I’ve found some pretty great deals on tools, but this one takes the cake!
Fella had a Delta 37-190 Jointer posted on Craigslist for . . . wait for it . . .
$25. That’s right. Twenty-five dollars.
I high tailed it over there as soon as I could. When I got there I asked him what he was asking for it, just inc ase he mistyped the ad. Nope, he wanted $25 for it.
He told me that he got it as a throw in from the guy he bought his table saw from. The only condition was that if he ever sold it he had to sell it for the same $25 he bought it for.
I made no such promise. I paid him the $25 and loaded in the back of my car.
I spent a little time cleaning it up and removing rust.
I sold it on CL on saturday for $250. Dang!
Also, the jointer came with a nice mobile base, which I kept and installed on my other jointer. Bonus!
