I’m a service connected disabled Vietnam veteran learned woodworking in high school 1966/67 and I have a deep passion for woodturning/carving that I have used for therapy, and in my retirement I can not afford the equipment that is needed to set up a small work shop in my basement!

What type of equipment are you looking for? We might have some extra chisels and vices….
Hello Nashid. When I was looking for some woodworking equipment, i looked at Nextdoor.com, CraigsList, and Facebook Marketplace. I recommend using Facebook Marketplace, followed by Craigslist. As I recall Marketplace had a few more items than Craigslist. Wide variety of prices. Sometimes people just want to get rid of stuff so the price is FREE.
For example Google- Facebook Marketplace lathe New Jersery.
