It is rare that I get to go picking two times in the same weeked. Today was a fun and inexpensive morning.
First stop: Picked up this 1” belt sander. The previous owner said it works but “runs rough”. So, for $5 I thought I would take a chance. While there, I also picked up a clip hallogen work light for another $1. Six dollars first stop, not a bad morning. Plugged the sander up when I got home. He was right, it ran rough. A little adjustment to the tensioning screw and it now runs smooth as silk. I think it sounds happy in its new home.
Grabbed my bride and we went back to the estate sale, from yesterday. While she did some picking of her own, I spied this Vintage Craftsman Dovetail Jig. I haven’t decided if this is a keeper or going on ebay. It was at a price, I will be happy either way.
Once again, thanks for letting me share. Hopefully soon I will be ready to start sharing some of the rehab pics.
Keep your eyes open. There is some great bargains out there.
