Well this saturday my parents were in town so we went to the yard sales together. I didn't find much I picked up some wire shelving and a couple of games for a good price but not much else. My mother did find quite a few things so it was interesting packing her car for the ride home. Hopefully next week will be better.

Saturday June 25th

Well this week was a little better than last week. I picked up a face shield for $1 in almost new condition. This is good because I was going to have to buy one anyway so this saved me some money. I also managed to pick up an older Starrett 11HC combination square for $20. It is a 12" model and a new one would cost about $100. This one is older but appears to be unused and was still in the plastic bag in the original box. For those of you who are not familiar with this item here is a picture:

Also on Saturday after I finished with the yard sales I stopped by the full service car wash in Groton. I stopped by to ask them what they did with their plastic barrels after they were empty. I was informed that they just went into the trash and I could have any that I wanted. I had been looking for one of these to make a chip collector (pre-separator) for my dust collection system. Well since they offered I took all they had. I managed to walk away with 3 55gal and 2 35gal.

Well that's all for this week.
