OT - Payback is a ... well, you know

I got a lead on a drill press today from a friend. Here's a standard (incredibly poor) image of it:

$100.00... for a Powermatic 15XX? Uh, YEAH!

I jumped in the SUV and bailed over there (Stanford University) post haste.

Exactly one hour after seeing this bad boy on CL I pulled up and realized I was about 15 minutes too late. Drat!

This place is only open from 12-4 on Tuesdays so I felt my chances were good. I guess not.

It was in waaaaay better condition than the image indicates. Single phase, great condition. Bummer.

I think this is a Karma thing for me getting jaded about hunting for these machines and capping on folks posting stuff for sale.
