Topic tags/keywords: lathe jointer drum sander radial arm saw lumber racks

I quess it’s time to downsize my shop…... Age, Economy and total lack of space has made me take a look at a number of tools I don’t use and taking up valuable space.

#1. Rockwell/Delta Double Bed Lathe. If you have the room, this is a unique lathe set-up. It has a double bed, (each mounted on a seperate cabinet) It can be used as a single bed, 36” length or butt the second cabinet to it with a second bed to enable you to turn over 73” in length. I also built a full length sliding bed for a router to flute columns. It can be tilted to do tapered columns also. Has a indexing head, variable speed with step pulleys, adjustable tail stock and tool rest. ( sorry, no turning tools, I’m keeping those for my other lathe) $400.00 including the cabinets and sliding bed for fluting.

#2. Powermatic Model 75, 3hp double bag dust collector. Comes with misc. 4” Plastic pipe, tees, elbows, 45’s and connectors. $125.00

#3. Jet 6” Jointer. $100.00

#4. Craftsman 10”, 2.5hp Radial Arm Saw. $60.00

#5. Grizzly 24” Drum Sander. 5hp. Double drum, table feed sander. Needs some minor repairs. $200.00

I have a number of other items, too numerous to list such as a couple combination stand sanders, Heavy duty Lumber racks (these are commercial size).
You can e-mail me for pictures or call me The Hufford Furniture Group @ (843) 234-2866.
Myrtle Beach, SC area…........great place to come to pick up some woodworking tools and bring the family.

Do you have any idea what the Rockwell double bed lathe weighs or what it would cost to ship? Could you shoot a private post of the tool. I’ve found the 36in bed on my lathe limiting on a couple of projects. If this purchase is prohibitive based on distance and shipping, it would be nice to see how to convert a lathe to double bed. Thanks, BTKS

Hope you don’t mind, but I reprinted your original post on another major ww forum. You have some great deals and you may get some action out of the other group.

Thanks everyone! I sold all the extra tools I had to sell and have my new shop set up. It’s a lot smaller and It will take a little getting used to, but I’m enjoying it. I forgot how much “stuff” I had collected over the years and how much room it took just to store it!. Cleaning out cabinets, drawers, corners and under work benches was almost like Christmas! lol. I found tools, lumber and hardware items I forgot I had. I even found a few small projects I started 10 to 15 years ago that I never finished for one reason or another. I already have one of them finished and it turned out great…....Don’t know why I didn’t do it years ago. Hope to have a couple new projects to post in a few days. Thanks again, John
