Cabinet shop closing down in Oakwood, Ga. and almost new equipment being auctioned off. Looks like they’ve got some nice Grizz and Powermatic stuffs.

I may find my way down there to that one.

I bet that between the long delivery times and sky high freight costs they may get a premium for some of that. Even if it is only three hours away I would need a good discount to justify the drive and hassle of transport & packing. Only a couple of items I could use if I had the room anyway.

Machinerymax.com usually has lots of these plant closings as listed auctions.

Plenty of commercial production equipment like the ultra wide belt sanders, edge banders, and factory CNC equipment, but also loads of “small” tools for the home woodworker. You never know who you will be competing with when bidding, but after going to dozens of auctions (where I can pre-inspect everything), you get a good idea of what will go cheaply and can bid accordingly.

Often with these plant closings, the big buyers are only interested in the high dollar equipment where buying used can save them $10000’s, the small guy can often get away with good tooling for pennies on the dollar.

Scary when you realize that the Sander and planer combined are bigger than your whole shop!

That RAS is now sitting in my shop with a rotary phase converter, and it’s a beauty (it’s not sideways in my shop).

They just had an auction of the last place I worked.. the smaller shop equipment goes high, yet the large shop equipment sells cheap..

If it will fit in a pickup its expensive. Cheap if you need it moved..

been to quite a few sales here in phoenix, lotsa shops shutting down, a few deals on the bigger tools, but imo, still pricey or near new prices on most that i saw at sales, some negotiating can be done on some, but the popular items go fast and expensive.

I was mostly after their wood stash
