Every weekend my wife goes to local yard sales to find antique and depression era glassware.
Once in awhile she finds something she thinks I might like and usually she isn’t too far wrong.
Today she went to one and found some wood working and painting stuff. Like a Craftsman 2HP airless sprayer with all the attachments and some router bases and inserts for an old Craftsman router and some spankin’ new computer keyboards, (which I desperately need as mine has a big crack in it), along with a whole trunk load of other stuff I haven’t gone through yet.
After we got her trunk cleaned out I asked if she thought they had anything else I might be interested in and she said she thought they might, so we went back.
I found some more router guides and inserts, both Craftsman and Porter Cable, a Craftsman molder cutter head, (I’ll have to look it up to see if it’s missing anything), and a couple of boxes with a bunch of other stuff. All for $10. If any of it turns out to be good I’ll post pictures later.
Just as we were getting ready to leave, the lady came out of the garage with an obviously old homemade wooden box and asked if I was interested in it.
I thought, “What the heck, let’s look and see.” So, being my intrepid self I removed a couple of small orange scorpions and a pile of black widow spiders before I could get the box opened.
Much to my delight, lookity what I found:
