Check Industrial Recovery Services auction site. There were a lot of auctions a few years back in PA and IL a few years back. Perhaps they are still going on with plants liquidating or just getting rid of old equipment. You can also check on owwm.org in the buy/sell section for that kind of older equipment.

If you’re on Facebook join the group “fans of owwm” and watch posts there. I saw a 24” Yates posted just a few days ago.

If it was the one for $750 from Indiana it was sold before I called.

It was in Indiana and didn’t have a price listed. Are you already in that group then?

Oh and I’m in the freight so if you want help/quotes for getting one shipped to you just holler at me

Nice 24” Powermatic located in Tucson Arizona.
Unusually complete with knife grinder included:

The 24” design was introduced in 50’s.
That green color means it was made before 1970 when they changed to darker emerald green metallic.

Hopefully you are registered user and surf the OWWM.org BYOD classified forums?

There is a 24” Fay & Egan Model 560 listed for sale in central VA.
At $1500, wont last long. Have to be registered OWWM.org user to see this link.

Cheers!
