If it goes for under $100, you could have a really nice complete set for under $200.

50,000 of them are probably Earl and I.

Would really like to find the #1G and #2G retractable knife handles that appear in the 1960 catalog.
By the 1966 Catalog, they were gone.

Decent price on an Xacto #89 set. Looks to be missing a couple interchangeable heads for the hammer, a couple C clamps, and some of the small drill chucks for the little aluminum ‘finger’ drill that is at the left bottom of the set. Asking $79, plus shipping.

Not my listing nor do I know the lister.

This one is almost too good to pass up at $79, but since I have two of them, I'll leave it for someone else to enjoy.
If it was a #88N or #98 I'd grab it.

Still looking for the following handles : #6L, #5L, and retractables #2G and #1G.
