Default He shoots and scores

Went to the Ga Estate sale I had posted about yesterday and bought the shaper that was listed and this as well. Its a nice table with an unusual fence/vac system and a lot of acc, Total for all was $350. A good deal in my book since I,m selling my other router table for $185 that I had previously posted here and I sold my 43-120 yesterday for $200, So net outlay is a $35 profit and now I have all the shaper bits and acc. that I never had before as well as a nicer router table w/3 more routers than I had before.I like that vintage look of the nicely polished B+D Router and the table has a PC 690 mounted in it as well as a bunch of other jigs ,etc that I,ll figure out as I go along. Oh yeh and the Delta 1172 thats up for grabs for the highest bidder + actual shipping cost(Gloating profusely). Heres some pics, enjoy

Hi Tommy

That's some very old gear, 1940's I would say but it looks like most of is still usable ,not taking the router bits/shaper cutters in account ..most look shot

The only downside that I can see with this snag is the router mind you it's an old industrial B&D back from the day when Black and Decker still made tools worth having. So good on you for catching this one.

Retirement is easy, but You really have to work at it.

Tommy, your table is built from a design published by Fine Woodworking magazine. There is a company in Canada that builds them for around $250 (rt1000.com) and most people mistakenly credit Norm with this design from his NYW table.

I think you got a very nice table at a decent price. I love bargain hunting too.

That is a very solid looking tenoning jig. Very nice all round.

Cheers

Thanks all, Wish I could keep the tenoning jig as its a heavy duty unit, probably weighs in about 40lbs but I just have no real need for it so its on Craigslist for sale already @ $250.00 plus shippin if anyones interested,Overall I,m very pleased with the table its solidly built and has a ton of acc. that I,ll have to figure out

$250 may be optimistic for a tenoning jig, with so many Chinese ones around under $100.
I recently made one to the Shopnotes design for a tenth of that.

Cheers

I understand this may seem a tad overpriced, but these when available sell for that and more on E-Bay all the time, I,ve even seen one sell for $310 there last yr so I,m just hoping someone here or at 2 other websites I have it posted on will snatch up the classic old arn jig to pass on to their grandchildren as my grandchildren are all girls(love of my life) and have no interest in woodworking
