Spendy tools

Post by Fuzz »

On one of the threads guys were talking about flexi-sanders and the cost of them. Made we wonder if a guy could buy a high dollar tool and then when done sell it to the next builder at some reduced price? What do you think good or bad idea?

I think it's a no brainer. I recall a thread about a flange tool that was being passed around from builder to builder. Makes absolute sense.
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.
