belt sander and such
« on: May 29, 2015, 12:46:17 PM »
Friday is the hot garage sale in these parts.  Hit about ten sales in a long hour, and finally hit a good one.   First found a Skil jigsaw in the plastic box, no plastic on the saw though, came with a new box of blades, $2.50.   Plugged it in too, seems ok.  Then spotted a Craftsman benchtop sander.  Has the combo eight inch disc and sander  using a 4x32?   belt.  Some new belts too.  Sanding table goes vertical or horizontal.  All iron, carried a block to the truck.  Had to shell out $15 for it.  Somethign in the drive rattling, but for the price?   My jig saw is 70 years old, so will retire it now.  No wrenches to be seen.    John in Nebraska

Don't you just hate it when you have to pay so much?  Good scores, John.
