That’s a lot of iron, wonder what comes out per pound? The price is right.

Damn! That thing looks like it is about the size of my whole shop. Just move some clamps and a router table etc and squeeze that sucker in.

That price isn’t bad at all. Looks like a new challenge for you…

Loren, I think even you may have trouble getting that one moved

I’m just kidding around of course. There have been
a few of these machines for sale in my area and needless
to say, they take a long time to sell. Just like some
people make a good living as moulder mechanics/owners,
I suppose if one found a market a carving machine
could be part of a turnkey operation with minimal
staffing needs.

I’ve never understood how someone can drop $23K for a tool, and never use it. Why on earth did they buy it in the first place?

Probably for an ongoing production deal that
fell through. Furniture parts or something, perhaps
a hotel chain refurnishing job requiring french
style designs.

They probably bought it in a moment of greed thinking it would make them lots of money then cnc router carvers came along

I think we both have the same woodworking disease. The only thing that keeps me out of trouble is that I
have not built a new shop with more room yet, and I may never build it since it keeps me out of trouble and
off the street corners now.
