Left work 1/2hr early today so I could pop into the bank on the way home.
Anyway, after paying suitable homage to the local parasite (read bank manager) I headed home, but on the way passed a house holding a garage sale.
"Interesting' day to be holding a garage sale" sez I. So I stopped & wandered down the drive for a gander.
Had a bit of a chat to the woman conducting the sale & as it turns out the family are in the process of moving overseas & must do so rapidly as hubby has been promoted/transferred.
So - "everything must go fast".
"Great" methinks, might be an opportunity for some haggling & such like if there's anything worth buying (thinking the odd axe head, hammer, saw, etc).
Then my eyes lit up - low & behold there sat a lovely little Danish 'Scanslib 150' wet grinder.
Had a chat with hubby as laid back as I could be (whilst bursting with anticipation).
He wanted $150 for it. I had a look at it & picked a few little things (nothing really just nit picking of course).
In the end, after some suitable haggling, I got it for $80.
WhooHoo & Hot Damn - score of the year for me I reckon.
These are normally a brilliant little tool grinder that usually go for around the $300 mark new.
Have to invest in a few accessories for it but she works a beaut & should get a fair bit of duty with me.
Anyway, here's a pic of one (not the one I bought but same same).
