So . . .  are you going to take that stuff to the flea market? Or fill your tool box drawers with it?

You do realize that at this point, I HATE YOU!!!!  LOL    Just kidding.  Good find!   I wanted to say, " I wish I could find a deal like that."  but remembered what my daddy used to say, "Wish in one hand and poop in the other, and see which hand gets full the fastest."  :thumbs:

Unbeknownst to Alan, those tools were being thrown out because they were used to repair the patient bed at the ebola hospital....

The poor guy was probably on his way to work, and when he got to the curb he realized

he'd forgotten the trash can full of corn husks in the back yard, so he set down his tool boxes

and went to get it. Now, not only is he without a car, he lost his job too, and the tool boxes

that where handed down from generation to generation. Is there a paint brush in those tool boxes,

that you can use to paint and conceal your van with?

I picked up a roller handle with a long extension at the same place about a year ago, does that count?

Just in case he has another long roller handle, maybe

you should strap a mower deck to your backside

Oh sure, try and get the heat off from yourself. Nice try. Long throw between free and stolen.

I thought a gift had been left for me a few years ago . It was a 2 stage snowblower with a broken axle left beside a company storage barn . I let it set for a week or so in case it wasn't a gift .

A newspaper article later described a stolen snowblower from the local hosp 2 blocks away ( after the snowblower disappeared ) . My name didn't make the news and the thing probably went to scrap after impound .
