Picked up some new to me equipment for the shop today.

I went to buy the jointer and he talked me into the sander and the clamps.

The jointer is a Delta 37-190. Needs new blades in a serious way, but everything else seems good to go. I will probably replace the bearings and give it a good cleaning.

Only thing is that the rpm’s seem really low compaired to the little Craftsman I was using. Not sure if that is normal or not. It seemed to have plenty of power when running a 4 inch wide piece of mesquite across it.

The sander is a Grizzly G1014Z 6” x 48” belt sander/9” disc sander. I did what would normally take me over an hour with a handheld belt sander in less than 10 minutes and that was with the old worn out belt on it. I think this thing will be a real time saver for me.

Finally, I got 31 clamps. 13 pipe clamps and 18 bar clamps ranging in size from 60” to 18”.

I wouldn’t say I stole it, but I gave him $300 for it all. With the prices of used equipment in this area, I think it is a pretty fair deal. I was more excited about the clamps than anything else. At $10 each, that would be $300 just for them.

I had 8 clamps before today! LOL

I used the pipe clamps on a cutting board this evening, and they are ten times better than what I was using.

Pipe clamps alone are worth $200+

Nice score. Paid a fair price for the clamps and got a free jointer and sander with em.
