The best tool deals like this come with sob stories but are usually there because the goods are stolen. On more than one occasion I have encountered this. I went saw a planer once at a garage sale that looked brand new, and it was the only woodworking tool the guy had. He said that he bought this to get started in woodworking but needed money for medicine so now he was selling it. It was a 500 dollar planer for 100 dollars.

Who buys a planer as their first tool?

He admitted that he got it from a friend who does drugs for 30 bucks and had no idea where it came from. As I was chatting with him, another guy came, handed him 2 fifties and purchased it.
