Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw jointer clamp blade drill press router shaper dust collector

I think I just made the haul of a lifetime…. I’ll admit there have been times ive seen where others have scored a great deal on an item, and while im happy for them, ive silently wondered “Why cant I ever seem to find a deal like that”? Well I think that all changed today! I was on the hunt for a unifence and rail…..I drove away with a truck and trailer filled. With a return trip for more!

Contents of the Haul.

3 hp dual bag shopfox 3000fcm dust collector
3hp 10 inch Delta rockwell Table saw (just maintenanced by delta, new bearings and balancing March 2015) 120/240

I have to make a return trip tomorrow as the fella is consolidating everything in his shop to move to florida. I’ll pick up any other tools he isnt wanting to keep as well as a half truckload of 3/8 verneer maple plywood, 1/2 Inch Birch Plywood ans 3/4 Birch Plywood as well as another half truck load of roughcut hardwoods. Also about 100 ft of 6 inch dust collector lines (PVC Continuously Grounded) with all fittings for collections of all blast gates for machines.

COST to SEAL the DEAL…............... $ 2,600

Will I ever top this deal, or is this my once in a lifetime break?

Good for you….

The thing about deals like this is that you can really only benefit from them early in your shop setup process…. and I you have a wad of cash.

I recently saw a “whole shop package” nearby, but I have already acquired 90% of what the guy was selling (some better some not as good). Of course, I could have set up shop for 1/4 the price if I had this opportunity (and the cash) 15 years ago.

The deal is ok, based on all the ‘extra bits and pieces’.

if it were just the Contractor Tablesaw, Shaper, 6 inch Jointer and drill press for 2600..then it would be high.

At this point, I think the “searching for a good deal” period of your life is over and done with!

Lots of toys and building material to keep you busy for a long time. I hope you have a place for all of that stuff.
If not, just pick up the phone and dial 634-5789! :-)
