Hello everyone, I suppose there are a lot of people like me out there always looking for that great deal. For my area this is difficult because there are about 12 ‘craigs list’ for me to search for. I found this site (aka, Craigs List Helper). This is extremely easy to use, I enter “planer” and set the search radious for 300 miles and it will search all of the various craigs lists sites within that area.

I now have created searches like this: powermatic|jet|delta|grizzly|woodmaster|laguna
This search will find any of those manufacturers. I hope someone else finds this as useful as me!

Good Luck and have a Merry Christmas!

I like more

It lets you search all craigslist sites within 250 miles radius, with picture previews and bookmarks.
I’ve I use it daily to find tools/hardware and materials.
