4. Estate Sales
Watch the papers/internet sites for estate sales that list tools. There are many former woodworkers whose children do not want to keep the tools. You can find treasures at these sales. 5 – Yard/Garage Sales I hit all garage sales that list tools in the ads and many more that I find while I’m driving around that aren’t advertised. Last summer I came across a sale of tools that had been passed down from great-grandfather to grandfather to father – what an amazing array of tools I found at that one! There you have it! You can accumulate a fabulous full set of hand and power tools without spending a fortune if you take the time to watch for bargains. Happy shopping!
