    This sounds like a good deal

    On the Albuquerque craigslist,
    Powermatic Model 10 Floor Standing Chisel Mortise/Tenon Machine for $250.
    http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/tls/302923467.html

    I donít do enough mortise & tenon work to sacrifice the required floor space.

    If that were near me I would be in the truck with the trailer behind me calling him on the cell phone saying I was on the way!!!!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Sheesh, why couldn't I have found something like this when I used to make that drive from Odessa to ABQ at least ONCE EVERY week to the Car Sale and always had enough room on a truck or trailer to have hauled this home.

    Oh well, it would just have to sit with no power, (like the rest of my big tools) for a while yet anyhow, but this model is ONE piece of Old/Big Iron I would really like to have, and NOTHING like this EVER comes up anywhere CLOSE to here.

    I talked to the guy this afternoon. Says the mortiser runs well, just missing a few table parts that can replaced easily.
    He said that he has a lot of machine shop stuff so weíre going to get together next week some time. He also has an older Powermatic model 60 in good shape that Iím going to take a look at.

    He doesnít have a walk-in storefront, just a warehouse that he stores the stuff in. We were supposed to get together this afternoon but he got waylaid doing something else.

    The PM 10 is a stout chisel mortiser, but it does require drill bits of a bit longer length. they are not that easy to find. I have a friend who has one, and it is a good machine.
