Deal of the Weekend

Long story short, got this one for a mere $55.00 this past weekend.   Yeah, I stole it.  I actually picked it up for someone I know who needed it.

A nice old Delta...  Gee, since you're in it for scrap price, carter guides, blade tension release, riser block and a new 1HP motor.  Oh, and new tires. Wink  A good adjustable fence would be nice for resawing.  You'll be in it about 25 cents on the dollar and have a couple lifetimes machine.

Go ahead.  The wife won't mind...  Roll Eyes

I've been working with a new turner for the last 2 months or so.  He came over one night just to try it out, the next day he went and purchased the new Delta mini, and a starter set of benjamin's best.  Having played with it, I have to say it's pretty sweet for a smaller lathe.  Since then there has been $'s flying everywhere, lol.  He has picked up some Thompson's, mandrel's, chuck, grinder, you know the routine.

The biggest thing eluding him was a bandsaw.  This hit on Craigslist last week, and within 20 minutes I went and took a look, called him, and worked the guy down from $75 to $55.  It did need some new tires (ordered the next day).  I spent a few hrs getting it cleaned up, and to my surprise all appears to be in fine working condition.  I'll have to check out the tension spring once we get the tires on, but the rest is in really great shape.  Needless to say, my friend is extremely happy with the purchase, and out another 85 bucks : )

On another note:  I finally found a complete manual for my 58 yr old Atlas Power King 18" jig saw.  YAY!  I know it has nothing to do with turning,  it is purely sentimental.  It is the only tool I have from my Grand Dad who died when I was 3.  From what I have been told, and seen in pictures, he was a master in the world of wood.
