I can’t find a price anywhere and some quick Googling seems that the price is a bit high (although the machine looks to be, as listed, in pristine, unused condition). I don’t know much about scrollsaws so is there anything on this machine that I should be wary of? Will it take all types of blades (whatever that even means, at this point I don’t know, just want to make sure I don’t buy a scrollsaw that won’t take a certain type of blade that I want to use after finding out a bit more about scrolling. I read something about pin types err something-a-rather, I’m really clueless here :)
Can anyone that has one or both of these machines chime in? What was original purchase price? What are they worth? I offered $225 for both and he countered with $300. I told him $250 final offer as the location is over an hour away from me so gas is obviously the offsetting factor here. What is a fair price all things considered?
I really appreciate any help offered, particularly about the scroll saw. The sander, I’ve considered the HF model (1×30 belt alone, don’t even really know how much I’d use the disc, which normally goes on sale for $39.99 and with the 20% coupon can be had for roughly ~$35 after tax).
