Looks like somebody in Texas is going to be a happy wood and or metal worker! Sadly the bids at this point will become MUCH larger at the end.

Many “school” machines have been abused beyond common sense; I would make sure I checked them out very carefully before even bidding.

Might have been from an excellently maintained shop too, you will only know after checking them out.

Good luck.

Those Newman planers are bomb-proof.
It might sell relatively cheap due to the
high weight and difficulty of moving it.

I was looking at one school auction near
me awhile back. The auction specified
that machines must be picked up on a
specific day and there would be no forklift
on site. I think for that reason some of
the machines went for lower prices.

Have your say...
