So anyway… today, I after I drove 60 miles round trip to score a rockin deal on a metal bandsaw, when I got all the way home I found a MASSIVE industrial punch/press like this one for $350. ALSO back in Carson where I’d just come from.. After doing a little research I found one for sale for 950 and another for 2650. So Again, figuring that the motor was worth $100 and scrap the machine itself probably at least $100 so I decided to buy it. It’s in crappy condition but hopefully I can spend a little elbow grease and spruce it up and then make a few grand on it!? Maybe?
in the craigslist ad there was a new looking compressor so I asked him if it was for sale too. He said yes, $250. And I about wet myself! An almost brand new Sullair Rotary Screw Air Compressor! he said it shuts down under load, and I dunno much about how they work, but it’s a $5000 36 CFM industrial compressor! So how could I possibly pass that up? heck if it only works half assed it’d still be double the output of a high end household compressor.I bought these as investments thinking I could sell them for a profit. But damn now I really just wanna fire them up and make some shit! The punch/shear in particular has my brain spinning thinking about what sort of little $6 widget could I invent and mass produce??
they wouldn’t fit in the van because both of these are BEASTS so I have to go BACK to carson a third time with the trailer to pick em up, it’s supposed to snow a foot tonight, and I have no frikken CLUE how I’m gonna unload them.
Ironically since I haven’t been working on the boat for a while, I might have bought a couple pretty impressive boat anchors!
