  • Freebies for local in need?

    Cleaning out some idle tool boxes and I have a small pile of HSS, brazed carbide, and lantern style tool holders that I want to get rid of. If there is a hobbyist in need and local to the Milwaukee area I will be happy to give them to you. I will be keeping just a few pieces of brazed and HSS for WEDMing or grinding custom tooling, but the vast bulk is leaving. They will be in boxes, loose. The caveat - you have to take it all. I am not splitting it up or letting people cherry pick. What you do with the pile is up to you after that. If no response in few days, I will list it on other forums and CL.

              First box is full. 9" x 9" x 4.5" filled with HSS, Brazed Carbides, Lantern holders of two sizes and various styles, and I even threw in a number of inserted holders. ( probably 10- 15 of them. maybe more ) ( 1/2" and 5/8" shank ) Going to go clean out all the excess HSS end mills as well. That will likely be whole other box in itself. FEMs and BEMs.

                Could probably be talked into giving a Snow tapping head ( cap 0 - 1/4" ) to same person, too... It's the great 5S egress of 2017...

                  Too far for me, or I would have been on it already. I hope somebody takes you up on this great offer.

                    man, I wish I was closer, but even then I wouldn't have conscionably been able to take it all as I've no need for that much tooling. In the very unlikely event that no one closer claims it, I'd be happy to pay postage on any mill tooling you want to get rid of. Probably more hassle than it's worth for you, but an option nonetheless! thanks!

                      Offer stands in spite of the smart *ss remark & I haven't been to the new shop but they are lacking the most on metalworking machine so I plan to donate some spare machines & you can ship directly to them so no one accuses me of using or selling. Reginal priority flat weight large boxes are the cheapest way if you decide & I'll just pay shipping to Kazoo.

                        Zahnrad, good on ya to pay it forward. Good choice on the venue also. On PM it would have generated some odd responses I bet.
                        Best,
                        Joe

                              What a beautiful human gesture. Even if you can't use them yourself to do what your doing is something very special almost spiritual in nature. I don't quite understand what is happening at this moment. I need to read it more carefully have they gone yet. Don't misunderstand m I wouldn't take them myself even if I lived nearby. which I definitely do not LOL .Simply I don't need them and for me to take any would be just greed, I do hope they go to a good home or even a club . Keep on running brother. Alistair
