    They will be posted here first. Then, if there is not enough interest, we will post them on other sites.
    As agreed with Jeff, if additional tooling is available for a machine, it will be sold after the machine, giving first the machine’s buyer the option of acquiring it.
    Except for one, all the machines are located in a garage, near Ellicott City, MD and there is some gear to help with the loading.

    Unfortunately, I am away during the week. Therefore, pickups need to be arranged during weekends.

    I will update this thread with the links to the threads for each individual tool/machine.

    Oh my, Jeff was such a nice chap, really sorry, give my condolences to his family. I have no room for machines right now. Any pieces of metrology?

    Paulo posted his screen name early on in the thread. Here is what came up in a search for threads created with his sign in name (Jeff_G)

    My apologies, I will be very brief (no much time during the week).
    In short, Jeff is the person who got many of us involved as volunteers at Tuckahoe Machineshop Museum.
    He had an engineering background. He was first interested in woodworking and expanded his interests to metalworking many years ago. He had a deep love for old tools and machines, but was also down to earth and practical, equipping his workshops with a mix of functional old tools and a few modern ones.

    Today My father and I took a trip down to pick up a machine I purchased from Jeff’s estate... I must say it was a pleasure to meet Paolo along with Jeff’s son. You could not ask for nicer guys to deal with... I even made a few extra purchases while there. I couldn’t help but feel a moment of sadness when we arrived ... as you walk through the shop looking at the blood, sweat and tireless effort of a mans collection you can’t help but think this too one day will happen to me ... I just hope there is someone there to help move my stuff along to the proper custodians when I am gone. To anyone interested in any of the remaining machines I would not hesitate to deal with these guys ... they are first class! Thank you Paolo for all of your help today as well as Jeff’s son.
