Default Bosch router guide!

We stopped in at our local Habitat ReStore today to look around. First time there, but I will be going back tomorrow! I didn't bring the truck.

There were several tools marked down to a really fair price. And then there was this guy (see pic below). Bosch Router Guide for $14. Hardly used - no dings cuts or scrapes! It just so happens I have two routers that it will work on.

Then I found all sorts of lumber stacked in the back. One piece caught my eye. I am going back after it. It appears to be at least 10 feet long, and maybe 12. 1x6 Clear pine! And there was another one beside it. They were marked $2.00 each.

And...I found several four packs of 1 x12 white pine which had been shelving at one time. Each pack was marked $28! Currently The big box stores are selling this stuff for about $18 for 1x12x8' complete with cupping included!!!

Pallets $5.99 each. Possible wine rack material and I don't have to go look for them!

Yeah, I am going back tomorrow.

Note: I don't need any of the power tools, but they were fun to look at. Anybody need a radial arm saw? There wre at leat four for sale.

Greta catch on the Bosch edge guide, Mike! Did it have the circle cutting attachment? Basically just a pivot that goes in that hole on the x-bar.
If you have any questions on the circle issue, I can take a couple of pictures of mine assembled to cut one.

I neither buy nor contribute to our local Habitat store. The stuff there is nearly retail in price...with no guarantees.
Unfortunate really; my next door neighbour volunteers there, and is always after me to donate stuff.
I'm thinking that they don't pay their staff, pay nothing for their stock, and take business away from the local merchants that do; how is that fair?
Good in theory until you drill down.
I try and support the local guys that put money back into the community.
Sorry to be a grinch...

It's a "Re-use It" store in Grande Prairie, Ab. They must have gone to the same business school.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

If it helps keep stuff out of the landfill, I'm all for it.

Mike; I'm just saying that our local Habitat outfit isn't my favourite place.
I'd rather help the guys at the lumberyard make their rent; they're there for me when I need them.
