Don’t know if the price is right but I thought I would pass it along. I have bought Tools from here before and the people are pretty good, I usually always get a discount on the tools I buy there.

Call me unknowing but that seems a bit high priced to me.

Second that! $300??

Keep it! For really exact work I use an old Craftsman miter box and saw that I bought at a garage sale (comparative quality but MUCH better condition than the Stanley you referenced) for $15.

That’s how things go in Alaska. They’re proud of their things. Let ‘em keep it.
