Just got back from a full day of garage saling. A small town near me has a 1 day event full city garage sale that was today. Over 200 different garage sales!
Working 2nd shift made it difficult to get there early, but I managed to get there about 9AM and scored a few good items.
1st up. Miller Falls 214 Saw Set. I’ve been wanting a saw set for some time now to tweak the couple cheaper handsaws that I have but I’ve been too cheap to pay ebay prices. Got if for 2 bucks. Now I just need to figure out how to use the darn thing.
Next Craftsman 3 Inch belt sander. Again, a tool that I’ve wanted but I’m about 3/4 Dutch so paying full (and thats used full) price is not an option.
The best score is 1/2 wood working, this will probably do good for mortise depth. LS Starrett 445 Depth Micrometer. A bargain at 5 dollars. I don’t know what I’ll use it for (besides maybe the mortise thing) but I couldn’t pass it up for that price.
I also picked up 4 Jorgensen Pipe clamps on 60” pipes for a good deal and you can never have too many clamps, and a big pipe wrench. All in all a good day.
Edit, I also found a brand new in packaging Veritas Poly Gauge. Not knowing what they went for new I was still fairly sure that a dollar was a good deal.
My wifes best score was a larger dresser made of real wood with actual dovetail joints for the dresser. Needs some refinishing but it’s in pretty good condition. I’ll strip it down and she can have at it tomorrow.
Beautiful out in in this part of the county too, couldn’t ask for a better day to wonder around.
Well back outside to check on the barbeque chicken I threw on a couple hours ago. Hope the rest of you are making big pieces of wood into smaller ones.
