As title says… went to the auction… wish I had more money as some the tools there were picked up were crazy cheap…
I picked up a Router trimmer for $20. Two metal folding saw horses $10. A small work bench draw cabnet thingy full of bits and bobs for $5. (I was after the air hose connections in it for my comressor, there was probably $200 worth of brass fittings and connectors…) sweet, and unbeknown to me when I got it home and cleaned it out various router bits, drill bilts.
It also came with a hand dril which was well a bit rusty… however spent 20 minutes on the drill press with wire brush, 10 minutes with sandpaper on the handle, 2 minutes staining the handle, 30 seconds crc… and errr sweet score.
Also scored some wood (a trailer load the be precise) for $20 whilst a little bit of it willl be fire wood, most can be used for something and have a few ideas already… and I have already milled the bad parts off… most of it was Rimu… also I think Oak… (not sure) anyway sweet deal… (those that don’t know Rimu is hard to come by these days…) We were about to leave when they said you forgot the pile of MDF as well… DOH!!!
I get a txt from the better half, “how is the auction going?”... ... my reply, “depends on your point of view…” her reply “Oh dear…?” sigh
On the good side though, in them cabnet draw thingy’s was a roll of cotten that I gave to the other, and I said… I bought it for you… Not sure why I have to sleep on the couch tonight… Closing down auctions at a woodworking laminate place… bad idea…
