Good. I don't know what they go for new, but $80 seems like a good deal for something of that size.
I think that many of the "old codgers" who remember building everything from scratch have forgotten that most of their projects didn't work when finished.
Not to mention that every time I build stuff(and I love to) I always have to buy some new tool, or bit, or .... And it always costs a bit more. But then you have the tools for next time... But then there is the 28 unfinished other projects, the time, etc. sometimes you just want to get on the air!
My problem is that those tools I buy specially for a project will have disappeared off the face of the earth next time I need them. When I work on a project I waste at least as much time looking for things as I spend actually doing productive work. Nevertheless, I still build most of my own stuff.
I hear that! I know I have at least four of the same hole saw, as I went out to buy #4 yesterday to mount my nmo in the car. Don't you know I stumbled on the others just as soon as I was cleaning up and putting things away.
