Read the CL add first please: http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/tls/3865637161.html
So I read this add this morning. Maybe I am just too naive but I seemed to mis read the add and thought I was getting ready to score a whole shop’s worth of 2 year old Grizzly equipment for 2,500.00. I was thinking that I am grabbing 2,500.00 cash and I am on my way to grab myself some nice birthday gifts. I was most interested in the 21 spindle line boring, the 5 hp shaper and the 20” planer, but would happily by everything for what I thought was the asking price.
So I get the fella on the phone certainly feeling someone else has beaten me to this deal. Surprise, the equipment is still available. Wow so I am just getting more and more excited by the second. Then the fella tells me he is asking 2,500.00 for just the 5 hp shaper. He wants like 2,300.00 for the line borning, on and on, most of his prices over 2,000.00 for each piece of equipment. Now I am not saying the prices are too high, but they might be, not sure. But many of you might know me some by now and should know that since I have approximately 3,000 invested in 4 shapers, it is doubtful I would be willing to give almost 3,000 for one shaper. In fact, I really could not justify that cost against our budget.
Look at the listing and reply and let me know if it is clear in the add that this guy wants to sell machines separate, or does it appear he is listing all of his machines at the 2,500.00 price. Hind sight is 20/20 as they say and now I can see the add clearer.
