  • Purchase Too Good to be True


    Went to an auction of a woodworking shop last weekend. Professional woodworker had died and wife was auctioning all the equipment. Set around for four hours waiting for my main interest, a Hegner Multimax 22V saw. Made in 1995 but looks like new.
    Auctioneer started at $200 and had no takers. None at $100. When he dropped to $50 I figured I had better start the ball rolling. When he asked for more bids there were none and hammered it down at $50. On top of this there were blades along with it. Got home and counted almost 40 dozen blades.

    Have set everything up and it is running just fine in my shop. I guess clean living pays off some times. Not buying lotto tickets this month because I assume my good luck for the near future has probably been used up. Can't wait to get some projects started!

                  I would call that a Fantastic buy . That is a $1600+ scroll saw new. You are probably right about using your good luck for awhile.

                    OMG! that was almost a steal! And all those blades to boot. You won't have to buy any for a long time. Best wishes on the new to you saw.. Fay
                    Have a great day, Fay.

                        Fay seem to be reading my mind again, the blades cost more than a fifty , the saw cost nothing

                          What a deal

                          You are one lucky man. The good Lord was watching over you that day. Sounds like something I did recently. Went to a church garage sale and got a professional kitchen aid mixer for twenty dollars.

                              Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
