Good luck. We have always bought a lot of stuff at auctions. I love them.

I hope you get lucky at the auction. Keep in mind the new prices on those tools because people at auctions tend to go overboard with the bidding some times so you should know what you are bidding on is really worth.

You win some and you lose some. I went to one and bought a Winchester model 94 with a scope for $200 and then I went to another one and they had a bench top drill press ( the brand from Harbor Freight -$80 new) with one of the handle arms missing and they bid over $120 for it. I quit at $40.

Good luck and don’t scratch you head- you might be bidding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..............Jim

All I can say. POWER tools went CHEAP. 10” table saw $70, Freud 1/2” collet router in table $75, Since I already have these we didn’t buy any MORE ! The one thing I went for was sold at END of sale, It sold for double what I planned on paying. Did come home with a freud bisket joiner $20. Craftsman 4 1/2” grinder $15. 8 hand saws $1 each (2 are rip tooth). Box of hand files (66 pieces) $10. Old lathe $1. Today we will clean and sharpen those saws. OVER ALL, it was a FUN night !
