I have made the move. So far two loads of “Stuff” 2800 miles across the country. This week-end I had time to check out TOOLS in this part of country. REALLY wondering why I dragged my OLD stuff this far…...(Maybe because I can !)
I found 3 old craftsman table saws and a jointer on kijiji.
1st table saw $50.
(Said he borrowed it to brother in-law and it came home without fence, pulley or belt.) Motor runs.
Second old goldie $25….the old couple were moving into retirement home ! Motor runs, missing belt.
3rd table saw $30…...the fella’s shed fell over and this was outside ! I cleaned surface rust off, took extensions off, motor runs, missing 1 pulley.
The jointer was from fella moving, had no room where he was going, surface rust, plugged motor in it runs well. While cleaning it I realized this jointer has 4 blades . They were sharp ! His story is he worked with fella at NAIT, the guy gave him this jointer several years ago, MY COST $40.
Why you ask did I buy 3 more table saws ? Does word “Hoarder ?????”
When I moved I left 2 saws back EAST.
AND for a total cost of $95. I can leave stacked dado set in one, moulding head in other and still have one to cut random lumber.
Chances are IF I would have left everything back EAST in storage I would never find replacements ! LAW of AVERAGE.
