Default Set-Up Bars

Report post

Posted 23 minutes ago (edited)

I recieved this in my email this morning,I do not know this person ,he addressed our club.I thought I would pass it on to you guys as the topic of Set-Up Bars comes up occasionally.



Hello I have some product to offer,





Due to some events my grandfather passed away a while back. He was a professional wood worker amongst other things. He created these Brass Set-Up Bars with a wooden container just before passing. There are 105 packaged Set-Ups Bars in each box. 13 boxes. Each box weighs around 60lbs. Would love to have a few, but have no need for all of these. Most Set-Up Bars online go for 11-17 a pop without a container and 25 with. Feel free to make an appropriate offer. Willing to discuss a discount price and shipping for bulk purchases as well. Not looking to charge full price on these by any means. Attached below is some photographs.




Thanks for your time!

He who dies with the most set up bars wins.

Man, that's a lot of sets. You would think a store would buy the whole lot ..... for the right price.

Nice stuff.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

The set that I bought many years ago from our forum's founders at a woodworking show came in a block of wood just like those. The size sequence is even the same. Could this guy be the source for their product?

I use mine frequently, and have wished that they came in a lidded box, but so far I haven't taken the time to build one for my set.

The full boxes of 105 sets is the killer. I'd be happy to take a small carton of say 10 sets. Shipping, brokerage, and duties would be the main obstacle, other than the quantities for us up here N. of 49.
Maybe Cricket could buy them up and give them away when posters reach a certain number of posts...

These are the least expensive ones I found with a quick search...

But no storage box in the deal, and they look a bit rough(?)

Made in the USA. Manco Inc

Now part of Henkel Manco who make Locktite and Duro super glue among other things.

These were probably made before the merger of the two companies.

That means Rainman Rick gets the whole lot. hheehee
Area code is western WA, Dan so shipping might not be too bad, you might be able to drive down and pick them up.

It'd be cheaper to pay all the shipping costs than to take the ferry (and gas) to get across to the Lower Mainland.

Would that number just happen to be around 12,500?

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.

The sad thing is that you probably wouldn't be able to resell them locally for much more than $10 a pop (about $1000 a case). If you bought them at $500-$600 a case that would be a decent return after shipping, etc, but you have to find 100 buyers locally.

Scrap price is about $1.60/lb right now, so a box would net you $75 or so.

That being said, it would be nice to have a few sets around the shop, so I don't have to keep carrying the ones I already have from the table saw to the router table....
