Hi Billy,

My area (West of Chicago- 20 mi.) is a desert for the lapidary community. Guess it's because Illinois only offers fluorite, concrete and blacktop.
After almost two years of watching CraigsList, I have seen one cabbing unit, way overpriced, a few tumblers and one slab saw that has been listed for over 6 months now. Bit of a vacuum.

I agree that CraigsList is the way to go - saved a lot of bucks and bought a lot the CL way. As you pointed out, you can see it in real time, and always walk away.

I have to admit that I got an excellent deal on a mint Beacon Star (read Diamond Pacific) TC-10 slab/trim saw a few years back. Guess I lucked out!

Thanks,

Fred
