Premium tools as an investment :-)>

Attention wolfsword !

From Lie-Nielsen planes.

On the whole, the Lie-Nielsen tools sold [on Ebay] for an average of 16 percent less than the full retail price. If you averaged out all the transactions, the average Lie-Nielsen tool sold for $38 less than the retail price.

So there you have it. My collection of Lie-Nielsens is doing better than my 401(k).

The Monster

Looked at our big credit card bill. It is grim. Not an immediate disaster: We can easily meet the minimum payment and then some. What bothers me is the trend. The balance is growing. What I want to do is stay ahead of the new charges and interest, so as to make some forward progress each month. I don’t see how to do this now.
