Just thinking of my drawer of broken tools I can’t part with but would be happy to see used as parts. I’ll have to get a list of my dead routers, disfunctional sanders, and just plain broken nailguns.

I’m with you dennis I think I have 3 routers I could part out or just sell because they are old. I also have 2 band saws, and 2 scrollsaws. Nothing really wrong with them, I just don’t use them any more. your bud mike

Dennis, I certainly have these lying around, but even worse for me, is the ‘must have woodworking stuff’ I was suckered into buying that never lived up to its promise. Some are still in their original boxes. I could provide a long list of these, but might be sued for liable if I did.

And my conscience forbids me to sell, or even give them away to an unsuspecting friend.

Why don’t I have a resaw machine like that? Oh, I don’t think my neighbors would like it. You lucky guy.

BB - give them a couple of planks, (or make them a 5 board bench from scratch) and they’ll be loving you!

If someone has a bandsaw (big enough for a little ripper like Debbie has) I’d be interested. I’m going to be thinning the woods behind my house (one spot in particular may be the site for a new workshop someday). If you folks could see what I call a workshop you’ld laugh, and I am most definitely not tool poor. I’ll be interested in any good used machines.

I need to find out what the going rate is for portable sawmill work around here. I’d like to turn some of the trees on the site into timbers for the workshop.

I have a Ryobi router table that is brand new that I bought at home depot a couple of years ago… then someone perminantly borrowed the router. It is not the totally cheesy one but not the top of the line (they have 3 I think) this is the mid level one. I want the router switch if I can unmount it but this is brand new an has never been used.. If someone could really use it and is willing to pay shipping it is yours…

Hey guys , I found a hitachi 2 1/4 router for next to nothing , very good deal from a very good guy. So thanks MsDebbieP but looks like I got the router problem covered. Drew1House , do you still have that table? I would be willing to pay shipping if it wasn’t too much to New Brunswick Canada. Let me know. Thanks.

I hope I am not comming off as a begger here. It is just that My son and I are both disabled and are not real wealthy so I try to buy things as cheap as I can. I am trying to learn woodworking with my son as he can’t go to school due to his disease.
I wasn’t looking for pity. I am just looking for deals.

Sorry if I came across that way.

Tide walker, I’ve got a scollsaw (new-unused) 45.00, A real nice lathe that would do you great I paid 40.00 on ebay plus shipping, you can have it for same, plus chisels, a bandsaw, black and decker 40.00 off ebay plus shipping. You can have any or all for prices quoted if you pay for shipping and if you don’t like any of them I’ll give you your money back and pay to have them shipped back. Mike
