Not a project but I thought you would be interested…
I have been looking for a good air compressor for a while and saw one on Craigslist Craftsman Pro. 6 HP 33 Gallon 120 like new $175… good sounding deal so I went to town to check it out. The lady that I met lost her husband a while ago and he had a garage full of woodworking machines! we talked for a while and she let me look around there was a lot of things all in excellent condition she asked what I would like… so I picked just things I need now not wants… So I got the compressor a set of Sheffield Marples chisels (all perfect)... A nice set of forstner bits and a very nice 6” porter cable sander. I asked her what she would wan for all the tools and she said how about $225! I told her it was worth a good bit more and she said OK $240 and would not take more! as I filled the back of my excursion she found a box with unopened spray gun pinner air wrench torque wrench die grinder and sander ALL Unopened! she said this goes to the compressor right I said yes those are air tools and she insisted I take them! Then she said would you like this and pulled out a maple burl slab that is 2.5” thick 36” long and 18” tall with a live edge!!!! I said of course I would like that! she would not take any more money!
Any one know what a slab like that is worth?
As I left I told her some prices she should ask for the rest of the things. I may go back this week for some more either way I am making her a gift!
Any Jocks around Reno looking for a table saw or let me know she has a nice Ryobi BT3000 with router built-in.
