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.
