for those starting into the wood working and looking to get machinery, keep in mind auctions at estate actions or even your own state’s auction (city buses went for $1000). do not just rely on craigslist.

this look nearly identical to the Powermatic 4224 Lathe like here for $100, but used condition from a high school.

why doesnt someone make the combo sander like delta/rockwell did with their's ? this one went for $300 used condition. i see the latest and greatest ‘shopmaster’ type of sander from delta and am not impressed. what would it take to bring back the old faithful combo sander?

also, a wonderful looking delta/rockwell 8” long bed jointer went for $300.

Super good point!
I found a 1959 16” Powermatic planer out of a school for $600.
It is like new, very little use, and came with a dozen new blades!

Have your say...
