Man, FFOTS, you sure did! The dust collector by itself! Good stuff. 

I unintentionally got the score of the day a few days ago, after ordering an over the bucket forklift setup for the backhoe. 

I ordered the kit which was two forks, a 72" steel bar, and 4 big brackets that get welded to the loader bucket that the bar goes into to lift the forks which are run through with the bar. Welp, the warehouse seems to have screwed up because they sent 4 boxes of 4 brackets, and two bars (they thought one got lost in the mail). Luckily for me it's all crazy heavy stuff and the shipping is likely more than their value, so after a phone call to the vendor and they told me to keep it, I now have a bunch of extras!

Yowza.  You could divide that up into two or three lots and have the score of the day for a few days in a row!

I have one of the gripper push block setups, complicated but pretty safe on the table saw.  I will have to look into that angle jig setup.

Hey folks,

Last week I put in some bids for an online auction.  I had 4 winning bids.



 

10 foot conveyor on stand  $1.00






112 Metal buckets   $1.00

 

 

8 Jorgensen model 45 clamps, 13 various lengths Cincinnati Tool clamps and cart. $80.  The Jorgenson clamps are going for $30 each on ebay, Cincinnati clamps are real heavy duty, going for $60-100 each depending on length.

The last lot was eye opening.  There were 5 bins shown in the online listing and I bid $58 to win.  When I went to pick it up, I found there were 23 bins and that they came from a shop where they were making office furniture.  I got sandpaper, stainless steel screws, hinges of all sizes and varieties, many drawer slides, bolts, lag screws, locks with keys, magnetic door latches, plus much more.  Almost every bin was worth way more than $50.  Most were filled with metal things.  I haven't pumped that much metal since I was on the football team in high school.  The guy who runs the place threw in an old wood stove.  Take it he said.

I really need to get something I can move piles like this with. I messed around for about one day on an auction site before getting frustrated that I don't have a truck or trailer for the wife's vehicle, so I can't easily pick up junk like this, without renting something. I'm sure these scores are out there, and this is a great one rusticretreater, but not much stuff will fit in my Civic coupe.

That stove alone is worth it. Wire brush it, give it a quick coat of high temp paint, and it'll sell for rustic cabin decor.
Brings back memories, the old house I grew up in had an old cast iron stove similar to that (though much bigger) in the kitchen. The circles on top are removeable plates, and you need a special tool with a bent handle and a hook on the end to lift them out.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

I love lots like that in auctions.  Its like a grab bag that no one is really bidding on.  Has a lot of potential and not much risk with the low price.  Several years ago there was a shop going out of business that made stair parts including treads and railings.  There was a very large rack in the shop that had sections that were individual lots in the auction.  Each section was a different profile of stair rail.  One of the lots though was "everything on top of the rack".  I bid on that and won it for $63.  Of course I took my 18' trailer with me to load everything.  I wasn't quite sure what was up there from the pictures, but I could see numerous hand rails.  I ended up with a bunch of brazilian cherry handrails 16' long and numerous other rails including some that were walnut.  I got miles and miles of quarter round, cove moulding, and other long pieces of trim.  I sold all of the railings for around $1000 by the time it was all gone.  I use the trim pieces on almost every project I build.

It is a wood-stove lid-lifter tool, and search will discover several available (if one didn't come with that small wood stove).
As a kid, and reading about the posts in the water heater thread mentioning "on demand" hot water, for warm water bath had to first go down to that two-lid wood-stove in the basement and start a fire. The cold water pipes went through that wood stove and then on through the house for warm water. About 1951, we moved up to a propane-fired hot water heater. Still had stoker-fired coal furnace for heat and shoveled coal into the iron-fireman stoker.

You can use a big old pair of pliers too in a pinch. Also learned growing up that those plates can lift a little to give more room to really pack firewood in. (Don't try this at home). ;D

Well the stove is going in my new workshop coming May-June this year.  The door has the word liberty on it and a 1776 scheme, so that made it a grab it item.  And I can wire brush it with new unused wire brushes that were included in my purchase!  ;D

Yeah my wife didn't care much about the stuff as much as the bins.  SMH.  She did say I wouldn't need to buy any more hardware ever.

I took my Dakota pickup and my 17' car hauler/logging trailer and I was loaded down.  I took the long way home around the mountain and I still had to play a tune on the gears to get over the hills. I swear I could see the gas gauge moving while I was driving. :)

I'm pretty sure I could see my fuel guage moving while coming home from Indianapolis this past weekend.  I was pulling the 5th wheel into a strong headwind and getting 7mpg.  That was a costly trip home.

I called a friend of mine about a table saw last week that he had purchased for parts quite some time back.  He told me that I could have it.  He told me that it had a 3ph motor but once I got it home, I realized that it has a 1ph, 3hp Delta motor.  It has a mobile base and a nice table too.  I have not checked to see if the motor runs.  He also gave me a dust collector and a barrel.  It is also a 230v Delta.



 

 It also has a nice Biesemeyer fence.  Hopefully, I can arrange my shop to work this one in.

Nice.  It shouldn't take much to get it going, even if you have to spring for a motor.

My buddie had a street sweeper on a regular truck chassis.
Sold it to a guy who only wanted the truck.
Danny you want this?
Looks good for a sawmill or crusher project.
Engine has a nice timing cover with a pto drive for a hydraulic pump.
And belt drive with some serious bearings to handle side loads.
There is another pile coming that has a dump hoist and more hydraulic stuff.
I have been collecting parts for a while now to build a large bandsaw.
All I need now is some decent bandwheels in the 30-40 inch range.
I have some 30 inch pulleys but I think it would be best to find the right thing if I'm going to put any effort into the project.
First you make it work, then you trick it out!
