Heads Up - Bargain 'available'

As suggested by Admin, I create this thread for the purpose of posting notice of bargains available on cl and e-bay etc.

Since Admin has made this a sticky post, I feel a need to state the following.

This thread is meant to provide an easily 'found' place to both post and discover items that seem to be a good bargain while precluding those posts elsewhere. This applies to SPTs as well as base machines and major 'accessories'.

It's intent is to eliminate such posts elsewhere.

We need to be careful to not use this as a 'Trading post' since that is specifically a denied use of this forum.

To be blunt, all posts must not be of anything the poster has a financial interest in.

I wish I could get this... Bandsaw on a power stand, belt sander on a power stand, and the Shopmate vacuum all for $150.

Ok, I'll be the fi/rst second customer.

This might be a good deal or not, depending how bad you want a 520.

If Admin does create a sticky, I hope they put an appropriate title on it. Craigs List strikes me as appropriate. If not that, a title that tells an unknowing reader where they are headed.

What would really improve the forum would be an "Ignore Function" for Threads.

Heads Up - EBay

That looks fishy...

Seller has 0 feedback.

Item is in China.

Will ship to the US for only $23.00.

Extremely low starting bid.

Expect shipping to take a long time.

I'm certainly not getting any good vibes from this auction.

How about this un heath!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shopsmith-Mark-V-with-saw-/221526630050?pt=Power_Tools&hash=item3394041ea2

It appears to include a 520, a power station and a bandsaw!
