This is slightly off topic, but I wanted a chop saw for the longest time after getting my welder.
I started looking around and I ended up find one on kijiji, is was a delta and 20 bucks cheaper than a new one at Princess Auto.
I drive out this farm, middle of no where with my daughter (4yrs), the guy selling the saw was retiring off the farm, we went to the workshop and its just packed with tools, but it didn't seem like a regular farm shop.
We got to talking, turns out his hobby was building 1/5th scale airplanes. He had 2 photo albums we ended up going through, crazy the planes he built. Replicate bombers with lawn mower engines, crazy. I was there for almost 2 hours,
At the end of it, he gave my daughter a wood carving , one of many he had done over the years.
I loaded the saw into the back of the avalanche, he came out with 3 more blades for it, said "you might as well take these." I had no idea they're worth 100 bucks a piece.
Anyway, just reading this and it tripped my memory of Bill, and my afternoon in his shop.
P.S. - his career? He was teacher , hair dressing college for 35 years, LOL, could build an airplane in his backyard and was a barber by day.
