I understand machinemuds position, but that's a stand up offer precision:thumbsup:
Thanks. I mean, he's not too far away from me...about 8.5hrs I guess.
I really wouldn't mind bro. You seem like a solid dude. As long as I get them back.

Its really a nice gesture but the main reason for an other set is for the newbie . I would never let him use my columbia tools . So there is no way to let him use yours . If it was for me , i would take yours cuz i know how to use it well .

I am a distance from Montreal, but I saw some Columbia boxes in a local pawn shop recently that looked to be in good shape and I think they were asking $125 each. Just a thought!

I think just letting a newb trying to run boxes might be tricky as well.
Not so much because he might damage them but mostly because of what kind of job he'd do with little or no experience :icon_eek: Make sure to keep a close eye on him Frenchie :thumbsup:

But I find boxes are pretty friggen durable and hard to break. I've dropped mine a few times and they're fine. But i'll keep an eye for a used set for you man.

Pawn shop = tool stolen from jobsite:(
Awe...lol.
Thats not always true...
It could always be that the cracked out taper hocked them for drugs and beer money. So no need to feel guilty about buying someone else's stolen tools. Instead your most likely just supporting someone's terrible drug habbit! :thumbsup::yes:

No I do not agree with that statement. :thumbdown:

Out here the shops are heavily regulated and all serial numbers are recorded. If serial numbers are removed the pawn shops wont touch them. It may be that some are hot, but lots of people getting out of the business and legitimally pawning their tools for fast cash as well. :(

Hmm...Ya i've heard that about quebec too.
One of my employees is from Gatineau. He said the same thing.
Pawn shops are very bad down there.

Well if you want machinemud I can go back and see if they are still there. If they are I can take photos and send them to you and put you in contact with the shop for you to make your own arrangements and maybe they will freight them out to you. No idea what the freight would cost though. :whistling2:

I dont see shipping being that much...
They're not that heavy..20-30$ i'd think. At the most.

Here you go machinemud

A columbia 12 inch just $99.99 at a Nanaimo Pawn Shop. There was also a tapetech 8 inch for same price. I checked them out today again and although they were not cleaned up that well they seem to be in good shape.


Good find Mudshark!
Sweet deal. A little cleaning up and they'll be just like new!
