    deals like that invariably lead to bad luck with broken bolts, better volunteer at the senior citizen center for a few hours to appease the gods of grease and oil.

    At the least keep an eye on the old gal and put her trashcans back in her yard now and then and give her a surprsie snow shovel at the first blizzard of the season

    nice find btw.

    a little while back we picked up one of those huge black craftsman tool boxes the professional series one filled with at least $300 worth of snap on tools for about $250 from a estate sale...it pays off sometimes being the first one to a garage sale haha since then we sold the snap on tools and got a nice craftsman tool set

    i haven't had that around here yet, but might keep my eyes open.

    i have an offer in on the top half of this box but she wants to sort through some of it in case she needs tools for around the house, i'm assuming that would be a bargain as well.... can't wait to hear back from her

    I bet the lady that sold you the stuff was happy to see it go. One less thing for the kids to get rid of later on. Neighbor bought a 67 camero rag top that way (needs lots of work). Good find anyway....
