I don't always have a chance to get to them. But when I do I can usually come home with a bargain or two. Last night was a good night. Paid $3 for a Ryobi drill. Works! Paid $12 for 329 CDs. Out of all of them I'm keeping 47. That's still .26 a CD. And the best buy of the night 

Paid $15 for it. Got me an equipment mover. Should come in handy this next weekend. Going to get new tires for it today. Even with the new tires it's still way under what it would have cost to buy new.

Paid $15 for 5 bar clamps. Can never have enough clamps. Nice heavy duty ones. Two 12 inch and three 18 inch.

Good haul Blue Rat.

Could you imagine a Auctioneer squaredance 

Well grab your wallet and dow see dow

I got a price so let's start the show.

Parmalaid your money down

One leaves with a smile. One with a frown. 

One of my friends mother was an auctioneer when I was growing up, I loved to hear her go, it’s almost like singing to music?

Spent all of your allowance in one night huh. Momma warned you about doing that!

Gary, mama don't mind me sav'en money on good stuff. : ) 

I'll be going back to the same auction house tonight. They got some tools up for bid. If I can get em cheap I'll bid. There's also one item I'm hoping to come home with as well. I've collected old and antique Christmas stuff for almost 40 years now. They have one piece I don't have. Like everything else it'll have to go cheap. 

Last weeks auction was a bust. Didn't bother to stay. They decided to move the tools I was looking for to a different date.

Was at an auction last night for five hours. Spent most of that time standing in one spot. After all of that they didn't get to the stuff I was there for. Going to go back tonight. I wasn't charged for one item I got so I'll let them know. Hopefully I won't be there for another five hours to come home empty handed. 

Most of what I got was for other people. The only tools I came home with was a set of Ridgid oxide drill bits. Apparently no one sells this set anymore. Glad i didn't pay that much for em. 

It's always best to go to an auction informed. And have a price point your not going to go over when bidding. I'm saying this because i didn't get the tools I was going for. I stopped bidding at my price point. They went for almost double what I can get them off line for. And the guy paying that much for them bought all the sets they had. He could have gone to Lowe's or Home Depot and got them cheaper. Didn't come home empty handed. Got the drill bit set i was hoping to come home with. Have had trouble finding the right holes sizes for some of the guitar tuners I have. They are always between 3/8 and 7/16. This set has, in order, 3/8, 25/64, 13/32, 27/64 and 7/16. Should be no problem drilling the right holes now. And I now have a coffee bean grinder. Perfect for making BBQ rubs. 

Anther great auction hall. Got this sweet Rigid belt sander for a whopping $5.

Works great! Already played with it a bit. 

Nice finds and nice prices.  The sander is a killer find. Saves helluva work.
