« Part 11: Just an Update... Part 12 of How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? series Part 13: Stormin in So. Cal. »

I had a pretty busy week, I sold the Dewalt Planer ($350), The rest of my wood planes ($200) and the Jet Sander ($330) then went to the Rose Bowl this morning and picked up a nice Stanley #193 plane for $40 along with a reprint of a Stanley #129 tool catalog that will make a nice resource book. I also picked up a small box of R/C airplane engines and mufflers for $60. I know I’ve said this before BUT if you like antiques and live in the So. California area you have to make the Rose Bowl a must stop. If my math is correct I had $1620 before the $100 spent today so $1520 in the pot and 13 items on the bay. Just a side note, The Rose Bowl is the second Sunday of every month so make plans to be there next month and have a blast. Keeping my eye on the big picture…

OOPS, I forgot, I bought a really cool pocket Bike at the swap meet on Saturday. It was one of those things that I just had to have… Paid $60 for it and have it up for sale locally but I’m not sure if I want to sell it or not. I guess I’m just a big kid at heart…

Following intently, but am very lazy!

Could you remind me; What is the goal, $$$ wise, that you are shooting for??

DIY, I really don’t have a set amount but I would like to have enough to get the SawStop 1.75HP Cabinet Saw… I think that would work great in my garage.

Are you looking to buy new or will you utilize your expert bargin hunting skills on a used one?

I’d diffidently like a new one, But we’ll have to wait and see. Not to many used SawStops out there. I did just miss a nice 1950’s Delta Unisaw a couple weeks ago…
