OK, this is why I go to Estate sales. You never know what you will find or what kind of deal you might be able to negotiate. Today was definitely worth my time. I found this Bessy KBK2440 clamp set, brand new, in the box for $30.00! Retail these would probably be close to $200.00.

Jeff,
Don’t you feel the least bit guilty? I know that I would feel better if you returned and made a $170 donation.
Or you could make a material donation to a deserving cause. Contact me via PM and I will supply you with my shipping address.

Was this tongue-in-cheek? I can’t make up my mind.

Jeff, I applaud your great deal! If you want someone to celebrate with you, I would do so for the price of one of those clamps. :)

Jeff, et al,
One should never take me to seriously except on topics of politics and religion.
