            Flylo, if it wasn't across the state , I might be interested in the punch press...but I am in no position to do that right now....oh and you suck....but seriously, I think what happens in alot of these circumstance, (tools/equipment free or cheap) the owners see that the people reciving these items will appreciate their property & will give it a proper home, so that it may be used....that being said, we will all come to that point sooner or later, so please remember that when your stuff lays seldom used , and someone you mentored, and or know will use the tools/equipment , and keep our hobby/vocation alive, please make it affordable , and or gift it to them...it may bring you more satisfaction than you think.....Shawn

              I just can't stand to see good useable things scapped. This is part of our heritage & history & when they're gone they're gone. 10 years ago these tools brought good money, now I just have to beat the scapper. So many tools, so little time. This shaper came out of Studebaker. I also have tools from Clark Equip, Cummings & GM. And yes when I'm done I want them to go to deserving people, if any are left that enjoy using manual machine tools.

                            But I never said I was the richest man. Anyway it's the "thrill of the hunt" with me. I don't show 10% of what I get. I just thought the old shaper & little mill was cool.
                            Sasquatch if you we're closer we take the 30' trailer & really clean up.

                            Swawnspeed, I think most of the guys I buy from would rather me pay scrap price & me haul it rather than them haul it to the scrapyard. This shaper was bought 25+ years ago for 1 job by this guys dad who owned the machine shop. He's gone, the son just welds & didn't know anything about it except where his dad bought it & he wanted $150 for it. Not even how to turn it on or how it works. No sentimental value here. A little mumbling when we loaded it & he relalized he guessed low on the scrap weight. I love it, it's just out of his way & cash in his hand. We both win.
                            PS did you see the 10" vise on it? I can't see any wear on anything I wiped off. Even the belts ride right where belts should in the pulleys & are not checked or brittle. It didn't see much use & may not be from Studebaker as he just said most of the tools his dad bought there. He opened the shop in 1962.
