Super jazzed, been searching for a bench top drill press and 14” bandsaw, and the local market had nothing, and every time I called on craigslist it was beat out by someone before me…

But not today!

I picked up a Delta 16 1/2” floor drill press, mortise attachment and a 14” Band saw with 2 blades and a delta mobile shop stand for the band saw all for $200… and they all work great!

I love Craig’s List and check it every day and once in a while it pays off! Great score!

I’ll see BigTiny and raise him $25.00. (lol)

I too, check CL daily. It is worth the wait (sometimes).

So, what are you going to make?
