David: 16 bucks for a sander back at that time would have been a pretty big investment.

- Yes. $132 today inflation adjusted. If you look at $16 as a percentage of median annual household income in 1957 (0.5%) that is $250 today. Think of what kind of sander you could get now for $250 and compare that to the one pictured.
