Ok… so I just posted a tool question. And while I’m at it I might as well share a little about my latest find.
Last week was my birthday. A friend of mine is cleaning out his garage trying to make room for his car before winter. He came across a box of router bits. He’s a contractor and while on a job the guy had a bunch of “stuff” that he said he wanted him to get rid of for him. It was an older guy. He grabbed quite a bit and the stuff got stored in his garage and it’s been there every since. As he was cleaning he found a box of router bits. He has never had a use for them and so he decided to gift them to me for my birthday. I figured it would be a box of used bits. NOT QUITE!!!
Here is what he brought over….
I couldn’t believe it. Almost every bit in the lot was brand new. And not junky… Whiteside, Freud, Woodcraft
And of course… this was the killer….
I’ve been wanting a set of these for a while. Now I need to get the raised panel bit.
And all these bits are 1/2” shank. Sooooo… of course all I have is a 1/4” router. But THIS is why I am looking for the 1/2’’ collet for my router. LOL. I can’t wait to play with these bits.
And… a couple days later he came back with three more bits. Both Whiteside. Both new. Both 1/2” shank. AND… a table top belt sander and a couple other things. A Milescraft tool to add to your dremel to make it be able to rout (not sure what it was called. And a Milescraft dual featherbooard attachment.
PLUS (as if there needed to be more).. I got a a 6”disc/belt sander. I don’t have a pic of it. But there was also this….
This is what it says on the side. I entered that number at ereplacementpats and couldn’t find anything.
There’s no motor. I was looking for the motor and can’t find anything. Everything is new and in box… except the manual. LOL
Pretty nice birthday score… :)
