I’m looking to buy a Foley saw retoother, model 385 preferred. Also need a set of ratchet bars and set of gauges for positioning saw on carrier. PM if you have these available or know of any for sale.

Here's one. It was posted on June 17. Good luck! Just found it but it’s not mine.

Thanks Don. I actually saw that ad about a week ago, but since it says sale pending I didn’t follow up. I suspect it’s long gone by now. Looks like it’s nice and complete though.

I had not noticed the “Pending Sale” in the ad. The good news is that you know they’re out there.

Bob, I wish you were closer. I have a spare 385, carrier bars, and ratchet bars. Two of everything, except the higher PPI ratchet bars. I’ve looked into shipping before and it’s prohibitive.

Thanks Greg. I should have updated this thread before. I found a bunch of Foley equipment a while back, and am now pretty well set. Of course if I ever run across any good deals, especially on ratchet bars, I’ll pick them up, since they’re so hard to find.

Bob, if you happen to have any spare ratchet bars, please let me know. I’m trying to put together another full set.
Thanks!

Also, let me know if you need any spare parts. I have quite a few now.

Thanks much, I appreciate that. I only have the 5 standard ratchet bars, and they are kind of worn. I’d like to pick up a few more, especially the optional ones. I have a few spare carriers I could part with.

Not much info, but local craigslist here in Phoenix had this:

There was a guy in Utah selling a ton of stuff recently on CL for about $4k to basically start your own business. I can’t find that ad anymore.

Good luck!

I know this is an old post, but does anyone have any parts at all for a Foley model 20000 Lever operated retoother? I’m looking for a backup to mine
