Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE Craigslist ? I do !!
Ken, me too, I picked up a "Soot-Master" vacuum and a 1000lb appliance two wheeler two weeks ago, both like new, for 100 bucks.
Kind of felt bad after talking to seller, as the guy through that after a year in the trade he was ready to go out on his own. I figured he spent at least 10K on stuff you don't need, he had equipment that after 25 years I don't have because it's not needed enough.
I didn't need either, but decided to use them and take others out of service as back-ups, and I got over feeling bad too.
P.S. I check CL daily for GT, tools, materials, and kill time between service calls at home centers, Sears, etc. looking for mark downs.
