Just got back from visiting a friend. He is always going to auctions and buying stuff to resell or whatever. He has contacted me after winning some reloading stuff to give me first refusal a lot in the past. So yesterday he calls and says he won a "press thingy" and would I like to see it and possibly purchase it. Went over about half hour ago and looked. He had won a RCBS turret press that looked like never been used still in the box. Said he would sell it to me for $30 if I wanted it.:what: Now I'm the happy owner of another new press.:) Then he says I got another one a week ago and goes and gets a MEC 600 JR set up for 16 GA with an adjustable charge bar that looks like it may have loaded 25 rounds if that and says I want $25 for this one. Do you want it also?? I now own two new presses.:D Guess I have to build another bench:cool:

I have known him for 30 years and we have helped each other some but he always looks for those things if I have talked about needing something. He is not a reloader but has good instincts about value and often finds a great deal. He is always looking for vintage brass/ammo for me and you would be amazed what he has found at little local auctions.:D His comment with things is, quality shows when looking at a tool. I make small batches of wine and he finds an occasional glass water bottle in the size that I like to use also.

I expect he probably occasionally finds a filled bottle returned to him as well! It's good to have friends.

Nice. Congrats not just on the 'finds', but on the long-lasting friendship! Not a lot of that going on anymore...
