..Craigslist ain’t so bad. Mind you, I love reading the posts in the Craigslist have gone nuts thread, some really entertaining stuff there..
But I happened to strike a few very good deals though, just last week.
First up, a nice heavy duty half horse drill press that I picked up for $90. It’s your garden variety Taiwanese-built drill press, but it’s good and heavy, built right, came with a nice angle-able vice, and the all important run-out measurement is within a cool one thousands.
Take a look:
Next up, an old ‘blue label’ JET band saw, sold to me in perfect working condition for $110 with a roll-around stand ..sweet..
Last but not least, an old JET 12” planer, people tell me that the ‘updated’ version of this planer was ‘way better’ and others say ‘not as good’ ... meh… who knows.. All I know is, once I tuned it up and tested it, it suits all of my needs… $90 bucks…
Cheers guys (and gals) Have a great day :)
