Hi fellow sawdust munchers,
I read a post by Rob V about his buys at an auction and I thought I'd chime
in with mine.
This fall our local Ace went out of business and had a huge auction. Among
truckloads of various small goods and tools and fasteners and shelving we
won, I landed some wild ones.
I got about $9-10,000 worth of commercial adjustable shelving for about
$400! I had to wait until the end of the auction to get it. (over 11 hours).
This stuff is still in the McMaster Carr catalog, so we knew what we were
I got a Powermatic Model 65 for $125 that I'm keeping. It's a little rusty,
I wished I had bought the most amazing RAS I have ever seen. It was the size
of a horse and went for $10. I couldn't figure out how I would move the
thing or I would have bid.
I also got a Safety Speed Cut H5 vertical panel saw that I would like to
sell. I couldn't let it go! If I don't hear anything from our locals or
anyone else soon, it'll go on eBay.
I also have another Safety Speed Cut H4 vertical panel saw for sale, that I
had professionally converted to something a smidgen larger than a H5. This
one was in my shop for years and I don't need it anymore as I have just
restored an old Hendrick horizontal panel saw.
