    Right angle milling heads and a big vernier

    I'd placed an alert on Bidspotter for an Excello right angle milling head and I had two pop up on me right around the same time. I placed some bids and ended up winning both lots. The auctions were in the NE US, and I'm in western Canada, so by the time I paid auction fees, 3rd party picking...

    Motor starter 3HP, 220V 14-17A, $50

    I bought a motor starter a while ago because I thought a switch on my mill drill was wonky, but that ended up not being the issue. This motor starter has never been used and has been collecting dust on my shelf ever since...

    Wanted: 1/4" #2 Number Metal Stamp

    Hammer drill, too good to pass up

    Someone in Sicamous has a good sense of humour. Happy Friday! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2236674933331402/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_general&referral_story_type=general

    Colchester lathe, $1500, Nelson BC - Needs work...

    This looks to be one of the free lathes listed earlier, so not exactly a deal, more like a good tidy profit... And yet, it somehow looks in worse condition now -- Maybe dropped in transport? The chip guard is all bent now...

    Does anybody use or have used bidspotter?

    I've used bidspotter a bit here and there. It's basically a listing and bidding service, auction houses can run their auctions through bidspotter. Sometimes live auction, sometimes timed bidding. The timed online bidding ones are easier to follow and participate in from a distance, in my...

    WTB Adjustable parallels

    I got a used starrett 6pc set off ebay for $60. There's always lots of used starrett or lufkin ones available.
