Saw an ad in the local paper for a garage sale that had woodworking tools. Couldn’t pass it up. So YESTERDAY I went. The sale was TODAY, so I went again. It was well worth the trip. The prices on everything were low and most of it was good quality. I found an early Bedrock 605 1/2C for $8.00, and a Stanley #95 for $3.00. There was also some Pony spring clamps and a flush cut saw, all like new. I spent a grand total of $16.00 and walked away feeling like I just hit the lottery. After putting those treasures in my Jeep I went back to make sure I didn’t miss anything but there was nothing else I needed or didn’t already have. This was one of the first garage sales I went to this year and I hope this is a sign og how my luck will go this year. Here’ some pictures.

Somebody’s ticked off father or grandfather is haunting them right now :) Nice find. I think you qualify for today’s Daily 3 “You Suck!” award… Too bad they don’t have a site pin for that.

I would consider that a steal of epic proportion! Sweet.

A simple “YOU SUCK” is not good enough for this steal. You’ll have to give me more time to come up with something appropriate.
