Got all these goodies for $20 this afternoon. He wanted $30, but being the sporting man I am, I felt the need to get an even better deal if possible.

Sterling 6 Cu. Ft. "the tough guy' wheel barrow, a 48" and 24" crick that need new glass and some linseed oil, but still read true, 3 brick spacer rules, and misc. hand tools, jointers, tuck pointers, shovel, mud hoe, etc.

I probably made more today than if I'd gone to work lol!

The guy buys storage units and this was in it. He has a storage unit in the same area I have one. His doesnt sell contractor type stuff in his shop downtown, just home furnishing type things.

The wheelbarrow is $180, the levels are $150, the rules are 20 bucks each, and those are prices for GOOD customers. If you can't find them local, I can send you a level repair kit with the glass, retainers, and oil for about 25 bucks.

The seller is probably telling his junker buddies, "Yeah, and I got another $20 from a guy to take all that heavy, old, used crap off my hands."
