Z and I went to an auction for a contractor this weekend, and I had one goal: get myself a pretty miter saw. Every handy-woman needs one, right?
Sidenote: I work for a contractor, and my boss confirmed my theory with his statement, "Everyone should have a miter saw" this morning. :)
Anyway, It was sitting in the corner of the shop looking all spiffy. See this is not just an ordinary miter saw. It has a laser line to make sure you get accurate cuts, AND and LCD display that tells you exactly what angle you're cutting at. That is pretty to me.
Sure, there were 2 other miter saws, but they were just.. normal. So, when the auctioneer made his way over to my little corner, guess what one my hubby went for? Yup, the green pretty one! Seriously people, there was something sexy about watching my blonde boy beat that other bidder out of this saw! *blush*
I have to check what these things retail for, but I'm pretty sure it's north of $300. We snagged ours for $115. Score.
So, have any of you checked out auctions as another means of thrifting? Anyone else the proud owner of a miter saw? What projects have you completed with yours? Any ideas what I have up my sleeve for this new toy?
