    Looks like a gloat and smells like a gloat! $20 for all that deserves a YOU SUCK! Nice score. I need to get a brace and bit set too.

    I agree with Ed, you get a great big YOU SUCK from me too

    Yep, that is a $20 gloat for sure!

    I bet the bits are even sharp!

    peice price

    according to my count you got aleast 27 pieces for that 20 bucks thats less than buck per piece,,,, so you had to think about it fr how long the plane alone is worth 20.. good score you should give lessons on how to get this skill ..

    The funny thing is, Larry actually sat and tried to count the files.

    Yeah, I guess it is a gloat.

    The ones I'm really pleased with are the two Yankee screwdrivers and the #4 Bailey. The #4 is in great condition, no rust. One Yankee was made in Phila. PA, the other in England.

    The other funny thing is, she thought $20 was too high. Shoulda offered $10.

    Well, you got a great deal and she thinks she did also. Sounds like a win-win to me!

    Nah, you did the right thing. It's good tool karma, and it'll come back to you.

    Very gloatworthy purchase.
