You Win Some, You Lose Some

We went to a local auction house yesterday. They have the outside 'mantiques' (tools, old furniture, etc.) auction as well as the traditional inside stuff (furniture, dishes, toys, etc.).

I picked up a jigsaw for $15 and a set of forstner bits for $30. The saw was a heavy duty saw with nice roller bearing support for the blade and dust collection attachment. The bits were in a wide variety of sizes. I was very happy with the bits, but . . .

. . . the jigsaw doesn't look like it works. I'll work on it tomorrow to see if it is something simple. Oh well, all sales final!

Dang! I need a jigsaw, I wouldn't have passed it by for $15 either. Oh well, maybe its just some faulty wiring.

Hey, If you ever come across some red printed transferware (ironstone) at a great price, pick it up for me... I want to start a collection on one of my walls... I think I may grab a few plates at one of my local antique stores to start off the collection...

Send me a picture of the type of pattern you are looking for. Mom and I will pick some up if we see it.
