Not really CraigsList . . .

Stopped at a newer outlet store today that resells a lot of 'overstock' and returned stuff from Home Depot, etc. Someone told me that he got a good deal on a pole saw there. An outlet store is 'caveat emptor!', and there was some new looking stuff, some scratch-and-dent, some clearly used/returned stuff. I checked out the O*P*E stuff and saw chains, looking for 'a deal'.

Most chains were priced more than that store where 'You Save BIG Money!'. But then I looked closer: lots of chains in the wrong boxes (e.g. 'A' pitch/gauge chain in a 'B' pitch/gauge box). Worse, about a dozen loops were heavily used, but in re-taped packages, and priced like new. I guess that low life types buy new chains and return the old ones in the new package? Then places like HD sell them off to liquidators like this?

Checking out, a guy walked up behind me with an inexpensive, corded, electric chainsaw. Chain was on backwards. Asked him, "Ever use a chainsaw before?". He said, "No." I suggested that he download the operator's manual on-line, then offered to turn the chain around - adjusting lug was bent at 45°.

Caveat emptor!
