Topic tags/keywords: humor jig

Anybody ever hear of a ‘Woodworkers DoveTail Tenoning Jig’?

Some guy in Wisconsin thinks he has one!

If you want this, you better move fast … I hear these things go in a hurry!

And at $135.00, you would only paying a few dollars more than you can buy one new!

Yeah, Jim, but that new one can’t do dovetails … LOL!

I hope this guy isn’t banking on the $135 to fund his retirement!

Gerry:this is the same thing I was grousing about a couple of weeks ago. I suppose people like this expect to find a sucker. I find stuff all the time on CL I could be interested in but it is either priced ridiculously or rusted all to hell (works good,only used a few times,bought new last year etc etc.)

I love the picture with a description “NEW NEVER USED” .

And yet I was thinking there was a new jig that I didn’t have yet…lolol
I think I know why it has not been used yet, he probably couldn’t find the pages that showed how to make dovetails.
Shoot, even Rockler sells this type of jig for less than $100. If he paid more than that, I think he paid too much. I feel sorry for the person that will pay what he is asking.

Howie … some of the CraigsList postings I see make me wonder if the people trying to sell stuff are stupid, or if they think the buyers are stupid.

I suspect in most cases, the seller is just simply out of touch.

Maybe he just stores it on the saw and sprinkles sawdust on it from time to time, other than that it looks new and unused.

He’s a retired builder. Didn’t say what he built though.
