A week and a half or so back I found a craigslist add for two older Idex mills for 1500.00 bucks e-mailed three times and got
no response, gave up on them :surrender:.., today I bought a Taiwanese made r30 mill drill and a LOT of tooling from the family of a lost brother machinist on another c list add for 500 bucks YAY ! Then after returning home and unloading the tooling and readying the truck for picking up the machine day after tomorrow I opens up my E- mail to find an apologetic reply from the poster of the Index mills saying that his spam filter had caught mine and a lot of other responses, and since mine was first I had first shot, CRAP !!! can't pull this trick off too, cuz wifey gave me THE LOOK !! ....
BUMMER !! :bawling:
OK ................Whiney rant is now over ..........Guess I'll just have to go pout...... and polish my new toys..........And save my allowance up
FOR MORE TOYS !!!!!!! :laughing:

Sounds a lot like my luck. Except I would have scored nothing. The wife would have spent the money while I was waiting for a response. :fatigue:
