    Another Ebay $10 Scoop

    Hi All

    Just a small gloat about a parcel i recieved today

    Picked this one up off ebay. All of $10 bucks.

    Not in bad nick but the sole will need some work and i guess a new blade from LV for around $5 bucks will finish it off.

    Scraper is fine. But good batteries are hard to find.

    I felt good when I got mine for $20.00. But mine was ready to use after a little honing.

    Good goin' Rob

    An 80-M! An especially good find. The "M" means it's malleable iron, not cast. Much less brittle, and harder to break. (Harder to find than a regular 80, too.)

    A nice Hock iron will make it a great user.

    Of course, you could just cut up an old saw to make a blade for it. Many folk have done that before.
