Well folks, once again I have gotten away with thievery,
and my conscience is clean.
My husband and I drove to PA to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend, and I got a bunch of stuff. Some I got from the tents and some from the store which meant I didn’t have to pay shipping.
Here is what I came home with-

Photobucket

Conversion kit for the drum sander to make it a hook and loop system instead of paper with tension.
A two stage cyclone separator that snaps onto a 55 gal garbage can.
From the tent- A hanging air filter 3 speed with remote. This was the best buy of the day. $50.00. The tag said it had a bent motor shaft- NOT. A couple of the motor mount screws were loose, allowing the motor to wobble a bit. Tightened everything up and it runs like a charm. I do have to get a new filter for it, the one on it was ripped. Doing a dance with this purchase.

Photobucket

RazorSharp edge making system for hubby’s bench grinder
Hook and Loop rolls of sandpaper
Diamond point dressing tool for the 10” wet stone pictured below.

Photobucket

From the tent- 10” wet sharpening system. Tag said it had a bent motor shaft- NOT. The stone is not true on the shaft. This can be fixed with a dressing stone and diamond tool above. I had to order a new stropping wheel as the one on it was cracked. Parts were ordered before we left.
From the tent- a carving set- something for me to play with.
From the tent- Heat gun- always a handy thing to have.

Photobucket

From the tent- 3” 3 jaw lathe chuck. Tag said it was rusty. Well it looked like rust at first around the snap ring on the bottom. I scraped it with a fingernail…..it was sawdust. Hehe another gem.
From the tent- 0-6” micrometer set for hubby. In the store the price was around $200.00, got this set for $71.00. The bottom of the wooden box it was in was broken. The mics were all fine and intact. I will fix the box.

Not pictured- a 9×12 x 3 granite stone for hubby. It was out of stock in the store. I cried some tears about it and that it was for his birthday, and they are shipping it without me having to pay shipping costs. SWEET !

All in all I saved a boat load. It was basically like them giving me 50% off my entire purchase, that is what I saved. Some things I needed some I just wanted. I am already planning for the trip in September. This was an unbelievable sale day. If you get a chance to go to one of these tent sales don’t pass it by…GO.

Thanks for letting me share my great finds…

Well done. This weekend is the timber and working with wood show here in Brisbane Australia. There are always some bargains to be had, unfortunately I have zero dollars to spend on anything. I always say I will put some money aside to take to the show, but I always spend it. Oh well, next year, for sure.

yeah right

Good deals hey Lis… we do not have a Grizzly nor do we have tent sales but as Doug mentioned we have timber and working with wood show.. and they are always bargans and discounts at these event unlike your shows apparently…
I will be there for the full three days but doubt if I will get to spend any time or money at the other vendors stands.. well maybe just a little..
Hey Doug come and say Hi at the Torque Workcentre stand..

Lisa,
Next time I need something, I’m taking you shopping with me!
You are the all-time queen of bargains! Between last year and this year, Grizzley must groan when you arrive… they might as well mark everything down in the beginning… they’re gonna in the end anyway!
Enjoy your new toys.
Ellen

CPBarry-
I believe everything is to be removed the day of the sale, but I am not sure.
That would be a question for Grizzly to answer.
Most everyone with intentions of big purchases show up with a pick up or trailer.
Some leave full, some leave empty depends on the find of the day.
I am thinking there must have been at least a dozen band saws,
at least that many various sizes of drum sanders, milling equipment, ten or so air filter units,
hundreds of nail guns, workbenches, chairs, grinders…..I could go on all night. If it is in the catalog you might get lucky, however, it is a scratch and dent sale. Damage in shipping or returns from customers who don’t know how to use what they bought and return it.
DeWalt is there for each tent event and they sell new, in the box, multi tool sets, planers, miter saws and pretty much all their products at a sale price.
I go with a list and look for those items.
I believe the next PA tent sale is Sept 25. Maybe I will see you there ?

Thanks everyone for the cheering on. I felt a bit embarrassed this morning thinking about my post. I felt like I was bragging, but really I was just excited about new toys. Hope I didn’t offend anyone.
Ellen & jm84325- I would love to go shopping…..can I spend your money? Hehe
Eddy- Thanks for the tip, I had a feeling I might need to tighten the seal a bit.
