Was at the scrapyard today they had several owwm a pm drill press, pm planer, delta 8" jointer with cast base this is the one I wanted. They wanted .30 a pound someone else got it before me. :cry:
kind of sad to see nice tools treated like this. Good for the scrap yard to save them did want a extra .20 a pound compare to normal scrap

He was not sure if it was all sold said to check next week. The lathe might not sell it was old needed a lot to get running. There was another craftsman jointer might not sell.

OMG....that cast iron base with the pot belly cover is about $300. Looks like a drill press in the foreground....wow...kind of sad that someone didn't post them on CL as a way of just getting rid of them. That Powermatic planer might be worth something but they are not in high demand because they weigh so much.

That's just an amazing picture of sad old arn waiting to be turned into a car or something.

looks like an Oliver lathe. Even rough would be a good find.

Definitely an Oliver lathe, Ken. Early model from the 20's-30's with a Kimball motor head and what I like to call a Fez-style top vs the dome that came later. I hope whoever got there before Jacob is restoring them!
