The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth if that.
Those of you interested and living near the Twin Cities (MN) should really try to get out to one of the inspection days – either 3-6 on June 21 or 9-3 on June 22. Pictures and words can hardly do justice to the quality of tools and the care with which my Father had for his business (30+ yrs) and hobby (20+ yrs).
Large and small woodworking enthusiasts should take the time to look at the items up for sale. Some machines are definately for the large operator but many would fit well into even the small DIYS garage. And I’m thinking 2 or 3 buddies could go in together and get a stack of lumber (lots 102-152) to divide among them. I just think this is opportunity for a lot of you guys or gals to really find a great deal.
Colectors of Antique woodworking tools will also find alot to look at and bid on.
