« Part 8: JUST AN QUICK UPDATE... Part 9 of How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? series Part 10: It's not always about Wood Working... »

Well I had a person back out of a deal for the remaining wood planes so my total went from $950 down to $800. On a positive note, I used the $500 I made on the first band saw to buy a 6” Jet Jointer for $250 (pictures below) and I’m going to sell the Delta 4” since I don’t need it any more. I’m also going to try and sell the rest of the planes at an antique tool swapmeet in L.A. on Saturday the 18th so if anyones going please stop by and say Hi… keeping my eye on the big picture…

I agree I’ve been pretty lucky so far… as for the first Delta Band Saw, if I didn’t already have a very nice Jet 14” with a 6” riser I might have keep it…

Mark, I can’t believe what you have parlayed that original $20 into. I thought I was a pretty crafty and frugal guy but you are the King! My game is build something and sell it to buy more tools.
