I’m kind of on the fence about this. Maybe it’s made out of alder. What do you think, pull the trigger? I mean, hell, for 10 bucks how could you go wrong?

Blurry, you don’t get the sawblade, might not be Alder, pretty sure it’s not the “expensive Blackwalnut”.

Just looking at the one picture, it doesn’t look like something I would want at any price.

I’d ask if they were firm on the price. Maybe offer $8 instead

Will they pay you $10 to take it away?

$10 is acceptable, but only if you get the saw blade.

But it might be spalted alder.

I’m reluctantly posting the link even though I’m sure there’ll be a flood of shop hounds bidding it up.

CraigsList is a never ending source of amusement.

I also am amazed by the guys that will list something like “One Craftsman 5/16 drill bit”. Because, heck, who doesn’t want to go through the whole Craigslist email, phone call, and travel scenario when you need a 5/16 drill bit?

He says in the Listing that the Saw Blade is NOT included! Even that is barely worth $10.00!

You mean I’m not the only one that would do that?

The worst thing is when you look over the tools only to realize that they lied, or there is so much damage that you wasted you time.
