Hi Bruce
Not sure about the lathes but it seems like he’s asking what you could buy the equipment for new?

This isn’t even high end hobby equipment. I sold a table saw just like the one he is offering for $275 and a Craftsman radial arm saw that is a little older than the one he is selling for $100. An improved version of the Ryobi bandsaw can be bought new for $139 brand new at Home Depot.

That is a strange ad. I agree with Art, with the possible exception of the lathe I don’t even consider the other stuff high end hobbyist stuff. Maybe that lathe is worth more than I suspect.

Plenty of buckets. Those must be worth a couple hundred each! LOL. I agree the lathe is worth something, but the rest is costing him more to store it than it’s worth.

That whole setup isn’t even worth $1,000 let alone $10,000
Just my 2 cents, but you have to be kidding to ask for that kind of money!

Hi Jim. I’m like any woodworker that knows power tools. Craiglist is a continuous comedy hour when I see some of the ads. Not sure how much that lathe cost.

A woodworker can take $10K and outfit himself, or herself, a nice shop with new equipment from Grizzly.

Hey Mike, if you’re interested in his buckets he might cut you a deal on them lol.

Almost Turnkey WoodWorking Shop available.”

“Almost” being the operative word in his listing…

I think what he needs is a cleaning service.

I’m curious what they were producing with that setup. I wouldn’t mind having the lathe.

Looks like they produced a lot of clutter, and he said his partner was a crook.

I contacted the individual and this is what he said.

I am willing to negotiate to a true market value. I had to sue my previous partner to recover the equipment (he was a crook) and now just want to liquidate. Most of the value IS in the lathe and I understand if it’s too much for the rest. The lathe itself was about $9k new with the copy attachment so that’s where the baseline for the figure came from.

If you are interested or know someone who is I am happy to consider ANY offers. I tried to restart the business and it didn’t happen so now I just need out.

Laguna CL1200 Copy Lathe. What other attachments he might have bought for it he doesn’t say. According to this price it’s an indexing and copy lathe also.

Manufacturer Laguna Tools
SKU MT0CL1200
Price $5,965.00

I’ve heard his crooked business partner story a lot of times.

I’d have to agree with what other have said, the tools other than the lathe are worth very little, ~$500 as a package deal would be about right (minus the lathe). Even if the lathe was $9K new, lets say $10K with the copy attachment, an emergency sale puts the used lathe value, if it works correctly at around $1K. The rest thrown in for free for the effort of cleaning out the storage unit so the guy doesn’t have to pay another month of rental which it sounds just like what he’s trying to do.
