What part of the newspaper do you read first? Sports? Business? Local news?
Many woodworkers – and others looking for a deal on products and servicees – will often pull the classified ads out of their local paper and go through them first. There, people who are looking to get rid of their old stuff list their items at what usually is a bargain price.
This week’s question – have you ever purchased a tool through classified ads? These can either be in the paper or – now that we are in the 21st century – online at a service like Craigslist.

Oh yes I have.
I found my workbench in a classified ad, and it cost me 20€.
Sure it’s not perfect, but it is definitely worth every cent of the money.
One score for $550 included:
– 3 Veritas planes
– 1 LN low angle block plane
– Veritas cabinet scraper
– Veritas spoke shave
– a set of chisels
– Veritas honing system
Not bad for $550.
If you could Cragislist as the classifieds, then I’ve bought several tools that way – a drill press and many hand planes.
