Tool gloat

Went yard saling today. Three pairs of new welding gloves. A new hard hat. Two Stearns fishing vests. A Crescent spud wrench. A 7" Milwaukee grinder.
Some hefty chisels. A MONDO screwdriver. A new nuts and bolts box with separations, a new 6" vise, a couple of WYPO tip cleaners, and a few other things, all for less than $20.
I like yard sales in my part of the country. (rural Utah)

Excellent! Especially the 7" grinder. Last week I got a router table for $4. The garage sales are a new sport for me. Fortunately my wife embraced them the same way...

actually, if anyone wants a router made of acrylic drop me a note - I've been saving it as scrap acrylic - it had a bosch router on it which I sold a long time ago

Industrial Liquidators in Lawndale CA has a new sign on the front door. It reads:
Your wife called. She said you could spend as much as you like.

Not tools, but serious gloat anyway. Just snagged 3-count 'em-3 nice, functional CCD-TR31 Sony 8mm video cameras for .99 + $23 shipping on Ebay. Can turn those around for a couple hun... Hee Hee JR Dweller in the cellar

Congrats! Steve,
I snared a hand scraper (replaceable carbide tip) yesterday for $1. Asked the seller how much he wants and he replied "Don't know what it is, but give me a buck". Kind of asked him why he doesn't know, and he replied that it was his son-in-law's. He died a year ago right on this spot where we are standing. His driver drove over his head. I didn't ask for more details.
BTW, must have been a trucker. Tons of big truck stuff.

Friday I picked up a mill and a shaper for $50 a piece. Shaper is operational, but the mill's controls are busted. Price was right, though.
