The other day I received a private mail from Jeepturner. He had seen a post I had made, and in it I had mentioned that I was on the lookout for a cabinet scraper. A Stanley #80 or something comparable. I had watched ebay and craigslist for one. Jeepturner, in his email, said that he had one kicking around that he had aquired at a yard sale someplace. He asked me if I wanted it, just pay the cost of shipping.
Get this. I tried to negotiate a higher price to give him something for it. The more I went up the more he went down. Just like in those three stooges episodes. He finally agreed to accept what is probably the cost of shipping and gas to the post office to mail it.
Many, many thanks to this fellow LJ. I have lots of hand scrapers which I will still use, but the holder for one will come in handy and will see a ton of use. I plan on cleaning it up and sharpening the blade, or maybe putting another one in it. I won’t go beyond that. It’s in great shape and I’d like to keep it sort of original.
Again thanks to Jeepturner. I never expected this level of generosity but suppose I should have here.
