« Part 6: A Second 1950's Band Saw.. This one counts Part 7 of How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? series Part 8: JUST AN QUICK UPDATE... »

It’s been a pretty dead week on CL, My auctions are ending today & tomorrow so I decided to look at a couple local yard sales. After about an hour I was driving by probity the last yard sale before heading home when I spotted what looked like a couple old hand saws leaning against a tree. when I walked up to the saws and elderly gentleman approached me and said ” you like the old ones?”... After talking to him for a while he took me to the good stuff, An old hand made box just full of tools. He said ” Everyone’s interested but they want these for free… I want $400 ”. After talking a little longer we agreed on $320 (that’s all I had…) and he kept the box. I may not make a lot on these but it was just an awesome time. I’ll be selling what’s in the pictures, of course I kept a few for myself… The total count was 10 Saws, 3 Stanley 45’s, 1- 605 Bedrock, 4 Stanley Levels, 2 Stanley Braces and about 35 Assorted Planes. My total is now at $2.00, I can almost see that Saw in the garage… keeping my eye on the big picture…

WOW what a deal , one never knows what you might kick up at a yard sale.

Where will you be selling these items, I would love to have the planes just to recondition for a display in my shop . . . holy smokes that is a GREAT FIND . .

Truly thanks for sharing.

There is a #8 but it’s not complete,#3’s, #4’s, #5’s a #7 that’s nice a #78, #49? Plus a few others… I belive there’s a #5 1/4 and a 605 that’s not in the greatest condition … Also three #45’s
