Looks like a local shop went under, but anyone willing to play vulture might get a deal on some nice professional-grade equipment:

Perhaps for the new workspace?

And my coworkers (who attended with a capital budget) tell me that there were some killer deals there: digital calipers, nice ones, for $10, pedestal grinders for $25, belt sanders and band saws and drill presses and a whole bunch of other shop stuff.

Well nuts.

Sorry for being a snake in the grass :-)

I was there, picked up a TIG welder, couple rolling tables, micrometer, indicator, granite surface, welding curtain, and yesterday bought a CNC mill in the online auction. I'm working on moving the CNC mill, the CNC aspect has something wrong with it in the control electronics but for $2000 we can use it as a manual mill until it's figured out and repaired/replaced.

Thanks for posting!

Chris

Awesome! I had really hoped you'd make it there. This was a perfect event to help the shop get going.

I'll try to keep you posted if I've got news of similar events. In the same vein, let me know if there's some particular tool or material you'd like to get. I may be able to find a source.
