First garage sale was huge. Had more stuff than a lot of flea markets. About seven lawn mowers, dozens of motorcycle wheels, three compressor motors, dozens of other motors, well, you get the point. All I found that I wanted were clamps. He was asking $5 each for extremely rusted C-clamps six to eight inch. $3 each out of about a dozen grip clamps. I picked up the three bigger ones for $6.

The next garage sale had hardly anything but, of what she did have she was practically giving away.

I don’t know what brand this is. The drills are Midway Tools. $3

$2

$5

And a set of jumper cables for 50 cents.

Brace and bits are cool, so is the sabre saw. Does the saw have guide pictured on the box?

Funny you should ask. It didn’t but a few garage sales later, I picked up a tool wondering what it was and the guy told me it was a guide for a circular saw. Now that I look at the box, that was it. I didn’t get it because I just use the base of the circular saw for the guide. Where were you when I needed you?

If it had the guide, I’d offer you 2.50 for it. LOL

Those grip clamps look like the HF cheap ones and will break the first time you put any pressure on them the other stuff is pretty good.
