Man oh man did I get blessed!!! A friend of a friend who had a friend that was a woodworker passed and his friend inherited everything he owned. She took care of all his finances after his mother died so he wouldn’t squander all his inheritance, and he did some work for her, he was only in his 50s. She and her husband were selling off all his stuff including the house, they are an older couple and really didn’t need the money but just wanted to get rid of stuff quick. My friend went to her house and they had some wood working stuff, pen blanks, old scroll saws, various tools, not much I really wanted except something they had covered in a sheet, Epilog Laser Engraver. Whoo! She said it would go cheap, so next day I made her a cheap offer. She told me he paid $15,000. four years ago and had put it on craigs list, and will be having a garage sale the next week, but she wouldn’t give me a price. Me and my wife kept going over there buying old albums and some small tables, still no price. found used one’s online for 5 to 7 grand. She told me to come back when she has the g-sale. Went there friday to help her identify some old tools and sort stuff out. She told me it was mine if I come back sat, still no price. I couldn’t imagine what she wanted for it but I had some friends that might be interested also, she told me I didn’t want to let some one else have it. Went Sat, told me what she wanted, $1,000. I fell over and wrote her a check. She said some one offered her twice that but she said she wanted me to have it. She said her friend would be happier if some one else passionate about wood working had the machine. Thank you Lord!!!
