Story of my life! One day a really nice (insert tool name) will show up within 300 miles...

Nice Buy, to bad it wasn't for me. I paid $200 bucks for a small Atlas, plus my brother-in-law and I had to clean out this old guys collection of junk (for the last 30 years) just to get to it. Phoenix AZ., summer time, 110F.

Too bad you guys don't live closer,they litter the landscape here.I bought one for $100 for the gearbox and vise,left the rest of it out on the scrap pile.I think I know where 10-12 shapers are sitting right now,shame nobody wants them.

It would be a good road trip for me this summer. I live in SE Iowa, and can "Huck Finn" it from here. Hook us up, Smitty

You telling me I have to drive down there for beers or sumpin'?

Yeah, I can find lots of monsters cheap - I want a table top unit...

C'mon, WierdSci, hook a brother up!

Well there is one in pieces in my yard that can be had for free.One outside a buddy of mines shop that can be had cheap and three at work that can be had cheap,two even work http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

That would be South Misasippy http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Oh and it will be a summer road trip too,it will be then before the ground is firm enough for a forkin lift to stand up on http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

All of the above are in the 2,000lb + range Dave,don't got no stinking dinky shapers here http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Now that's just too clean to be a shaper http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif You need more grease,oil,dirt in general and a couple pounds of nice blue chips http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
