Went to my friendly pawn shop yesterday an found a filter for the air compressor for $6. It's a PA212102, but similar to the one in the pic. Also got about 10' of hose and fittings with it.

Nice find Kenny. That's one place I never think to look. I should start dropping in to local shops just to see what's there. One of them had a welder listed recently but they wanted 80% of the new price for it.

The nice thing about pawn shops is that most are open to offers. I and my Son have had pretty good luck this way.

These guys deal. They had $10 written on it, so I saved $4.

That's what makes it so much fun to stop. Not many Pawn shops out here in nowhere SD. I did find one in a neighboring town that is fun to visit. If I lived near a big town I'm afraid that my place would look like a Flea market. I recently picked up a 1/4" air ratchet for $7.00 that works like a champ. I don't think it had ever been used. Can't blame you for checking out the pawn shops.

Well, another trip, another pick. I saw this the other day while there. Went back yesterday and got it.
DeWalt.jpg

$40 for it and 3 drill bits for a 1/2" drill: 9/16", 5/8", & a 3/4".
This is new-in-the-box, even got the grinding wheel.
Normally about $90 for one of these.

Thats a STEAL Kenny!!! The DeWalt and Milwaukees that have easy blade change and tooless guard adjustment are worth every bit of $90. I use them for cutting angle iron since some @#$# stole my chop saw and I love 'em. Mines a Porter Cable that's a good grinder for about $40, but I'd trade you in a heartbeat--Congratulations:worshippy1:

Nice grinder Kenny , you'll like the On/Off switch , the one on my Craftsman uses a thumb sliding On/Off switch which is hard to use when your wearing gloves , Al

A 3.5 x 15 air cylinder with a foot control valve--$10, cylinder works good, but the valve leaks but fixable. Bought it to back-up my hoist but it may go toward a GT jack.
AND last Monday an Agri Fab lawn cart that my ex bought at a garage sale for $10. When she got it home her husband said he couldn't use it--so guess who took it home for $0.? Got to luv that gal.:D:D

Nice goodies, Lee.
Al, my HF grinder has the thumb switch. Hate it. Guess which one will see the most use? LOL
