Dropped by the local weekend flea market on Sunday, just thought I’d kill a few minutes sharing some of the goodies I picked up…. (thats right, its “sharing” not “bragging” lol!)

A B&D twin-screw benchtop clamping thingy I got for $4, looks damn handy, tho those metal jaws are pretty ragged, figure prolly remove em and either sand down the plastic jaws smooth or epoxy on some hardwood ones. ....

A Craftsman benchtop router table, got it for $10, unfortuanetly none of my routers fit it (the Skil is too wide, and the PC would need new holes drilled, and i has no drill press yet) and the wings need some serious shimming, but if nothing else the fence I can use on the table I plan to build anyway, slap an aux face on there and its good to go, has a 2.5” dust port built in. Hell if I can find a cheap craftsman router on ebay might be worth gettin…..

And lastly a 50T Freud Avanti thin kerf Combination blade, brand new, for ONE DOLLA….
