Special Dowds Tools Event
« on: January 22, 2018, 04:46:21 PM »
This upcoming weekend, Saturday, Jan. 27, we will be doing something a little out of the ordinary for us. We are running a garage/estate sale in Richardson to help a lady clear out her late husband's garage/workshop. There won't be many vintage tools, but we will be offering a ton of items essential in the workshop. There are many hand tools, both electric and "unplugged" - drills, a router or two, router jigs, wrenches, socket sets, hammers, hand saws, clamps, etc. There will be many shop consumables - drill bits, sandpaper, hardware. There is a power washer, and some stationary power tools. For those who like vintage machinery, we will be offering some Delta Milwaukee HOMECRAFT tools - a table saw, a 4 inch jointer, a lathe, a sanding disk/grinder combo - as well as a Walker-Turner Jointer (6 inch, if I recall), a BELSAW 12 inch thickness planer, and a mid-century CRAFTSMAN shaper (think router on steroids). There is a smaller shaper, as well, which is an import. There is a Craftsman grinder on the stand. These tools cover a broad spectrum, from woodworking to plumbing to automotive. There are many imported tools, some still in the box, that will be sold cheap.

Special pricing consideration will be made for those who make a pile of items, as opposed to one or two things. It all needs to go on Saturday, as the lady wants her garage back. No REASONABLE offers will be refused. If you are considering the larger machines, you'll need to bring help to load them, as I have been unable in the past to convince Tracy to load them for you.

This is a "CASH ONLY" sale, so hit the ATM before you come. The sale officially starts at 10AM, but we will be there earlier doing lay out. We will be closing at 5PM.

Saturday, January 27, 10AM to 5PM
747 Snowden Dr., Richardson, Texas

We will be posting some pictures on our Dowd's Tools Facebook page if you would like a preview. 

We hope to see you there!
