« Part 10: It's not always about Wood Working... Part 11 of How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? series Part 12: Nice day at the Rose Bowl Swap Meet »

The one thing that I forgot in the last Blog posting was the money… I was at $800, I spent $350 on the R/C equipment and on friday I bought a Jet 89” Belt Sander & a Dewalt 13” planer for $350. after all of that spending I’m sitting at $100 in the pot. I sold the R/C equipment for $640 after all the fees and the Dewalt planer for $350. So that makes $1090 in the pot but I still have a nice Jet Sander and about 24 planes left. I’m taking all my planes, saws and levels to an antique tool swap meet on Saturday so i’m hoping to be around the $1600 to $1700 mark by next Sunday. Now with that said I think selling the Dewalt planer was a mistake, Only because how often do you find a nice 13” planer for $175? Of course only after I agree to sell it is when I start having second thoughts. The Rosebowl is next Sunday, anyone going? Thanks for following my progress. Keeping my eye on the big picture…

You are absolutly amazing me. I have a planer and 2 sanders but I would have bought those. I never find those kinds of deals in my area. You are a master trader!

Thanks, I am having fun but I’m far from a master… Did you say you we’re looking for a 3rd sander? :)

NO! NO! NO! But I would have bought the one you got for that price. I think I’m a tool hoarder!
