Hi All,

This just came up on craigslist in Sacramento.

This person is selling all of his woodworking tools. They are at 50% of new and look to be in perfect condition. He says most are only 2 years old and purchased new.

Hi John;

Really great tools there! And well kept.

I really hate to see this from the point of view that someone is obviously going out of business.

More than likely due to our politicians careful handling of our economy.

Sometimes I wonder who’s side they’re really on. (besides their own).

The country would be in better shape if we gave them all a raise and told them to stay home. And we’ll call them if we need ‘em.

Hi John,

That moisture in the air is me droolling up the road looking at all that gold and that Ulmia bench (that project got put on the back burner). One of these days something like this is going to come at the opportune time. Thanks for posting.

It’s a sad day in woodworking when one of our own has to dispose of his toys…oops tools.

To clarify a few things. I talked with the person selling these tools and he is moving into a different home and will not have the space to set up. He decided it would be better to sell the tools rather than put them in storage. He is a general contractor and decided to do some of the milling and other woodwork himself. He has since decided that it is not cost effective for him to go this route. He will buy more tools down the road if he feels he wants to do more woodworking. He is not going out of business. Just doing his contracting side of things.
