My grandfather got wind about me wanting to buy a USED Tablesaw… he then proceeded to chew me out about how its like buying a “used car” and that its all junk. He wont let it go, that buying used, is not the end of the world.
Now, you could say he isnt exactly the worst off. He comes from a well paying job($150k/year, before retirement) so he never HAD to buy used.
He keeps saying to me “You’re better off buying new” “You can’t get quality used” et cetera. I tried explaining to him, that they dont make em like they used to. And that I frankly, CANNOT afford to buy a new Cabinet(even a decent Hybrid) Saw… Its just too much, I have to pay bills now(insurance will start within the next month and a day(Jan 5), and my funds are dwindliing as it is… Not to mention they wont support me getting a part time job.. during the school year…)
And of course my father requires his father’s blessing on ever single freakin thing..
How do I knock some sence into these people. They want me to buy a table saw… and only chip in $300.. thats my limit as well… So for $600, they want me to get a decent saw…
