I am looking for a small quality shop to buy. Machines and tools only, no land or buildings. I would prefer someone on the East coast (Texas to Maine) but would consider west if the tool pulled me that way. I am not looking to piece meal this but would prefer a complete shop. Upscale cabinet shop is what I am looking for. 1 to 3 man operation. Slider would be nice but could add later if the core equipment is solid.
I am an engineer traveling overseas (presently in Germany but can make arrangements to be in the states at anytime to look at the goods) and would be looking to close the deal within the next 2-6 months. FYI over 20k is over my head (just being honest but would consider all within reason.)
Please, I understand that many of you have alot of money invested in your shop and I wish I could afford it but this is my price range.
If you are considering retirement or getting out of the business please let me know.
