Sweetheart of a deal...
« on: May 06, 2003, 05:19:00 AM »
A friend of mine runs one of those woodmizers.. He started into the industry a couple years after I did. He had purchased a Nyle kiln and a few other things along the way to complement his lumber production.

A couple years ago he purchased a used woodmizer vacuume kiln for 6g's Canadian. When he was moving it he was wondering why it was so heavy. When he got power to it, he found that it was 3/4 full of FAS 4/4 red oak.  :o

He found that he was spending more time maintaining this kiln than it was worth. The machine had paid for itself though through the course of him owning it. Another contributing factor for him selling it was that it was in his garage at his house... Something about the house... the house was appraised at 170 g's but, because of the hill it was on they were able to purchase it for 100 g's. Nice shack but, they keep a tote board for vehicles that wound up in the ditch and ones that were wrecked in the driveway...

Anyway... he made contact with a fellow that bought is woodmizer kiln. He got what he paid for it originally plus a couple thousand feet of Cuban Walnut and Pico wood. He figures he is ahead by roughly 16 g's !!!!!!!! Cuban Walnut is going for $14 to 16 a foot Pico is about $12 a foot!!!

He dropped by lastnight while I was watching the Sens embarass the Flyers. He had an 8x8x8 of this Cuban Walnut on the back of his truck. He told me to lift it... By the black and tan this stuff is heavy, and it was 10%mc!!!

Good deal for my buddy and I'm happy for him.

I'm thinking that I should be talking to this fellow that bought Mark's kiln and see if they need a planer in Cuba, seeing as I got me one of those to sell.

Bark removal prior to removing. Big deal? Little deal? No deal?
