    Default The Score of a Lifetime

    Well guys, I had to post this because it was too good to be true. I just scored this lot this morning and still can't believe my eyes. The gentleman was extremely nice and told me that he scraped for a living for 15 years and if I have any questions all I have to do is ask.

    I still can't believe it.

    Congrats, looks like a great amount of scraping equipment.
    How about the rest of the story now? Like where did you meet the guy, did you buy it and if so how much, where did he work and on what kind of machines (did he have a specialty) what are your plans with it, etc ...?

    And please describe the tools in the wooded box in the center of photo 1. It looks like it might be a couple triangle straight edges but I can't tell for sure.

    I hope Mrs Cberan isn't reading this. She might be thinking she was your " Score of a lifetime ".

    Rough casting straight edges that will be a great project.

    The rest of the story is, I bought one of his power scrapers off of ebay. When I received it, I sent him a message thanking him for the scraper and letting him know how nice it was. I then asked him if he had anymore scraping equipment for sale and I left him my number. He started texting me pictures of everything he had and how much he wanted for it. I asked him if he was interested in selling it all in one lot. He shot me a price that was fair and I excepted it. I drove there first thing this morning and grabbed it all.

    He didn't tell me where he worked, just that it was in a factory and they would pull a machine out of line and have him rebuild it and when he was finished they would put that one back in line and he would start on another until the day came when they decided that they would just start buying the import machines for cheap and scrap the old machines along with his job. He held onto the scraping equipment for quite sometime until he finally decided that he is not going to do it anymore.
