I bought this on E Bay yesterday for 275.00
But the wife doesn’t know yet.
Not sure if that is a good price or not. But, It’s so cool looking. I gotta show someone.
I was feeling guilty and dreaming about it last night!
I’ve been looking for one for my collection but they have been priced beyond reason for me to even consider asking the wife for her blessing – as any good husband would.
I have no idea how this happened. I blame E Bay!
what would you do? she wasn’t even around to ask. I could’ve missed out on a good deal!
I know, It’s not the real thing – it’s a reproduction authorized by Stanley and made by Franklin mint.
I don’t know the date it was made. Hopefully, there will be more info on the box. Yes – it comes with a box!
The knobs are 24K gold plated and it’s mounted on a decent display stand. It has a signed certificate of authenticity from both companies…. could be just fluff but it looks real.
Anyway, that’s my Saturday morning, 3 cup o coffee induced tool gloat for the day…. can’t wait till it arrives!
uh oh, the wife’s up….gotta break the news. Maybe I’ll make blueberry pancakes and bacon first.
have a great weekend!
