MAC XR 100
« on: August 25, 2010, 12:00:05 PM »
JAFE mentioned the Snap on version of these over to GG a few days ago.

Someone pointed out a auction for the MAC version that was in an oddball category. I placed a small bid on it and won.

So for $16.19, including shipping, I had this arrive today.

I had seen one that was going as a buy it now, for sixty four or so dollars. Then one of the other guys posted the link to this auction. I tossed a $16.00 snipe on it.

Surprised the crap out of me when my Blackberry alerted to a win. $12.19 was the winning bid with $4.00 shipping. I never expected the bid to fly at all.

I had one of these years ago and used it all of the time. Then it walked off of a job site one day. JAFE mentioning them got me looking again and here it is.

All the wear I see on it is drawer wear. The end of the shift lever has the black worn off like it would sliding in a drawer. The drive has light rub marks no real signs of use at all.

I was totally shocked when I opened the package and unwrapped it.

It really seems pristine from the pics. Nice score.
