About CMW


Classic Machine Works is an outgrowth of 30 years in production woodworking.
We're located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, just north of Hagerstown, MD

While not a machinery dealer exactly, through the years we've collected
A huge inventory of vintage and modern woodworking machines. 
Some were in our factory, others were bought or horse-traded, a few are consignments.
It's time to thin the warehouse and find good homes for the collection.

Over 160 machines are listed - accurately described and clearly photographed. 
Most are in good working condition, some are projects, and a few are parts machines. 

The Classic American makers - Oliver, Whitney, Yates, Diehl, Mattison...
Flooring & Production Mill - End Matchers, Moulders, Defecting saws, Ripsaws...
Lumber Handling - Conveyors, Transfer decks, Rollcases...
Furniture Production - Boring, Profiling, Routing, Glue clamping...
Reclaimed Wood Processing - Brushing, Sanding, Cut off saws...

All machines are sold as is, from our location - FOB - Chambersburg, PA, 17201 
You will get an honest assessment of each piece - no surprises - life's too short...
Our goal is to sell machines and clear the warehouse to make room for new opportunities.

INTERESTED IN A MACHINE ?
Click the Blue Button on the Machine Detail page 
and use the Inquiry Form.
Provide your Name, Email, Location, Phone, and any questions.
Serious inquiries only, please.

WHAT ABOUT PRICING ?
We'll likely be higher than the deals on IRS Auctions - always a gamble...
But we'll usually be lower than woodworking machinery dealers.
Pricing is pretty fair and sometimes negotiable, but lowball offers are typically ignored.


HOW DO I PAY FOR A MACHINE ?
When you make a commitment for a machine, we'll send you an Invoice via email.
Payment is made the old fashioned way - you send us a check.
When it clears we arrange to load out - pretty simple.
Better yet, you show up with green cash and then we load out.

WHAT ABOUT LOADING MY TRUCK ?
We have forklifts and can safely load your flatbed truck or trailer.
We reserve the right not to load any unsafe or undersized vehicle - safety first!
Please bring the proper flatbed truck or trailer and tiedown straps.

WHAT IF I WANT TO USE A TRUCKING COMPANY ?
If you are shipping with an LTL flatbed tractor trailer carrier -
You will need to arrange your own trucking - we don't get in the middle of that.
We can guesstimate your shipping cost, but won't provide freight quotes.
All machines are sold from our locationFOB - Chambersburg, PA, 17201

When you line up your trucking company, just have them call us.
We'll give them all the details - weight, dimensions, bed space needed.
We'll provide the driver directions and arrange for loadout.

We will safely load the truck and then send you pictures of the machine after it's loaded.
Once a machine is loaded and leaves our location, it is your responsibility.
There's a charge if we have to strap and palletize machines for shipping.

 

That about covers it -
Thanks for looking, and Happy Machinery!

By the way, let us know if you have any antique machines or an old shop to sell.
We may have an interest as we still collect the really old stuff.
