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.

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

Thanks ILL Green. Getting good tools at a great price is always fun. But like anything else knowing the tool's quality is paramount. I was at an auction that was selling two chain saws. Both saws were the very same size. Very same condition. The first saw got bids of $100+. The second saw? The auctioneer couldn't get a $10 bid. So he asked why. Someone in the crowd said, "Because it's a Homelite". Someone eventually paid $5 for it.

If you don't know the tool it's aways best to do a bit of research first. Do a tool or power tool rating search. So if your ever at an auction that's selling choice between two power tools in the very same condition. You get the high bid. The choice is between Ryobi and Bosch. You'll know to choose the Bosch. And you'll know why it's the better choice. Not nocking Ryobi. Get's the job done. I have both a Ryobi and Dewalt drill. They both drill holes. But the difference in the drills is night and day.
