          Always curious where since pricing is dependent on location. Prices are cheaper on the coasts than in the Midwest.

          Were they updating or closing?

          If they were closing, I am sorry to hear of another school shop disappearing.

          Would you consider the pricing to be what you would expect for that area of the country?

            This is like saying you went to a car auction where Chevy Cavaliers went for $2,000 and Ford Mustangs went for $3,000...i.e. not enough details about year, features, and condition to have any meaning to those that weren't there.

            At auctions, there are $500 Brideports and there are $9,000 Bridgeports...the two being very different creatures...one being 1960's step pully with drill holes in the table, worn ways and 4 coats of green tractor paint, the other being pristine mid 90's vari speed with DRO, in as new condition.

              They closed the shop.

              And they were all basic units and varied as much as your used cars, though one mill had a dro. there was a EZ track that went for $31000.

                Here again, there are many different forms of "EZ Trak" but I can't think of any that are worth anywhere near $31,000 these days. Typical auction price for a 1990 Bridgeport combination manual/CNC mill with 3 axis EZ Trak control, with in nearly new condition is in the $8 to $15,000 range !!

                    Bought two steel shelving units (including any tooling on them) for $50. Sold them by phone from the auction site for $25, really didn't want to move them and sure didn't need 'em.

                    Ended up with two Ettco 2B's & one TapMatic 90-X. Not a bad day when $25 buys $2,500 worth of equipment.

                    Amazing what people don't want.

                      Takes two to tango, just hope the "almost as dumb" runner up, wasn't a ghost.

                        Yep,saw an auction company do that with a big radial drill once.That thing was high milage,it went trought three states and one time zone before they gave up and sold it for $100.

                        I just need one more tool,just one!
