A few years ago I was at the home of an aquaintance that was in the (sign) business admiring a 12 gauge finger brake that was a little over 96" wide. Basically a social call.
A few weeks later he calls me up at 7pm or so and says he has to sell somthing to make his mortgage payment the next day or he would lose his home. I told him that I didn't have that kind of cash laying around.
He told me "give me $300 cash and it is yours". So a couple of hours later I pulled up to the shop with the flatbed and unloaded my great bargain.
I was rather enthused about the affair and even made a sign cabinet with the patterns included and made some really nice aluminum trays for my jobbox.
Shortly thereafter my affair with the machine waned when it always seemed to be in the way wherever I put it and it literally weighed a ton to move.
So, when another sign guy was visiting ME he saw the brake and offered me $1200. Needless to say he was the proud new owner straightaway.
Kinda wish I had traded it in on an Ironworker in hindsight though.
