no previous part Part 1 of Tools ... series no next part

I recently picked up a 16/32 drum sander.

I found it on craigs list … it works great.

All I had to do was put new paper on the drum …

Best part of all it was $35 …

Now I just have to rearrange the shop a little to find it a spot

It was luck … I was out there looking at a jointer for a friend and clicked on the wrong link … I figured the guy forogt a zero at the end (still would have been an ok price) ... I went and looked at it and he siad it was $35 … so … I had to buy it …

I have to agree with Mike. I look at Craigslist everyday and can’t seem to discover any buys like this!

Great score!!

The shipping on mine was more than $35.00.

Congrats and good luck with it.
