Anybody been to one of these auctions yet? I just saw a flyer for an auction in McCook, and after checking their on line information, it appears this is a traveling show so to speak, and I'm looking for your impressions. They claim thousands of items, so I wonder how they auction flashlight batteries etc for small items. They also claim to have a multitude of power tools from of several different manufacturers.

I used to know a guy who worked for an outfit very similiar to the one you are talking about. The power tools were refurbished tools without warranties.

I have a Cummin's 4"x6" Metal cutting bandsaw. It has given me great service for over ten years but it did take a bit of "tweaking" to get it set up properly. Think cheap Chinese tools similar to Harbor Freight and that is close to what you are getting. On tools that you just use a few times in a year you can do OK but if you need the tool for a business. . . spend more to get quality.

Just my opinion,
