Hi all,
So I have seen lately a lot of bitching about CL and Kijiji. Personally I shy away from CL, it just seems like people selling stuff on there are more desperate for human contact then to make a sale. However Kijiji, ”that shit is my pleasure! ” (for any friday fans out there). So I am compiling a list of Kijiji bargains mainly to show people there are great deals out there, you can get amazing tools dirt cheap, you just have to have the right eye.

Dewalt router. Plunge/Fixed/d-handle base combo
Amazon $301. I paid $60. Mint condition.

Bosch router table and stand.
Amazon $210 (table) $150 (stand). I paid $30. Mint condition.
Stand was still in original box unopened and table
still had all its protective plastic wraps.


Craftex CX series fence. 52” right rip capacity.
Busy bee tools $280. I paid $30. Again mint cond, all plastic wrap still on.



Delta table saw.
Paid $120. (it has wings, just didn’t think to take a pic
before beginning restoration.
Now this may seem like a dumb buy. I would say in hindsight
it was, only because it’s a direct drive saw. It restored magnificently
and with a good blade, works like a freaking champ.


Craftsman 10” drill press.
Sears $199. I paid $50. 9/10 condition (perfect all stickers protective films, just surface rust)


Craftsman cordless VSR drill with 2 batteries
not sure of retail but definitely more then the $15 I paid.

So in summary we have $1620 worth of power tools for $305, with the exception of the drill all are in mint condition with manuals.

oh and just for shits and giggles, when i was picking up the TS fence I also bought this lathe for $60 (total now $365 for $1800)

and turned it into this

Looks to me like you only got about 300.00 worth. I guess you overpaid by five bucks !

I’ve never heard of kijiji. I’m needing to create a shop basically from scratch. I have grandiose ideas, but this is how I need to proceed. No need to bet the farm when I can trade a chicken.

Still have my sights on a saw stop. It would suck though, to buy a saw stop and cut my finger off with a chop saw the next day.

Omfg, lmao that would be so my luck. Yeah a saw stop would be beautiful. However I don’t have $1700 to spend on even the contractor model until I have the skills to start producing things to help pay for it. Either way my end goal is a saw stop cabinet model for sure.

Have your say...
