For those of you who are looking for something specific in my for sale pages, such as when I list refurbished equipment, I might have a solution for you. You may want to try this: https://www.changedetection.com, I think all you do is sign up and enter the address of the page, for example if you are looking for equipment enter http://orerockon.com/equipment_for_sale.html, and they should send you an email when I add something. BUT, it probably will send you a notice when I change one letter of one sentence on the page, so you might get annoyed by it at some point. It's a great way to track when I list new polished items or refurbished equipment, since I typically don't change anything until something sells and/or I add items, and equipment, which I never change unless I add new pieces or change the status to "sold" as they sell.
ALL of the equipment I sell is used, and restored to perfect working condition. I don't believe in selling "you fix it" machines so I refuse to do it. Every piece is completely disassembled, sanded to remove all traces of rust and loose paint, primed, painted and clearcoated. I uses epoxy paint on heavily used surfaces. I check every part, lubricate bearings etc., and replace parts as necessary. I update components that are worn or out of date, and occasionally tweak the machines so they perform better than they did out of the factory. All pieces come with working motors and I always update the electrical components to make them safe and reliable. If you need any supplies to run the machines or they require additional setup, I tell you that and give recommendations. I don't leave it up to you to guess like the online sellers. I price everything to move as fast as possible, in other words I don't put a sky high price on them and hope for some sucker to bite. I charge what completely restored, used equipment is worth and no more. I can ship smaller machines but most are pickup at the shop, I am near Oregon City, OR.
My equipment usually sells FAST so if it says SOLD, it means SOLD. I won't answer emails inquiring about equipment that says SOLD. Check back often for more listings. If you are not intending to buy any equipment from me, please don't ask questions about anything listed on this page, your saw, your buddy's saw, any other lapidary equipment, etc. I simply don't have the time to answer questions about someone else's equipment. That's what email lists are for (hint: Google "rockhounds email list"). That's also what rock & gem clubs are for - join your local club! You can pay through the Paypal cart buttons on the page, money order, or cashier's check, and if you pick up your equipment here at the shop I can accept credit and debit cards, cash, money orders, and cashier's checks. S&H & insurance not included. Will ship some items via USPS Priority Mail (if it fits in a flat rate box) larger items via USPS standard mail, or you can come get it (strongly preferred!). I am in Oregon City, Oregon 97045. E-mail me at the address at the bottom of the page if you have any questions!
ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS ARE ANSEWERED HERE. I will not, under any circumstances, ship anything international. The rates are now ridiculous as of the 1/27/13 price increase, and I've had enough of boxes going missing on the receiving end. If you aren't a US citizen and you can give me a US address to ship to that's OK. By ordering from this site you are agreeing to all the stated policies on the linked page.
As pictured, all cast aluminum, good bearing, cast iron pulley, new cork gasket, epoxy painted top for durability. These are built like a tank unlike all of the new trim saws. You really have to work hard to mess it up (I suppose you could bash it with a sledgehammer lol). 5/8" arbor, ready for oil or water. You supply a blade, motor and base if you like (I just bolt mine down to my bench). Cheap 1/5 or 1/4 horsepower motors from Amazon etc. work just fine, you don't need much power or torque to trim sbals and slice small pieces. Worked well for many years trimming slabs and faceting rough. I'll throw in a blade that came with that I never even tried to use, so it may or may not be useable. I will bill for shipping or you pickup Oregon City. The top looks cockeyed in the photos, it isn't lol. Can be run with water coolant (with an additive such as LubeCool) or oil, I use non-toxic food grade lubricant in all of my saws (and sell some here).
Identical to the MK 301 blade series. Came with a saw but I already had an MK lol. 5/8" arbor shaft diameter, 1" if you take the spacer out. Never even been on a machine. Lists for $235 + shipping. Yours for $190 + shipping.
This accessory converts a 12, 14, or 16 inch Covington slab saw to a trim saw, all you do is clamp it in the vise and lift the lid to trim your slabs. I bought a new saw and I just don't have a use for it. I don't think you can even buy it separately.
TO EMAIL ME: Type the email address above into your email program. The last character is the number one, not an I. Please note: My email address has changed as of Jan 2010 to once again evade the spammers. The old email address was inactivated soon thereafter so don't use it anymore as I will NOT get your email!
