Default What a find!

Well i decided to swing by a local listing i seen on craigslist for a contractor selling out. I figured that since i was just starting out that it was worth it for some hand tools squares levels ect. Well i showed up and wait a bit noone around. So i called the number provided fellow answers say hey sorry i never had a call so i assumed no one was interested. So five to ten min later he shows and I start looking asking and talking about just getting into woodworking the fellow is nice and cuts to the chase. I was picking up hand tools ect and he said put the things u want on this cart and ill name a price and if u dont like it we will see or put stuff back til ur comfortable so i put everything he had i thought i could use on the cart. To narrow it down even the things i knew i would be putting back. The fellow looks around it then at me and says i hate negotiating prices how does 100.00 sound ? Okay i had worked all night long overtime just had a strong coffee needless to say i almost puked. I dont know why but the guy says thats about as low as i can go on all of that. So 100.00 was exactly what i had set back saving for a tablesaw, but i said no 100 is fine and thank you handed the cash and we chir chatted a bit. But im dragging this out so this was my 100 in next post.

Nice deal David. If you didn't get a manual with the Bosch 1617 you will find one in our router reference section.

You must be living right to get such a deal. Funny thing is you already knew what you'd be spending before you even went over there
