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.

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.
