Entire Shop For Sale
Mar 21st, 2011 at 10:29pm
 
I have been contacted by the sister of a former turner.  The turner, Mr. Hawkins, is in a nursing home in TN suffering with advanced Alzheimer's.  It has gotten to a point where he does not even remember turning or working with wood.  So, his sister and brother in law are selling his shop in preparation for moving to TN themselves.  All prices are negotiable and items bought will need to be picked up by the buyer outside Cloverport, KY.  I can give you very easy instructions if you need them.

Items for sale are:
Jet mini (older blue model) - $100

5 chucks (one is a 3 jaw) - $350 for the collection  2-3 of these are Nova's.  All work nicely.  A set of Cole jaws included with the largest chuck.

There are approximately 40 turning tools.  Some are used up, others are in great shape.  Some home made hollowing tools.  One arm brace hollower.  I didn't get a full catalog of the tools other than how many.  I would think that if one averaged $20/tool you would come out smelling like a rose. - $800

Delta 1" strip sander - $50

Approximately 3 pick-up loads of wood, blanked out and ready to turn.  Included is walnut, cherry, poplar, hickory, apple, locust, cedar, etc.  - $700

All prices are negotiable and lots can be divided if need be.
They really want this equipment and wood to go to folks who care about it.
You will need to pick up items yourself in Cloverport, KY.
If you are interested in any or all of the above, please contact Don Hardcastle, (270)788-6643, donsr@bbtel.com.

If I can answer any questions here, I will do what I can.

Thank you for looking.

Too bad I am a 2 day drive away. I would get the wood and divide it up for use/re-sale to WR members at cost.

If there are 8 or 10 people out there willing to invest, it might make it reasonable. Any takers???

You think they would ship the Jet mini if I gave them my UPS# or if I did a call tag?

Not sure, Ron.  They may well not have a clue on how to crate it up for safe shipment.  I'm not sure I could.  I would be willing to do the best I could though.  You might contact them and ask.  I'm willing if they are.

Just spoke with Mr. Hardcastle.  Everything EXCEPT the wood is sold. 
Folks, don't let all this wood go to waste.  It is dry and ready to be turned into hundreds of beautiful bowls.  If I had the bucks I would grab it all and either turn it or resell it for a profit.  Have some tax money coming soon and may well do just that. 
Give me or the Hardcastles a call. LET'S MAKE A DEAL!
