Is this a gloat?

Hi all, Went to a collectibles show this past weekend and got a Stanley no. 80 scraper in excellant shape for $35.00. Is that a good price for one of these? Thanks, Gene

Hehehe, Just came from Ebay and those scrapers go for around $10.00. Oh well, maybe next time I'll find a bargain. Gene

You win some, you lose some :-) One day you will score a $1000 tool for $50, and then that $35 will be a faded thought!

Depends on your perspective I guess. I paid exactly the same amount for a new Stanley # 80 at Highland Hardware in Atlanta two weeks ago.

No. Think of it as Connecticut's revenge on Hawaii for getting all the sunshine and surfing.
Here in the UK I've never paid more than $15, and that for a sweetheart. However it's still a useful tool, no matter what you paid, so just enjoy it.
