For Auction: Bench Mounted Chain Mortiser

I hadn't intended to float this before the group onna 'count of it being set up as a "pick up only" (eBay Kiss of Death) but anyone who's interested, got a need or want and just might not be able to live without this might not care what it costs to ship. Hell I'd consider a short road trip if the buyer were localish (Chicagoland) and didn't mind meeting at some local eatery up or down I-94.
Here's the auction.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item%61521019
The total weight for the machine sits at about 200 lbs. It can be broken down and shipped in 3 or 4 cartons. I suspect the worst case would be one of the cartons weighing in the 70-80 range.
Item ships from zip code 53051
OBrec.wood: I'm selling and saving for a compressor. So far I have the field narrowed down to a Gast, an Ingersol Rand and a Rol-Air.

Never seen one of those before. Looks like a glorified chain saw. Can you set it up to carve bears?

Oh yeah. They go back some time also. Powermatic used to make one that makes this one look portable.

Model 15 I believe. Ross?

More like a *precision* chain saw. Smaller in fact. Makita (and others) still make them for timber framers.

It'll carve anything that'll stand still long enough though I wouldn't want to be in the same room at the same time.
UA100, wondering why anyone would want to go at a bear with a wee little 1/4" X 1" chain saw...

For all I know it could be the same one. The way stories change when 'chines change hands you never know.
