This is going to be …. challenging.
I wasn’t passing this deal up though.
On my way home from work so I could get cleaned up to go to my eye appointment, 3 blocks from my house, right on the corner and sitting in the driveway of a place having a yard sale, I spot this.
The picture is washed out but there is a bright Magenta sheet of paper on top.
There was a hedge between it and the people running the sale.
I spotted that, and whipped over right next to it and yelled out the window asking if it had already been sold.
I thought maybe that sheet of paper said SOLD on it.
The guy yelled back NO.
I yelled back, HOW MUCH YOU WANT FOR IT?
Ya ready for this?
I couldn’t get out and get to my wallet fast enough!
Heavy bastards,it is two pieces.
He said they were his Uncles and he used to be a Civil Engineer.
Said they cost him $800 way back when.
I don’t doubt that for a minute.
The guy said he had some tools in them at one point, I am thinking Machinist tools and such ought to fit real nice and free up some tool box drawers.
Lots of room there and that is the problem. It’s as big as a Roll Away tool box and we all know there ain’t no room out in that garage as it is.
I plan on making a frame for it to sit on with wheels under it so I can roll it around as needed.
There is a bit of surface rust on one cabinet but I’ll take care of that.
Fifty bucks was a freakin’ STEAL for that.
Now to get them unloaded and sat inside the garage until I can find a spot.
Even if something has to go I am making room for it.
Because it’s fucking BIG!
I even found a bonus in one of the drawers.
A mummified mouse and the remains of his humble abode.
Some of the drawers need work, it has dents and scratches on it and I had to beat the top front edge up on what was the bottom one because the weight had sagged it and I couldn’t get the top drawer open but there is a LOT of storage space there. The drawers are very long and deep enough to put things in that are in those damn molded plastic cases.
A couple of them have rust in them so there is going to be some scrubbing and painting to kill that.
I also need to figure out how to get some oil up into the rollers for the drawers.
The Wifely Unit is pissed off too so all in all I’m gonna call it a good deal.
Stay tuned for further updates, I may be sleeping next to the damn thing.
