now that may not be the most exciting tool in the arsenal, but tonight when I was shopping at wally world, I had a need for a tape measure. Our microwave quit recently, and I was on a replacement mission. I needed to measure the available units to see what would fit in our microwave cupboard. Drat, left my tape measure in the truck. Hmmmm, I'm right next to tools, let's see what they've got I can 'borrow'. Sure enough they had several 12' Stanley Leverlocks, so I grabbed one, made sure the microwave would work and went to put back the tape measure. Hey, wait a minute $2.64. No way that can be right. So I go off in search of a price scanner. and verify that yes indeed they scanned at $2.64
I went back and picked up another one. I'll keep one in the shop and one in the house for the LOML at that price!
