Default $35 Estate Sale Jackpot

Got a pretty good deal today for $35.
Shop Fox W1500 Right Angle Jig
Lots of new carbide router bits.
Many things I don't know what they are, but they sure looked useful.
Just couldn't pass it up.

Nice find, Mike!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Mike, unless you are using a Router Workshop table I would be happy to swap you a Grizzly mounting plate for the one in the photo. PM me if you are interested.

Great deal.

It went like this. They had one router bit on the table by the shop fox jig. It was priced at $2. I had been chatting with the people and they told me an older family member (wood worker) had died a year or so ago. They had sold most of his things they did not want. I asked if they had anything more router related. He pulled out 3 totes full of things and told me to look through them to see what I wanted. I sorted through everything and took one tote filled up. He knew I was like a kid in a candy store. Nothing was priced. I asked him how much for the box full that I filled. He said," Do you think $30 would be to much?" I said absolutely not, SOLD. I said I feel a bit guilty. He said he was happy that someone would take it and use it. Before I left I decided to take the Shop Fox jig too. He would only take $5 for it. It was priced at $10.
