Estate sale tool deal

Stopped at an estate sale today and scored a few tools.

Not bad for $40. That’s a Snap-on ratchet, Mac 3/8 torque wrench, Mac socket set Starrett dial indicator set, a couple sets of easy outs, dead blows, 2 awesome magnifying crabs, transfer punches & a battery charger.

It’s about as good a deal as getting a good running moped for $40. It’s close to a grand worth of tools, retail.

I’ll take one in the “W” column, for a change.

Good deal.

Is that a Starrett dial indicator? Worth more than 40 alone if its undamaged.

Whats the range on that torque wrench?(edited)

Yes, it's a Starrett, and it's perfect. All pieces are there and it's barely used. Retails for $269. The Mac torque wrench range is 50-250 in/lbs.

Fantastic find! Congrats!

Re: Estate sale tool deal

I was pretty shocked when I took my armload of goodies up to the lady with the money box (I avoided the dude) and asked how much for all of it, and she said "Is $40 Okay?". I couldn't even bring myself to talk her down, just handed over 2 twenties and ran!

Overpriced Parts /

Yeah me like the Starrett dial indicator :)

Re: Estate sale tool deal

^^me like anything Starrett ;)

But I was especially excited to find this today.

But get this: after leaving the sale, we had to go to the Tri Cities to get my eye polished. While there, we went into a Habitat for Humanity Re-store, and when we checked out, there on the counter was the EXACT same Starret dial indicator set! I just about passed out; not something you come across every day. They were asking $169 for it.
