Default How much would you expect to pay for one of these??

I am talking about a Jet shop dust collector model number DC 650. They retail at about $350 - $375, I found this at an estate sale. It looks as though someone spilled something concrete like in color on the bags (no damage to the bags, just minor discoloration), and the paint is chipped on one of the edges, but I think I may have done that transporting it home. Other than that, it shows no signs of use what-so-ever, the impeller doesn't even have any saw dust on it. I did test it before I bought it, and then again when I got it home I ran it for about 15 minutes, this picture was taken with the dust collector running. I dam near passed out when I saw the price tag on it. I couldn't even bring myself to try to haggle the price of only.........



wait for it.........



wait for it.........

You weren't really asking if that was a good deal were you? I think you already knew that.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Now, take all that money you saved and invest in a good filter.

You really do not want to have all the fine particles under 5 microns blowing back into your shop. Factory dust bags are garbage.

Most of us are using the Wynn Environmental Filter Cartridges.

Nice score.


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.
