Most of these items (like tools) are for local pickup only!

Everything is located about 40 miles west of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The tools are big and heavy and not practical to ship.

Table Saw: 12" cast iron top, 1-1/2hp 120/240 volt, Miter gage, micro-adjust rip fence. (Clone of Rockwell Contractor's Saw but also takes 12 inch blade)




Radial Arm Saw: Rockwell 12 inch Turret Arm Professional grade saw & stand




Wood Lathe: Oliver industrial type, 12 inch swing, with 1 HP 120 volt motor, variable speed drive and 8 foot long bed, tailstock with 4 in. spindle travel, 3 faceplates, tool rest & holder, centers, chisels. Spindle nose 2MT, threaded 1-1/8x8 tpi. Lathe weighs over 600 lbs.

The headstock is a model 159, probably an early version because it has grease fittings for the bearings. The bed is a model 2159 bed. The tailstock is marked with a 159 cast into its side (not as shown in these pictures). The toolrest is not Oliver and is fabricated instead of cast. (Corrections made 12/11/07)

Kick Press. It's marked Hastings Consolidated Press Co., No. 1. Its total weight is 95 pounds, 65 for the frame and 30 for the leg lever. It was mounted on a fabricated steel stand which isn't included in the weight. It's sitting on that stand in the picture, but not in its normal position on the stand. And the leg lever is not visible. see Doug's Machining Page


 Punch Press, very small. It was made by Lasalle Machine Works in Chicago, ILL. It weighs 125 pounds and stands 17-1/2 inches high, 11 inches deep and 7 in. wide (12 with the flywheel). The flywheel is 10" diam. and 2" wide. The throat is 3" deep and the crank bearing is about 2" in diameter and the crank shaft is 1-1/16", which I guess is a clue to the capacity of the press.
