    I’ve been trying to save my money lately to get my Jeep back on the road, but I am putting a stash of cash together for a GIANT yard sale coming up in a couple of weeks.
    A community here has an annual sale that consists of about 100+ homes with plenty of items.
    This year I hope to snag a router and maybe some more planes. Wouldn’t mind another Workmate either.

    That all sounds interesting. There is a flea market by us every weekend but I am not so sure I wouldn’t be buying someone’s stolen tool. The yard sales would seem to be owned tools that are being sold.

    Yep…sometimes though (as I’ve been to the sale a couple of times), the owner is trying to make money….and I don’t mean that they are trying to make a few bucks off an item they don’t use…they want to sell items for near retail value.
    I’ve seen some of the same tools there in the two times I walked around, so this year I may haggle a bit more.

    One guy tried to sell a box of chalkboard chalk for $3…and the $1.25 price tag was still on it.

    Hey, hey…..just because he got a good deal on it doesn’t mean you should too!

    Would you rather have bad luck to 14 years, or double bad luck for 7?

    This is a mute point. I’m married and have been with the same ball and chain for the last 16 years.

    Surely some of you have bought a new thing or two in the past week… surely!

    I thought I posted the bench dogs I got and the aluminum cutting track saw blade?……………..

    Guess that must have been the other thread.

    Good chalk is hard to find.

    So be honest. You bought the chalk then saw the price tag?

    I bought this Bostich stapler the other day…it uses T50 staples. I’m really impressed with it so far, I’ve been putting up batt insulation with it.

    I saw that at lowes the other day and thought it looked pretty well made I like the double trigger instead of a nose to push down I think it is the same one porter cable sells.

    It was only $40…a hammer tacker like I usually use costs that, and thus is easier on my arm. It uses very little air, the compressor hardly runs at all.

    @brianpeters
    – have you ever used the dewalt stapler? I have liked mine for a couple of different projects and it was only $25

    I’ve got that one and it’s a nice stapler, and I also have the Makita 18v T50 stapler and of course that one’s even better.

    @supimeister This one is a pneumatic stapler. I looked on Amazon, all I could find in DeWalt was one you have to squeeze the handle…

    The Dewalt is a squeeze handle stapler but it takes a LOT less effort than most of the other sqeeze staplers.

    @brianpeters
    – gotcha – I should’ve looked closer at the pic…
    And I agree with Robert – the dewalt is really nice in that it doesn’t take a ton of pressure to shoot.

    Back from vacation to find – my backordered dust collection hood set for my MRC23 router kit. Pretty pumped to have this, can’t wait to see how well it works at collecting some of the dust. I really like the design of the fixed base one especially. Nothing else cool incoming, although I did get a tracking number for my Festool swag from the video contest I entered – should be here on Tuesday – woot!

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    spotted a tool table driving by a yardsale today and had to do a u-turn. got a barely used porter cable pancake compressor for $60 and a really old all-metal sidewinder saw for $10. I of course plugged everything in and checked before buying them. I let the compressor fill and shut off to make sure them regulator was still good.

    What brand is that sidewinder? How about a pic?
