I always keep my eyes open at garage sales and pawn shops for that
boxed Starret set with standards for $50. Heh...
Hey, it can happen. A fellow I know here in town drove by a yard sale, saw
a nice wooden machinst's chest on the lawn. He stopped, chatted a bit, and
asked how much they wanted. When they said "$300" he hemmed and hawed a bit,
not wanting to appear too anxious, and offered $250. Part of not wanting to
appear too anxious included not opening any drawers until he actually purchased
it. It was then he found out it was still full of tools.
Geez, some folks have all the luck!
