Entire Shop for Sale


Interesting link to a gentleman selling his entire shop on eBay. Most of the tools appear vintage but, then again, vintage normally can mean quality, accuracy and heavy castings.

Yep. Comes up for sale about every six months. Seems like the price is coming down a bit. $33K now, I think it used to be $35K. He refuses to part it out. That's one of the distinguishing characteristics to recognize this auction every time it comes up.

It was somewhere outside Barstow when LRod

It's a bargain.
But it's only practical if you already have that sort of money lying around loose. There's just too much in one package to buy all at once.
If this was in the UK, and it was a couple of years ago when I had that cash, then I'd buy it all and re-sell most of it the next day - but I'd be selling them individually.
I am surprised no dealer has picked it up. It's not _that_ cheap though. The prices are good for the condition, but there are always more buyers around who want a cheaper, tattier machine than who want the good one for a bit more.

It would be interesting to add up the (new) prices of what he is selling, and then figure out the percentage at $33,000. I went through this process with my dad's shop when we sold it several years ago, and showing this to the buyer -- who was a bit hesitant on the asking price -- made a big difference in completing the deal.

Nice bunch of stuff....... *drools*. Makes you wonder if any of it ever produced anything.
I would be interested if only the duct-work was grounded.
