    Default Craigslist chuckle for the day...

    Found this on Craigslist.
    Never heard of a CNC bandsaw before, but here's a beauty.
    Looks like it's been out in the rain for a while.
    Cheap too !!

    CNC saws are regularly used in production. The logic is - Why pay an operator to chop a million+ pieces of stock to length when a machine can do it all automatically?

    If the saw operates and it has working auto functionality, $5k may be considered cheap in that part of the country (dont quote me on that plz, I said may). Unfortunately, the pics dont show much other than the actual iron. I dont have any experience with Wiltons, but if I still had a big shop I would love another Hyd-Mech horizontal in that size range. I paid $2k for the last one with zero automatic functionality other than hydraulic up and down, though it was in very nice (plug in and play) condition, and many friends thought I got a "steal."

    It looks like it was ridden hard and put away wet.

    If you want $5,000 it has to look like $5,000.

    I 'flipped' cars in my youth (buy low - sell high). Appearance will get you the money. This guy is a drug internet addict - no work, no effort, but wants to cash in big.

    insight into the frailties of the human mind. Its like it just wouldn't occur them leaving that it outdoors to rust to crap would affect the value <crazy>
