I have calmed myself to a reasonable level from yesterday’s experience.
I want to say once and for all though, that the next time I have even some loose change, enough go-juice in the truck, and a paper in hand with yard sales listed, I’ll be at it again. I love the yard sales. I thirst after the great deals. I quest for the hunt. I am a certified, card carrying, yard sale addict.
If I had to put a number on it, I’d have to say at least 75% of my tools have come from yard sale ventures. I put it that way because some of them came from storage sales, auctions, and flea markets. However, I found these type sales in my searches for yard sales.
I have bought:
$10 Craftsman direct drive 16” scroll saw.
$15 Craftsman direct drive 13” scroll saw.
$12 Craftsman 1HP router.
$20 lot of thrity pipe clamps of varying lengths.
$10 lot of C-clamps of varying sizes.
$25 12 gallon wet/dry vacuum.
$30 Craftsman 10” table saw.
$5 Dewalt sabre saw.
$5 Chicago Electric biscuit joiner with plenty of biscuits of varying sizes.
$1 box (pretty good size) of sanding pads that fit my sanders.
$40 roll around Snap-On cart that is now my sanding cart.
$0 3-piece set of hand held sanders that were thrown in free with the Snap-On cart.
This is just what I can think of right off the top of my head. Dont even get me started on the hammers, squares, stright edges, masking tape, glues, paints, stains, and all the other things I have picked up along the way.
Then there’s the other things I have picked up. I forget the name brand, but I bought a $1 old hand plane that I picked up for SuperD, a fellow lumberjerk, a while back.
