Last Monday, while searching for a biscuit jointer I decided to visit a local pawn shop. There it was, a Dewalt DW682K. It had been used once, maybe twice. It had a $75 price sticker on it. After seeing them selling for around $200, I decided to buy it. I’m glad I did; it works great.

Nice score. I have used one of these for several years and it still works just as well today as it did when I first bought it.

Good buy. Around here the pawn shops put off pawn tools for sale at about the retail price. I’ve never found as good a buy as that in a pawn shop.

some pawn shops are good places to get tools if you know to check it out compleaty . but i always ask if that is the best they can do on the price .
