2. Pawn Shops
You can pick up awesome tools in great shape and at great prices at pawn shops. You do need to visit often to catch the best deals on the tools you want. Older tools are a great value, they were better made than most tools manufactured these days. Watch for brand names such as Rockwell, Craftsman and Delta.
3. Classified Ads (Newspapers – Ebay – Craig’s List)
This is the easiest way to keep your eyes open. Scroll through the ads several times a week and watch for the tools you want to show up.
