Just scored a 2 ton folding engine hoist with a pneumatic/hydraulic lift for $100.00 brand new.

A few years ago I scored a top and bottom Craftsman roller cabinet and chest for $800 full of Craftsman tools and with a 3/8 snapon impact and a 1/4 snapon ratchet. Also there were numerous other snapon tools in the box. Needless to say, the guy wanted to buy it back after a couple of years but I told him no way!

I also scored a fullsize snapon top box in near mint condition for $100.00. A bit older without ball bearing slides, but really good none the less.

Nice score and thanks for keeping this thread alive. If no one adds to this for awhile I've got some more.

Nice score JR. To keep this thread going I will add a wood working tool. A 40" Walker Turner Lathe and 14 turning tools for $60. Cleaned it up, painted it and replaced the spindle bearings and it looks and runs great.

Jack.

Did I ever tell you I have the greatest, most generous customers in the world? It's true. I got almost all my major shop equipment for free from customers.
Here are a couple of my favorites:


Miller Dialarc HF-A TIG welder. - Christmas gift from a customer.


Champion Centurion 10 HP 120 Gal Air Compressor. Given to me by a customer who owns a manufacturing company. This was a back up compressor and was never used; He gave it to us when he upgraded his plant to screw compressors.


Backyard Buddy drive-on hoist. 'Took up too much space' in my customer's garage, so he gave it to us.
