Hopefully someone will come through for you.

I need to add a tool to this now because the clown that was supposed to buy it turned out to be a flake. It’s the grizzly 18” open end drum sander and it was also new last January. I am asking $650 and it also has the shop fox mobile base.

Hey guys. Well I got into a purdickament to where I had to let some of them go for a lot cheaper. I gave the jump saw, table saw and air compressor up for 3k. Yep, definately hard times. I do have some of the other stuff for sale still, and all of it will be for sale soon as my house is foreclosing. I managed to bring everything to the garage to buy more time and see if I can get more money out of it. It’s sad to think that my woodworking career is almost over. I won’t be able to afford to live off of a woodworkers salary here in CA so I am going to pursue a career in Law Enforcement. Problem there is that they typically reject people if they are having financial problems. They fear the mental state of the person may not be good. I’ve gone through a lot lately and I think if I was going to SNAP I would have done it already. LOL. Maybe I’m on my way. I’ll keep everyone posted on what’s going to be for sale as the time for me to move gets closer. Thanks guys for the thoughts.

Just don’t mention your financial state when applying. Be honest if asked. They need a lot of help right now and will make allowances. Many cops have money troubles. See if you can consign the machinery somewhere. That will get it out of your way and under cover. Now, get the apps in and head for the academy. Mainly be honest but don’t dwell on the problems. I used to sit on a hiring board. You’re not alone.

Thanks for the encouragement on pursuing law enforcement. It is what I always wanted to do but I fell into woodworking early in my life. (14) I had to get a job to pay for my school cloths and my first car when I turned 16. My parents did the best they could but with 4 of us and a low paying job it was hard for them. 3 of us got jobs to support ourselves. That allowed my parents to pay off their trailor and get a newer vehicle of their own. So the law enforcement career had always been put off because I was staying busy. I did apply a few times before, didn’t get the score I needed to be a deputy (only SSO), and the next few times I applied I got busy and missed the test. I did take and pass the Oceanside tests but they never called me back. This morning I was supposed to go and take the Orange County test but I am discouraged as to where I am going to live. With the house forclosing I may leave to Riverside county. So I am going to apply there. Anyhow, maybe this recession and the loss of my business is the mans way of putting me into the career I’ve always wanted. Although it would have been a lot nicer of him to put me into it with better credit, less debt, and fewer problems. I guess it will be my price to pay.

have read your saga and am inpressed that you still have an uplifting attitude. (when he closes a door he opens a window) a door closed for you but it looks like he has opened a window. Hope you all the best in the new career. As to why I posted, I’m looking for a dovetail machine like the one you have (If you still have) If you do still have it please reply because I have a large job that will alow me to purchase it. (am tired of out sourcing them due to odd sizes and angles) and once again good luck

I have done a couple pre-employment background investigations for my deparetment, and a credit report is always pulled for each applicant. So you’ll probably niot be able to side-step the issue, but you can certainly explain it. For us anyway bad credit can serve as a red flag but we will not toss an applicant just because of that before at least talking to them. Good luck !
