Thanks for all the comments, I frequent this blog and always enjoy reading about the amazing deals and finds that members come across and now that it is my turn, I could not wait to get online to share this one.

Tirebob and ssnvet, I wondered the same thing about how this guy came about the tool. But I met him at a pawn shop (where he had taken out a pawn loan on this item previously and paid it off right in front of me) to pick it up, if it had been stolen the pawn shop would have known. They have to run serial numbers for everything they buy through a police database to ensure that the person pawning it actually owned it. I am certain that if my $800 tool showed up missing I would have definitely reported it to the police. I have fallen victim to theft in the past and I certainly would not want to support people who commit these kind of acts. But if the pawn shop was certain that it wasn’t stolen, that is good enough for me.

Comicsniper, I loved your comment!

MrRon, it is unfortunate that lots of folks who make their living doing what we all love are experiencing hardships. I know that it had to be difficult for whoever the original owner was to part with this but I hope that whatever money they made in the transaction was of some help to them. I am however grateful that I had the money to take advantage of the offer, because in my world (supporting a family) $470 is not always available to purchase items on my “want” list.
