Tools Cheap at Junk
In every large city will be found
places where second-hand or Junk
tools are sold. Tools of all descrip
tions, adapted to every branch of
mechanics, can be bought at' prlcea
ranging from one cent up.
A good-sized paint brush brings two
cents, a carpenter's hammer five
cents, a pick or shovel 25 cents, a rip
saw ten cents, and so on. According
to Popular Mechanics, the average
price is less than one-tenth what the
new article would cost at a hardware
