I have some one that wants me to buy them along with moulding, compressor, etc etc...
If we come to an agreement they will be for sale soon.

This question calls for a detailed analysis which would be best performed by an accountant but the main questions I would start with are:

* What do you intend doing with this equipment? Will you open a shop, offer a home-based framing service or are you just a hobbyist?

* Is all the equipment functional and do you know how to use it?

* I don't see a guillotine or mitre saw there - have you factored in the cost of buying one?

* How current is the stock - it may have a book value but how much of it is actually usable?

*This is obviously pro level equipment which suggests a failed or closed business. Is there a customer base there to get you started?

* If the vendor is trying to add Goodwill into the price remind him (and yourself ) why this equipment is on the market.

How does 2 under pinners have 4 foot pedals?
Ambidextrous?...:p
I'm not sure why you have 4 pedals for 2 machines...o_O

The 2 vnailers are Mitre Mites also known as Alfamachine or AMP and one or two other names.
They look to be VN2, VN2+1 or VN4 models, it's hard to tell because the foot pedals are covering the tops.


I am very familiar with these machines and I have repaired them.

I have used VN2 and VN2+1 machines and I've sold a couple of them. I sold them for about $800 each.
I had a VN4 that I was given to settle a debt and I sold that one for $1400.
They were all in excellent condition with no leaks (I fixed any leaks) or damage or rust.

I also see a Mitre Mite or AMP corner sander in the picture.
I sold one of them once for about $300.

The press, if it works, can be worth $2000.
A new one is almost $8000 with the stand.
The stand alone sells for about $1000.


I sold a 3648H a couple of years ago for $2000 without the stand.
The stand alone for that one goes for about $800 and I still have it for sale for about $300 but no takers.
I might make it into a fitting table.

Here's the stand that sells new for almost $1000 with a 25 foot 220v extension cord that I made for the press..

From the looks of the fences on the underpinners I believe they are VN2+1 and if working properly worth about $800.00 each. The press if operating properly has the pump and stand is worth between $1800.00 to $2200.00. I just sold a Frame Square Saw that was in really good shape for $1400.00 and it sold quickly so it may have been a little under-priced.

Your numbers are right in line with mine.
If the equipment is in good and usable shape, the numbers posted earlier in post #5 are too low in my opinion, but if you want a quick sale, they should sell quickly at the low prices.

I see the hose sticking out the front of the press in the picture.
That is the hose that should go from the back of the press to the vacuum pump.
If the pump is missing, that's an expensive problem to fix.
If It's just detached and the pump is there and working, not a problem.
