Estate sales are probably one of the better places to look for good buys
in used shop equipment. I'd do regular online searches in the local
newspaper classifieds. The SA and Austin papers for you since I don't
know if Sisterdale has a paper. Probably worth checking the papers in
Kerrville, Fredericksburg, maybe Boerne, too.
