Topic tags/keywords: humor clamp joining traditional rustic tool gloat tools

Far and away the most popular topic seems to be Craigslist posters have gone nuts.....
I’ve certainly enjoyed it, and have chimed in myself.
But despite the overpriced junk some folks post I’ve found some good deals IMHO.
So in the vein of Wood Gloat, here are a couple.

First up, Budgit 3 ton hoist for $50. I found pricing info on it after I got it home…$1875 new.

Latest steal … the add read something like “Clamps, $5 each”
And they were…

I was digging through my pockets for spare change, and then he threw the thickness gauge and an air regulator in for free.
One of the bar clamps has a 1900 date on it….that’s 113 years ago!!!

And a nice Jorgensen 36” I-beam

What have you snagged at a price so good you felt guilty?

I bought 140 bf of hard maple for $200.00 this past year – that was a huge score for me.

Just bought a Worksharp 3000, still in the box for $160.00 Considering the taxes and shipping I’d pay here in Canada, I’m pretty happy with that.
