I got lucky twice today. After adding the drill in the last post to my collection I
seen a display board that I bought years ago that was missing a drill. It was a
Pioneer drill. I never seen or heard of a Pioneer drill. I spent many an hour watching
E-bay for one to come up for sale. Today was my lucky day. Landed one for $20.00.
First photo is my board. Second picture is the drill I just got from E-bay today.

I did good again today... I would of had much more if I got there earlier.
I had to move out of the cranes way.  They wanted to load. There was 55
gal. drums of this stuff. Some electrical store must have closed up.

 

 

I never seen these before ? What do you think the white buttons are for ?

Just a guess;  Spring-loaded buttons to hold the unit in place!    :-\

I will try that tomorrow... If that's not it I will take it apart to see what makes it tick.
I was thinking maybe something connected to the buttons to hold something.

I found it... LOCKABLE ELECTRIC CONNECTOR by Edward V. Janowiec
It's electrical connector-to-receptacle, sometimes called plug-to-socket, retainer.
Once you plug in the male you have to push the two white buttons the get it apart again.
Pat # 2,732,531. I like this idea. Great for extension cords. I'll put these to use. I cant find
them for sale anywhere. Not even on E-bay...

Not exactly a junkyard find but I am still excited.  I got a woodmaster 408 thickness plainer for ten bucks, a electric hand sander for 5.  A folding table that has 3/4 inch 4x8 sheet of osb board for ten bucks.  I will cut it up and use the osb and store the legs (probly forever).  My wife bought a bbq utensil set just for the lighter in it for 2.

I consider some of the stuff above as mercy buys due to the planer being so cheap.  I got it home and all I had to do was rig up a handle and it seems to work perfect and the planes are quiet and smooth.

 

 

Now I will only have to travel to do wide boards.  Did I mention I was excited about my find or actually my uncles find for me as my uncle is the one with the planer I have been using.

You are not the only one that comes on to good deals. :D

Good deals come to anyone that takes the time to look for them.
Everyone thinks i'm so lucky to find all I find... It takes work.
You got to get up 3:00 am to be the first one at yard sales and flea
markets. You got to go every day to the junkyard and look hard.
You also need to know what to look for. I look for things that I never
seen before. If I never seen it before then someone somewhere is
looking for one.

With all do respect K, if you've never seen one before I firmly believe it hasn't been invented yet  ;).

K....
If it weren't for my relitives who do like to shop, looking out for me, I would never get a good deal.  I believe you.  I also agree that if you have not seen it, it probly has not been invented.

It happens to me a lot. It's one sure way I found to make money.
Just this week I found a Dynamometer in the junkyard. I had no idea
what it was until I Googled it. It's used to set the tension on cables
for bridges and towers. Sells for around $800.00 on E-bay.
I also found 36 new bandsaw blades. I will cut the longer one's down
to fit my machines. I'm sure glad I bought a blade welder.

With a little jiggering, you could use it to measure the tension in your blades on your mill...

I thought the same thing after I found out what it was. It's made for 5000lb. pull.
I was thinking that probably around the poundage needed for a saw mill band.
I'm not going to try it. I came up with a hollow hydraulic cylinder that works great
for tracking my tension and I'm done building bridges. Think I'll sell it.
