I got an entire woodworking workshop for $600.
I thought it was:
220 10" Table Saw
and a helping hand and some clamps.
IT was also:
Several hundred dollars in specialized jigs.
A table saw with a full contractor sized cast iron top, with a $200 after market fence.
Three routers, including one palm sized.
A Craftsman branded dremel
A cutting tool with full speed control.
6 pipe clamps, multiple c clamps.
a Scroll saw
a trailer bottom of wood, mostly 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch plywood. Nothing fancy but good scrap.
Cabinitry router bits
A Delux Incra jig.
Really almost everything but a band saw. He’s a college football coach, and he got into woodworking in the 90’s and hasn’t touched it for at least 7-8 years. So there is some surface rust, and it’s possible one or two things have locked up. It was sitting in the middle of his 8 car two story climate controlled garage all kind of piled together, I’m not sure it had moved since he moved in 7-8 years ago. There was no workshop area set up in the garage or anything. The brands are Ryobi, Craftsman, and Delta so it’s not crap and in many cases it appears he bought the best brand for the tool at the time.
Once I finish my garage wiring project (Waiting on a house to sell to fund the upgrade to 200 amp service in the house and run a line over there) then I have no excuse to not finally get all my projects rolling, this was a huge score, the friend who drove out the hour and a half to go get it at 9 at night and I are figuring new it was easily $3k.
The odd part is that there are no bits. No spare drill bits, no router bits, no extra blades. I’m assuming they are all in a box in his basement or in storage or something.
