Is there a year cutoff for equipment that you are willing to purchase? Like 1976 or something?

The old saying "They don't build them like they used too" is very true. I like old iron

I just couldn't justify 15k for a newer 12k pound lift. I won't use this one every day and I cant see spending a fortune on one that sits more often.

Its true, these old lifts are simple, easy to repair and clark still supports them.

Boom!!!! New green laser came today!!! Fricken love it already but going to test it outside in the am. My Bosch red laser just doesn’t do well in sunlight and the sensor even has a difficult time over about 35 to 40 feet away. Praying this is better.

My old clark is in that era. Didn't have any trouble getting parts for the old girl. Perfect for our little shop, other than it has to stay on hard surface only.

My old Yale is the same. Good shop forklift but can't drive on stone. Oh and running it without the doors open to long is a bad idea...burns a little rich...

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I'd been doing really good and saving money for our house remodel and my new shop. But this was on clearance for $20 at the local farm supply store this morning. Couldn't pass that deal up. And I'll use it on the remodel and new shop. So that justified it.

Unlike a RAS, unipoint always cuts through same 0 point on the fence no matter what.

Unipoints are awesome. I'd have traded my stromab for a unipoint in a heartbeat. Keep everything greased and it'll last for ever with no deflection in the monster rail.

Had 3 people that wanted it, they didn't try real hard to pay for it, so they got ignored. I have little patience for those kind of people anymore.

You sure that was the link?
