    Once in a while you get a win....
    Last week was spent in Adelaide shifting daughter & SIL & grandies into their first owned home, lots of lifting, moving finding new muscles etc along with gawd awful flat pack furniture assembly...their choice.....
    while there thought a Ledacraft dust extractor would be a start to the shed build...(dont tell BobL) so on Wed went to purchase DC1500T $473. then realised I had too much stuff in the utes canopy so would buy on Thursday.... well wonder of wonders for some strange reason googled gumtree on Thursday morning under dust extractor and shiot bingo same thing $250 plus a Leda belt/disc sander usually $429
    so new second hand
    dust $473 $250
    sander $429 $250

    $902 $500 saving of $400 or technically $220 cause I was not planning on the sander.. happy chappy


    now to rip into body work of both to install 150mm ports
    Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

    You don't get that kind of win often, but it's OH SO GOOD.

    Congratulations Tonto

    I had a similar win several years ago but it came out as a loser. SWMBO hammered on "YOU BOUGHT A MACHINE!"
    Rich

    When SWMBO said "I won't cook in metric."
    The metric system died in the US.

    In my experience, the excuse "It followed me home, honest!" might work for ponies, but rarely for a 3-phase combination 300mm planer/thicknesser.......
