I just got a lot of neet tools at an auction today. Just wanted to share with you.
In dont need the wood rasps so if any one wants to make an offer I would sure entertain one. There are 8 files I won’t be keeping. Also I threw the Makita sharpener on ebay. I already have one.
I got the scoll saw for $60 with the stand! I am excited! Does any one know what it is worth?

Great looking scroll saw. I picked up one like that but a lot dirtier in a salvage yard. I paid scrap steel prices for it.

I gave it to a friend and I don’t know if he has ever used it.

I work at a used tool store. We see those saws every few months and get $100 to $150 for them. If its in good shape (and you need a scroll saw) you got a good deal.

Here’s your third photo (you added an extra ”!”) ...whats the story on this sharpener, anyway?

-- Happy woodworking!

I have one and picked this one up at a great price also. couldnt turn it down. So it is one ebay right now.
I figured that at $25 to sharpen a set it was better paying the price for one. I am selling this one to lessen the price of the new one I purchased for $350.00
