    I think someone's confused. Initially, I thought the mods deleted my first machine tools ad because guys were asking about tooling or the random ttt chatter. Fair enough. But my alerts are saying the tools aren't mine. What?? They belong to me! What gives?

    Your 1st ad, you dance around the ownership issue and then added, "Any questions, I will have to ask my dad and get back to you." That suggests that the machines were not yours. The FM is for inmate to inmate sales.

    Hi barnyard. Thanks for your quick response. By "dance around the ownership issue" I'm guessing you mean that I mentioned I inherited the tools from my dad in the first ad I posted. Is the problem that I inherited the shop? The equipment I'm selling is mine, which was all I thought mattered.

    It's crazy to say that because I wrote in the ad that I might relay questions to my dad, it suggests I don't own the tools. This is specialized stuff with a long history to it. My dad was the sole or primary owner of all of it, before he gave it to me, and I'm not a tool and die maker. People ought to know I can forward questions to him if they're out of my depth.

    P.S. If someone reinstates the ads, would you please put up the ones I posted today that had the photos in them? Thanks.

    So one of the mods undeleted my ads. But now, apparently, they've been re-deleted. I didn't get any alerts this time, so I don't know why. What's the issue? Do I have to re-post them, myself?

    I'd posted a bunch of photos of my machine tools here with my adv username written on a card next to them for the sake of the mods, but was asked to delete them. If a mod would like me to repost the photos, just let me know. Thanks.
