There's one about half a mile from my house too. One finds all kinds
of stuff there, some things very worn out and cheap, some quite nice,
the occasional very good item apparently replaced by a newer model,
etc. Really good stuff doesn't stay around long though. The shop
keeps odd hours, but workmen around here seem to know all about the
I once tried to find their website just to check their hours. A
curious thing is that if I Google for used tools in my city, it shows
that store in the correct location on Main St., and another store
too. But when I click the URL it gives, it brings up some tool
rental chain in California. Heck, it off by only about 3000 miles,
just a quick hop downtown, right? When I asked the proprietor about
it he knew nothing about it, doesn't have a website or anything.
Google got it wrong.
