Topic tags/keywords: resource tip drill-driver clamp drill press

I spent some time on Craigslist and ended up with some new toys at very reasonable prices.


Delta benchtop drill press with owners manual…chuck removed by me to find correct chuck key…the only thing missing from it.
PorterCable 18v saw and drill with charger and 2 batteries ,with carrying bag.
Freud 8” Super Dado , complete set in great shape.
Freud Brass router bushing guide set…complete.
2 Bessey 90 degree angle clamps
2 heavy duty bench dogs…not familiar with the brand , but will certainly work for my needs : )
Heavy Duty Rubbermaid tote with hinged lid…had been looking for something like this to keep all of my straps and ratchets and ropes and tarps in for my trailering needs.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

You are the king of Craig’s List, Len!
I’m sure you spent next to nothing for all this… you are worse than my mother who could squeeze a bargain ;-)

Len, That stuff looks new! The stuff on CL here is always either rusted beyond recognition or covered in chicken manure. Maybe I live in the wrong zip code. LOL
