This morning it was a 24” explosion-proof exhaust fan for $35. This afternoon, I went to check out a Delta 40-560 scroll saw and stand. The lady wanted $50 for it. When I arrived, I found that it was a little rough. I started explaining that it shouldn’t be all rusty, I’d have to replace the air bellows, the arm was a bit sticky. She just sighed and said “look, I have no use for it. My son left it here, I was going to just throw it out but my daughter said I should at least try to sell it. She put it on the internet. Would you give me $5 for it?”

I think I’ll need to replace the bladeholder. I know I need a new bellows (about $10). But it seems to run good and as you can see the cast iron table is cleaning up very nicely with some TopSaver. I’m pretty happy …
