machine tools for sale Southern MS

I am moving near Kennedy Space Center in FL soon. I have decided to sell my machines and replace them later, rather than move them, as I have to build a shop. These machines are in Ocean Springs, MS (next to Biloxi)

Ron: I think you would be making a huge mistake selling everything off and starting again. From what I have seen in the way of equipment available in south Florida, it isn't in real good shape, and if it has been outside for more than a couple of days, it has a good start on being rusted up. It would be a heck of a lot cheaper in the long run to slather everything down with a good heavy coat of grease and put it in a sea container and store it at the rv storage lot. You can probably count on spending 3-5 times what you get for your current tools to replace them and that doesn't include the time and effort just to locate them or the transportation costs either.

Since we have to move too (theoretically) by the end of the year, I'm busy packing and crating mine so that we can load the house, the shop and the hangar stuff in just one day and get it going without a big fuss.

Craig C,

This seems to be the main sentiment, but I have made the decision to sell them.

I don't see the vertical head in the photos in your URL, and it looks like those are the shots from the eBay auction when you first got the machine. (Or are you trying to eBay it?) Anyway, they are the typically terrible "ipix" pictures often found on eBay.

It *does* look as though there is either a pneumatic or hydraulic vise on the table of the machine, which look interesting.

Enjoy, DoN.
