I posted pictures of the lumber I got for $3 at an estate auction Saturday; here is what else I walked away with. Let me know what ya’ll think…
A bunch of old cool looking keys that came in a random box I bought in a lot with some other stuff, $2; I think I’ll use these somehow in making a bunch of key racks for gifts. Some were old prison cell keys, thought that was cool.
The aforementioned lumber I got for $3
A bunch of finishing products, $10. The Helmsman is full, so I think I did alright on the lot.
An oscillating Spindle Sander, $25 (may have overpaid for this?)
Old Craftsman mitre box and saw, $3 (I think this is how I ended up with the keys)
A bunch of old hand saws and clamps (bar and wood, of which I previously had none), $20 (maybe overpaid again).
Two old planes @ $12.50 each, an old craftsman jigsaw for $5, and a sander that is pretty beat up that came with the jigsaw.
And lastly, an old vise for $5.
