Spent the day at an estate auction. Was a good day. Black Walnut 320 bd ft. sold for $175. Cherry Sold for $.35 bd ft. White Ash sold for $.25 bd ft. Tools were cheap, the man had some nice tools, one of everything. MY PILE of maple $10 per pile. The truckload you see cost me $20. Unfortunatly I wasn’t able to buy any of the Wlanut,Cherry or ash (One can only buy so much.) He had a band saw mill with 16 ft table = $1200. The day was RAINY, chilly. I did buy several router bits, new 1/2” shank 3 piece panel set = $20. 6 other random 1/2” shank bits for $7.50 each. (These were not HF ones) 12” broad axe $15. Stanley planes $5 each. I HAD A GREAT DAY.
Pics of the toys we got. Unloaded truck this morning. Found the 6” draw knife in bottom of my $1 grab box. It only had 1 handle, broken. TODAY it has 2.The larger one was on top, I knew it when I bought the box (Do I go back and give them MORE money ?)The pocket hole “Craftex” $15.
