I have been hoping to come by a few certain hand tools at the local flea markets but everything has been over priced recently.
I was looking over craigslist and noticed that an ad I saw a couple weeks ago was up again. It was for a vintage carpenters chest with misc older tools.
His price kind of made me feel as tho he didnt consider the ‘vintage’ part to be a good thing. I also noticed that he didnt specifically list much about what was in the chest and he hadnt bothered to lower his price in the weeks he had it online.
I took a chance and sent him an email.
Well, he responded and said he would love for them to be used again and that I can come pick it all up for free!
The chest had a ton of odds & ends, a few block planes (one really small one I could see being useful) along with an assortment of tools
The best part:
-I now have a story piece to store hand tools in
Anyways, I know that none of these items are worth a ton, but for a guy with limited budget and still trying to build my tool collection, this was a good day!
