I read the want ads under "Machinery/Tools" looking for a possible good
deal. Tonight was the night.
10" table saw with two carbide blades, dado blade $100 or BO
Drill Press $20 or bo
New wood turning lathe $35 or bo
6" Jointer $35 or bo
I figured I can get a good buy and add a jointer and lathe to my arsenal. So
why am I say a gloat never to be? There was no phone number or address in
the ad! I'm hoping it repeats tomorrow with corrections.
Either that, or it's all stolen. Those prices are just *too* good. I let
my no longer needed 10" DP go for a ridiculously low price just to get rid
of it (and to find it a new owner I approved of... can't let my babies go
to just anyone, even after I outgrow them), but I wouldn't settle for less
$35 for a lathe? FOR A LATHE???
Nah. Someone is just evil, that's all.

The ad appeared again today with the phone number. The tablesaw and
workbench are still left. If the bench is still there on Monday, I may take
a ride to go get it. He says it was built from plans, is solid oak with a
2" top, has vices and benchdogs. For $50, it would be worth it just for the
He sounds like an older gent and he is moving to a smaller house with no
garage. He has not done any woodwork in a couple of years. The bench could
be worth the 150 mile round trip though.
