Went to an estate sale the other day and saw a Starrett combination
square. The same one we're selling a Woodcraft for about $75. I told the
seller "That's a really nice square - what do you want for it?" When he
said "A dollar" my wallet came out so fast it almost caught fire :-).
It is, like most old squares, missing the scribe, but there's no rust and
it tested at absolutely square.
Between it and my old Goodell-Pratt, I've got a lifetime supply of
combination squares :-).
You should be ashamed of yourself, taking advantage of that poor, ignorant
person. To alleviate your deep guilt pains, send me the square immediately
and I will say a prayer for you. <smirk>
Good catch there. Wouldn't it be nice if we could equip our entire shop at
those kind of prices?
The best I did at an estate clearance last weekend was a free mini filing
cabinet on wheels and some giveaway books, by the time we happened to drive
by they just wanted to get rid of whatever was left. I guess I have to get
up earlier in the morning to spot the deals on tools.

Now that's not a bad deal, but you would've got extra credit if you'd
talked him down a quarter on account of it missing the scribe and
I've got a scribe that'll fit you can have for $74.75 :-)
