Got a heads up from my local Rockler buddy about an estate sale he was handling. He new my need for a new sanding machine…. I was the first one there this morning and had the pick of litter. Here’s a small list of what I picked up.

Delta 6” Belt & 12” Disc Abrasive Finishing machine circa ‘93 – $100

Delta Hollow Chisel Mortiser model 14-650 – $40

Grizzley Radial Drill Press G7945/46 circa 2006 -$100

Complete Violin Luthier Set (with Curly Maple Neck Blanks, templates for every part of the violin and the clamping template) (photos to follow) – $20

Jet Mortising Bit Set – Free

Four Bessy 12 inch Clamps – $10

All of it in “like new” condition. Pictures to follow.

It was a good day.

Nice haul, there! Prices look pretty good too. I’d say you did well for your $270.

Nice catch. We never have sales like that around my area, least I never hear of them. Be fun to go too, especially if I had some change rattling in my pocket.

Mike, I think they use that song as a form of torture in CIA interrogations. ;-)

Rock on! Great haul. I would love to be able to make a violin, but then how the hell would I know if it was any good or not? Can’t play one and don’t listen to a lot of violin music. But for a 20 spot, it’s well worth it ( I think?) It’s sorta like Like French food: how do I know if it’s any good if I have no frame of reference other than plain old ‘merican meat and potatoes. If I can’t pronounce it, I probably won’t eat it.
