Yes Location, Use Facebook market place, Craigslist.
Or even better go to a local Woodworking store with photos, Woodcraft, Rockler, etc.

Boy that would be neat for someone just starting a tablesaw and a radial arm saw and a person would have everything!

What base does the 37-220 jointer have under it?
Have you set prices for these machines yet?
Do you have any pictures?

machines have not sold. I will get some pictures up today. most of these machine need some TLC. planner and joiner need new blades other than that they work as they should. band saw needs new rubber on the wheels and a new blade. lathe needs many pieces. We would not be replacing these machine if we had the time and personal to put the TLC into them. I like many of you believe these are great machines. Plus I think it would be awesome to have the original equipment still running in our shop.

Best place to list them would be That is Old Wood Working Machines. But you have to read the rules carefully. They have specific rules on … well, everything. Especially selling but that is the center of the Old Wood Working Machines Universe. That is all we talk about there.

As others have said, Facebook Market place and Craigslist are also good options…. depending on you location.
