    very cool "old" tooling center

    Found this online today and thought I would share with you all. Would be a cool system to restore and have as a center piece in a shop...not that I'm usually a fan of all in ones.

    By the way, since I'm not woodworking currently, keep up the good projects, I continue to follow along and enjoy.

    Hmmm... wonder what it was (posting had expired). I'm a big fan of my all-in-ones. Wouldn't have half the capabilities in my shop without 'em.
    Just an ole' hillbilly livin' large in the foothills of the Ozarks. Scrappin' by making a living as a handyman and trying to find more time to play out in the barn with my Shopsmiths, hand planes, antique Craftsman table saw and a big stack of rough sawn lumber.

    I saw the same post .. it was an old "universal woodworker" basically this one:

    1915 Famous #31 Universal woodworker. 16" table saw, 27" band saw 12" jointer shaper/molder all drive off common motor. Weight is 3500 pounds. nice old machine. $1,795.00

    Looked cool as all heck, I really hope someone who appreciates it and will use it got it. It looked really clean for a 100 year old piece of machinery and well dang!!! I sort of wish I'd save a picture

    That's very cool. I could see an old arn fan going nuts over a machine like that.
