    how did I do this morning?

    picked up these 3 saws, an old c clamp,(cincinatti tool) a chisel, only because I liked the wooden handle, and this little plane, markings 1110, just for decoration.
    I paid 25, but only because I was told how old they are.

    I almost didnt take the only saw I really wanted, the big 2 man crosscut, because I had my little 2 seater and it wouldnt fit in either trunk, so I wrapped in old cardboard boxes and towels, and carefully placed it in the front seat next to me. It was just so cool looking, will look nice on my wall.

    this was a garage full of stuff, and I mean full. There were at least 15 plastic tool boxes filled with old screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches, oodles of them, 3 generations of tools.
    I also wanted an old bolt cutter, around 24 inches, I thought it was cool because it had wooden handles, and the woman said it was her grandfathers, and the woman was at least 80 y/o, but she wanted 10 dollars for it. too rich for me for bolt cutters.

    V cool Allen. The big one will make for a great decoration or log cutting contest at Larrys place if you bring it along.

    We can cut some of Larrys stash with it. lol

    Looks like a good haul for $25 to me. I remember my granddad having a big 2-man crosscut saw like that, but I don't know who ended up with it when he died. I have most of his old tools, but that one went somewhere else.

    I think you did fine, but listen Allen, when you drive up to an estate sale in a Porsche, the price instantly goes up. You need to pull up in your nastiest vehicle, not the 2 seater.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Did you just equate a Porsche with a Chrysler LeBaron?

    (Allen, I'll hold him while you smack him around a little.)
