Stanley no. 80 cabinet scraper

Today I picked up a brand new Stanley no 80 cabinet scraper while browsing the clearance rack at the local Woodcraft. It was marked down to $20 (50% off). Did I get a good deal or did I just buy a $20 piece of junk? The owner said she recently found it on a shelf in the back room and just put it out on the floor. I don't know much about purchasing hand tools put it seemed like too good of a deal to pass up.

Thanks

Denny

That seems like an okay deal. They go for that in okay but used condition on ebay all the time. I've been looking into getting one.

I bought a sweetheart on ebay for a little over that a few yrs ago and it needed a little tlc, I think you did just fine. Once you get used to it it becomes a very handy too, I still go for my regular card scraper a lot but prefer the #80 for bigger areas where heat gets to be an issue.

That's a fair price in a retail setting.

I have several #80,s. I paid $4 for the last one at an antiques and collectibles show.
