I have to sell my beloved Lucas 8 by the end of the weekend, and for CASH, so if you can't handle that,  please don't get involved. If it doesn't sell at this price, I may still be on the market, but it certainly won't be at this price.

The price is $5,500.

Here's what you will get:

Lucas 8-28 in very good condition. It starts right up, cuts true, and is complete. I believe it has about 280 hours on the motor, but I will check that within the next day or two. It certainly isn't more than that.

An almost brand-new slabber, only used on one small job. The chain has been sharpened once, and has a lot of life left in it. With this, you'll be able to take slabs off the largest of logs. I cut several that were 14' long and 4 “ thick, and they came out beautifully. If I recall correctly, you'll be able to slab up to 60” wide, and I have certainly cut 48” wide!
.
Two or three blades, all of which need re-tipping. A supply of tips will be included, along with the jig for re-tipping.

Tool box, with diamond grinder and all the other tools I took to jobs.

I have a 'tune-up' kit, too, and this includes oil and air filters, belts and other items. I'll check on exactly what's in the kit when I see the mill tomorrow.

In short, this mill is ready to go to work (after you re-tip a blade or two.)  I am only selling this because of a serious financial hit I've just taken, and I will certainly be buying another identical mill just as soon as I can.

Photos will be posted very soon, and feel free to contact me through this site for more information.

No, you can't buy it for $4,000 or anything silly like that. This is a real deal at the list price, and there's no point in me selling it for anything less than the asking price.

The mill is located near Albany, NY, and could be brought to New York City. I could possibly deliver if you're near either of these locations.

Is the airplane in your avatar photo a Ryan STA with a Lambert engine?
And if so, is it for sale?

Yes, it's a Ryan STA with a Lambert engine. Send me $10,000 cash, and I'll tell you where to pick it up.

What's a Ryan STA with a Lambert engine?

Seriously, I love aviation, but have no idea what the plane is. I was at a fly-in at Floyd Bennett Field a couple of years ago, and someone snapped me leaning up against it. I wish it were mine. Actually, I hankered after a glider since I was 5. I guess I'm about due......

Thanks for your kind thoughts about the money-crunch, Paul.

Well, it is a Ryan with a five cylinder Lambert radial engine. It's a mid '30s airplane and worth about $100k.

As of this morning, the mill is still available, but there is some interest.

I have replied to everyone that has sent me a pm, and supplied my phone number (I believe) to all. If you didn't get an email from me, please check your spam folder. I also have a few photos now, so pm me with an email address and I'll be happy to send them out.

A correction from my earlier post - the engine has only 199.8 hours, not 280. I set the mill up Wednesday morning, and she started right up, so she's good to go (sob......).

I will be showing the mill on Saturday in Stephentown, NY (about 20 miles east of Albany). I will be happy to discuss the mill in detail in a phone conversation with you, and also let you know about others who are interested in the mill. I am not looking to waste anyone's time here, but I am looking to close a deal this weekend.

The mill has been sold. Thank you all for your interest.

I'm happy that the mill has gone to a good home - the buyer is a lovely man who is going to use it well, and I am sure will have years of enjoyment from it. Hopefully, he'll make a bundle of cash, too!

And I want to publicly thank the people of this forum for, once again, demonstrating the humantiy of the majority. I have received best wishes for my difficult period, prayers, and even an offer to wire-transfer money for the mill before we had even worked out how to get it to Texas.

You're a good bunch of guys and gals, and I'll be back with you again soon.

Malcolm
