I thought about bidding on that RAS to use for parts but I was afraid I might have the high bid and then I'd have to go get it and find some place to put it.

I'm gonna post this ad from Craig's List just because this guy has patience and persistence. He's been advertising this 510 that looks complete and clean for $875 consistently week in and week out for over a year:

…selling tools on the forum is frowned upon, in respect to Shopsmith, Inc I have read. However, posting to “Bargains ‘available’” is not. So, in conclusion, apparently it is acceptable to post ads of others selling tools, however not yourself. :confused:

Key point is there is no negotiating nor bargaining done directly on the forum. That activity is ok in the Private Message option.

Exposing an item's availability invokes no liability to the forum sponsor(SS).

Free Model 510 in Billerica, MA: https://boston.craigslist.org/nos/tls/d ... 00829.html

I see long double bar clamps and the jointer on the bench behind it (amongst other things, like the mitre gage and floating tables). A lathe chisel rest is on the table to the left; plus the obvious belt sander on the machine itself.

Curious to know if there is a story behind that posting.
