I agree with Rick. Garage, yard, estate sales and flea markets are great sources for used tools. For instance, last Spring and Summer, I picked up a Black & Decker 1/2 drill and a WEN jigsaw (which also accepts reciprocating saw blades ) for $15 each, bar clamps from 12-30 inches for $3 each. (YES, THREE BUCKS EACH!), an adjustable roller stand for $5, a B&D electric sander for $5 and a complete leg vise, with both jaws, handle and bottom parallel beam for $15. That’s just some of the stuff I bought, and there were a lot more good, usable, “previously owned” tools out there, just waiting for a new home.
BTW, If you find an older model Workmate, like a 400, 425 or best of all, the aluminum framed one cheap, GRAB IT ! They are VERY handy to have. You can always flip it if you don’t want to use it yourself.

Have your say...
