Since I have not found a place, and my credit isn’t “good enough” because I don’t like debt, and the only debt I have is my student loans, I can’t buy the house I am currently living in, so I have to sell the delta unisaw, and powermatic model 60 8” jointer. I started the restore on the powermatic, you can see the pics in my other thread, and havnt touched the delta yet. I was hoping to finish the powermatic, but may not have time before it sells.

I am in Indianapolis indiana,

I think I will ask $500 a piece,

The delta will include the extended table, 52” uniguide, the blade guard, and the new delta tendon clamp guide I bought as well.

I can upload more pics later, however I have lots of pics in my other threads.

Fancy, sorry to hear about that. Do you have a credit card? My long-time card was my only line of credit and the realtor was able to set me up with a mortgage… maybe you just need to ask around. Those are some nice tools, wish I lived close enough.

Yeah I just got a credit card last month, just to buy groceries once a month.

If you listen to Dave Ramsey on radio, he talks about “manual underwriting” for people without credit scores. Better to have a down payment and no debt than a high credit rating, and high debt.

+1 for Dave Ramsey … we followed his plan, wiped out our debt, and were able to pay cash for our retirement home. I don’t have a ‘credit score’, but don’t care … I don’t need one.

Yeah, I listen to him, and called the people he recommended and even asked them about that, but they said they don’t do manual underwriting. I also had the cash for the down payment.

When I was in the building business, I found that a GOOD realtor was worth their commission. They will find you a lender.

It would be a shame to sacrifice your tools. Any chance you could put them in storage?

I could put them in storage, but don’t want to pay storage fee. I’m sure I can come across more machines, I have only been looking since sept. I just sold my 14” delta band saw to a guy at work. I can save the money, and buy more later.

Consider this: Rather than “storing” them, lend them to a friend who just might love to have them, and will take good care of them, while you settle your living situation. I’m just sayin…..

You just might end up getting them back down the road when you are moved in/out.

I would have done that, but I onlybknow one person who does this kind of stuff, and he already has most of his stuff, and also doesn’t have more space. I did sell him my delta band saw, he was looking for the 14”, and helped me out with that, I can always buy it back from him, or buy more stuff in the future. I don’t know many people who have room for my tools.

I would love to have that jointer, but the budget won’t allow any big purchases… hope you have luck finding a buyer. If you still have it in the early spring I would be highly interested.

A tablesaw is the LAST “big” tool on my wish list. Considering IF I could come up with the money, Indy is just too far from me and would add considerably to the cost in getting it down here.

Saws like this are priced WAY HIGHER down here in “small-town-ville” , plus they’re few and far between to be found.

I would love to have them both, but my resources won’t allow it. I have an old Craftsman 2214 TS, but that Delta would look sweet in my shop!...

I got a call last night from someone in Ohio wanting to come out next week to pick up the delta, I hope they follow through.
