Well- I bought it!
« on: January 05, 2006, 09:19:29 AM »
You guys aren't gonna believe this. 

Update on the prior thread... guy calls me after weeks and tells me he had lost my number, (after I left a message that I wanted to take a look at his Woodmizer), that he needs money, and wants to sell his 1993 LT40 HD 25hp Onan 6000 hours. This is after I thought his was unavailable and made up my mind to buy a Peterson, and even sent in a deposit.

So now (day before yesterday) I travel down south, check into a motel and meet the guy the next morning with cash. The original asking price was $12000... including 3 farm jacks, peavy's screw jacks, pile of blades (don't know how many are good), parts, big prybars, etc. Well over the phone this second time around, he says he'll come down to $8500.  Said it had a new Onan engine replacement 6 months ago.

JP,

I know you, you are the guy I always seem to be just one step behind.

All kidding aside, good for you and the best of luck with your new mill.

JP I like your stile!  I got a feeling we have attended the same negotiating school.  ;D

Only one concern if the thought of drugs or alcohol was in play.  IS THE MILL STOLEN?

WM will know as soon as you give them the serial number.  For your sake I hope its not.

Stop!  Thief!     :o

Well, let me see how this works out..... $3500 for the mill.... $2000 for new engine.... $3000 would replace or upgrade almost anything I could think of.  $8500 max investment to have a '95 mill in excellent shape.   I would consider leaving my deposit down on the swinger.  With your good luck, you will need both mills to keep up with all the business that is bound to head your way.  :D

Well he said it had the manual with the ser.#  also the W/M card with the guys name and ser#...

So surely its not stolen...

Heres and Idea, Why not have a list here some place where we could list stolen sawmills and related large item equipment  ??? ??? ???  

Might keep someone from makeing the mistake of buying stolen equipment and more important the victim getting their property back...

Whatever,  Have a nice Day,   Jerry

Congraulations!  Welcome to the Wood-Mizer group!

Oh yea,  one other thing you may want to check out  At $3500 and meeting him at some location other than his home  Did you check with Wood-Mizer to see if it shows up on their list of stolen mills?

I know a guy that bought a used Wood-Mizer from a guy that was the owner.  When he went to get it registered with Wood-Mizer,  he found out it was listed as stolen.  The owner had said it was stolen and collected the insurance money and then sold it. 

I dont know what happened to the guy that committed the fraud but the buyer escaped prosecution for accepting stolen goods but he lost the mill and his money. :'(

It is absolutely sumpthing you should look into. I was surpriced after talking with the V.P. of Norwood what a problem stolen mills is. Thats why they wont see parts or even a manual to just anyone until they have tracked the path of ownership and determined that the mill was actually with a rightful owner.

Wood-Mizer will certainly help. get the serial number and check it out, at the same time., you can get your customer ID. number.

I'm in the system at Wood-Mizer now.  No stolen Mill, just a lucky one cause it's gonna have a nice new home... :)

Just bought a ton of parts and a box of blades down in Sheridan, and a Lap-siding attachment.  Gonna order a new engine when I decide what's the best one.

Hey guys,  don't you know it's after 2:00 in the morning?  We've got sawing to do in a couple 3-4 hours. ::)

I'd replace it with one of the new Kolher 28 fuel injected engines.  WM should have a swap out kit.

Well done on your purchase...or should I say "steal" :-X
Knowing the prices of such mills you got onto a goody there.
I agree with Bibbyman and get the 28hp on that thing. (maybe he can even show you how to get the thing humming.) 8)
All the best with your mill.

Try plug wires on the mill, could very well level out the running. Somewhere between changing wires and coil, which up and died, got my onan running slick, I was thinking the engine was about to give up to.
