  • Deal or No Deal?

    I have an opportunity to purchase an old public school's work bench. (Looks like one I used in shopclass when I was a kid.)

    The Table is 5'x5' maple top that is about 3" thick. The top will need to be planed/sanded down. The top sits on a Cabinet that I would say is about 3.5' x 3.5'. There is no hardware (vise's) that come with it. They are asking $150.00. Is this a good deal or not?

    sounds like an excellent deal. 5x5 is a perfect size for laying up large patterns and projects on, and it sounds beefy with lots of room for clamping to the table and for adding vises and bench dogs. wish i could find a deal like that. you are not likely to find just a work top of close to that size for that money, let alone with a cabinet

      The top alone is worth WAY more than $150. just think of all the turning blanks and pen blanks you could cut it up into

          Sounds like a deal to me. As a quick FYI for the rest of us who aren't as lucky, Woodcraft is having a special on a decent workbench for 129.99.
          1 1/16 Nordic Birch top, 19 1/2 X 53, benchdogs, tail vise. Tough deal to beat.

                Not worth a ****. But I can use it for firewood. I'll send you the 150 Bucks and you can send it to me! I'll even pay shipping.

                  Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                  He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                  I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
