My wife swears that I spend way too much time on Craigslist. I tend to agree sometimes but if you snooze you lose. I found this awesome rolling work table on CL the other morning at 5AM when I checked while eating breakfast. The guy I bought it off of posted it at 4:45AM when he got home from work and went to bed. I was disheartened when I never heard back because I figured I was too late and someone else beat me to it. Much to my surprise when he emailed me back at 4:00 in the afternoon and said I was the first to email out of 15 people so he would sell it to me. I couldn’t get there fast enough after work.

$125 later and I now have a nice rolling table for my shop that is 42”x52”x2.5” thick.

Yes I am one happy guy.

My wife tell me I’m addicted to CL. I love the ability to set alerts so when something comes up within your specified price range, you get an email.

Thanks JoeinGa, I will take that

bigblockyeti, I have not subjected her to setting up the alerts as of yet but it is on my to do list. By the way, hello to the North in Columbia Station, just a little ways North of me.

Very nice and I thought I got a a great deal on CL last week! (I didn’t pay as much but mines not as big or as thick!)

My greatest thing on CL is to sell things to make more cash than I might putting whatever into the garage sale pile.
Actually cannot remember the last time I actually bought something off CL. Years and years ago.
