Default Ebay score

Just snagged a like new 24th edition of Machinerys Handbook. $16.50 to the door. Been doing pretty good on Ebay lately.

If you have the time to search and there isn't a rush for an item... You can usually find most anything on Ebay.... And find it for a good price,but it sometimes takes an effort.

I'm fond of Craigslist too

Did you know that you can direct deposit your paycheck to your pay pal account? Pretty convenient as the wife never sees it and you are not tempted to spend it on frivolous things like food or beer

EBay is my first stop when searching for any item.

I better not try that...I buy too much there already...

I'm still sorting out all these cameras I bought I'll get them arranged and then sell off the ones that are extras.

I bought some that were broken,but had the literature/discs so if I bought 7-8 I may have 3-4 complete sets with spare parts. I need to clean out a real clean area to swap parts like battery doors or the screen on one from a broken one.

I'll sell a few to get part of my $$$ back and give others to family for presents.. I didn't spend much on them,but I dropped a bunch on welding machines and supplies lately.

That's a good price on the handbook, Moe. I need to get the large print addition, though. That fine print in the toolbox version, makes me cross-eyed.

Something else I've seen on ebay that would handy, new, up to date Mc Master Carr catalogs. If your not a big commercial customer, they're impossible to get, otherwise. I know, you can see everthing online but, dang it, I like a real catalog I can thumb through!

Now that's something I'd like to have too.
Thanks Dave, I'll look into that.
