« Part 1: Dust Collector Part 2 of Shop Tools series no next part

Today I stopped at a yard sale to look around. One man had a trailer loaded down with all kind of tools. (mostly rusted) I spotted a few items I wanted, So I gathered them up and ask the man how much. He told me $20 and I could take it home. I handed him the cash and headed for the truck. As I was loading the items, his wife walked up and offered me package and said these go with that Items I had chose. All together I came out with a Ryobi Router, A #6 Plane, some type of rasp looking item, a small square, (2 wood working books and and 2 sets of plan’s in the package from the wife), I think it was $$ well spent ! Here are a few photos of the loot.

I know there’s a standard LJ thing to say here, but I’m too polite to say it!

Nice pile! I have a router like that I want to get rid of though.

You could sell the router for $15 easy and all the rest is $5!

I think you did okay. The #6 cleaned up would be a good user. Although you might want to get a better iron for it, looks pretty rusted but if it’s not pitted it would work fine.
