Scored on some clamps

Heard about a yard sale that was held yesterday. Was told there was a shop packed with stuff from a deceased Navy vet who was an engineer. Daughter and her BF are going to pick out one or two, but I estimate that will leave me with two dozen or more clamps to bring home at a very reasonable price. Pipe clamps, bar clamps, spring clamps, face frame, edge, a lot of styles. Told them I would be by tomorrow with containers... They just want to know how to get a dumpster in there or who to call. Gave them some suggestions and they gave me a good price. Never can have enough clamps... that is if I can sneak them into the house shop.

(will also keep an eye out for vice grips and kreg pocket screw kits)

There are some great deals to be had at yard sales.... sometimes quality tools for next to nothing.

That said someone is going to have the burden of dealing with the shop full of stuff ill be leaving behind....including all types of staging sitting there that ill never use again.
