Topic tags/keywords: rockwell jet powermatic

This ad came up on Craigslist today and I’m going to see the tools in an hour or so, included are: a Powermatic jointer, Rockwell 43-361 shaper, random drill press, Rockwell 12” benchtop planer (not sure which model, 52-something), random air compressor, and a blue 12 – 14” Jet bandsaw (size not listed but looks to be in that range). The lot is going for $1400; I called and everything is apparently in good shape. Any inputs based on the minimal information I have and the ad listed below?

Assuming you need all of these machines and they are in good shape then yes its a decent price.

Well, the ad has been taken down.

Only lasted a day! Guess it was a good deal, whatever it was :)

Missed the ad but based on the info you posted, it seems like a really good deal.

That’s what happens with CL the good deals get snapped up.

When I see a great deal I always put “Call me first” in my reply, seems to work for me, when I ask them why they called me, they said because you asked!
