Sweet CL find for my "shop"

]Trying to get some tools in my garage to start trying my hand at some fabrication.

Found this beauty on CL for $100 in my town - guy was moving out of a mansion and had it in the basement. All he ever used it for was to start a hole in some spindles for som railings he fixed.

Something was slipping so I was able to get him down to $75...turns out the set screw on a pulley was loose, thats all!

tried it on some 1/4" steel and it works great. New these are about 400-600 bones! Just wish I had more room for it.... as you can see the space is getting tight!



...so to keep the thread goings - whats your best CL find to date?

I picked up this 1953 Craftsman Band saw for $20 works flawlessly- blade was dull. Everything is iron or cast aluminum no flimsy sheetmetal or plastic.

That's what I am looking for next - a good HD band saw for cutting steel.

Didn't get it on craigslist, but I bought a Craftsmen 192 piece tool set from sears on sale for $130 (it's $200 normal), and picked it up in store, then 2 weeks later they said my order was ready to be picked up, and I got a 2nd one free. I just keep one set in the car, and the other in the garage.

I like the old craftsman stuff. I wouldn't buy a modern craftsman tool with a motor in it for any serious use.

The cliche holds true, at least when it comes to tools... they dont make them like they used to!

Thats why alot of manufacturing facilities still have machines from the early 1900's.... b/c they were built like sherman tanks

It was a hand tool set, I wouldnt buy their motorized stuff either. I do notice that my father has some way sweeter rachets then are available now from craftsmen.

Just picked this thick steel welding table for $50 today. Just have to get my buddy over to help finish setting up the tig box and hopefully show me some tricks.

Also, got a steel 6.5 ft tall locker from the same guy for $15. A little snotty but looks cool and for $15 i couldn't pass it up.

For tools - I was in Lowes one day last summer and went by the hand tool aisle and saw 50% off. Grabbed as much US Made stuff as I could including some nice impact sockets. Think it was $100 for it all. I ended up putting a nice roll of tools together to keep in the rear Tuffy and not use any of my garage stuff.

Not a tool, but I picked up a leather cigar chair and ottoman that retailed for almost $3k, for $600 - down from his asking price of $900 since I had my buddy's LR3 for the day in the city and could pick it up w/ cash. Love this thing. I would have had to wait a few months to have it made, plus this was only owned 2 months before the PO moved and it didn't fit in his new place. Plus, if my dog chews into it one day I won't be super pissed.

Nice - Depending on size I think one tank alone is worth $200.

Picked up this desk on CL for $600.

Needed a little work..


Late 1800's Derby Desk from Boston 66" wide Ribbon Stripe Mahogany. Came out of a hotel in NYC. Has a buzzer, and since the pic I have installed the lock on the center door.

$400 for this NIB 72" backboard that weighed nearly 700lbs. BTW - if you have a neighbor with a tractor, it is advisable to become good friends with him.

At first glance i thought you were going to say you got the tractor for $400

I was going to have the thread locked as that would be the end all craigslist deal

Well found another one! We had a town wide garage sale today - found this Gem for $20 Had to buy a $9 metal band for it but not to shabby if you ask me... should be great for any sheet metal or AL work I'm doing. Could probably cut steel tubing without much trouble too. Works great!
