This message is from Paul Shcroeder for members to have a look at.
As mentioned at the Monday club meeting, the family of long time Saskatoon Woodworker, Ralph Reid, is looking to sell his Equipment and wood inventory. The Saskatchewan Woodworkers Guild is assisting them with the general wood working equipment, and Hub City Turners is assisting with the wood turning equipment. The family first wants to sell equipment and then deal with selling the wood inventory, at a later date.
Mel Genge, Gary von Kuster, and I, met Ralph’s son John this morning, to look at the wood turning equipment. We tried to come up with what we thought would be fair pricing, to both buyer and seller.

1. General 260 lathe, with extension, and outboard, variable speed (no reverse), 10 inch swing (20 inch maximum diameter between centers), distance between centers approximately 8ft. The lathe has two banjos, as well as a double post tool rest. We estimated the value at approx $2,500 to $3,000.
2. Six inch delta grinder and Oneway wolverine sharpening jig. There are several attachments for the jig. They are still looking for the long sliding attachment for sharpening gouges. The value here is in the wolverine jig. Estimated value $125
