“I just viewed the tool section of your local Craigslist. I saw a few goodies, including the Porter-Cable that was previously mentioned. Asking $225, which really means you could get it for $190-200. Also saw a large craftsman and a powermatic.”

Thanks. I have been looking at the tool section for some time. Seems like all of those listed have some sort of quirk like a broken handle, old and rusty, etc.

I did send the guy selling the craftsman 15 inch an email asking a couple of questions. The one for sale in Katy is a fair drive – at least 45 miles one way through Houston. Been there done that ain’t a pretty sight to drive in traffic. :-(

The one with the broken handle can be fixed for about $20 but then a new one with a warranty is only about $75 more.

Still looking.
