Default Big iron for auction in downtown Chicago

Big iron for auction in downtown Chicago
Bring a big truck.

The area code is the one for city center of Chicago.
That may not be where the stuff is though.

A lot of the pictures don't match the item.

Whether it will or not, hard to say, but it's mostly OLD stuff, so won't go high in price. Or at least shouldn't!

As an example, last time I used a die filer was in high school. They're slow, and not even sure where you would get files anymore for them. (They cut on the pull stroke, instead of the push stroke of a hand file.)

Some of it would be good for home shop stuff, if it's still in decent condition.

Time for a new signature line!!

Yup lotsa old iron in these parts should be some good deals for locals.
I don't have room for any more stuff... I need more building.
