At an auction tonight the auctioneer was about to no-bid a large lot of
crap, so I offered $1 figuring there had to be something in there worth $1.
Immediately 2 people offered me $3 for stuff I would have left behind
otherwise; so I actually paid -$2. I can't imagine why they didn't bid,
except maybe they didn't want it all.
Included was about 150' of hardwood dowels in various sizes that I will use
eventually, 5 rolls of screening I need to repair all my cottage screens, a
50' rubber air hose, and a plastic barrel that I was planning on buying for
a swim platform (well that is a mixed blessing; now I have to buy 3 more for
about $15 each). Also a few other things that I will hold to because they
are too nice to throw out; like 100' of heavy rope, a new wax toilet seal,
and hardware for bifold doors. Not bad for -$2.
But also included were two other items, and I hope someone can tell me what
A 6 piece Lenox Vari-Bit kit. I know they are for drilling holes in sheet
metal (at least I think that is what they are for) but why 6 pieces that are
all more or less the same size?
20' of #2 welding cable. The scrap copper ought to be worth $5 by itself,
but what is it used for?
