Howdy Upgraders,

Why use a $2.00 putty knife on your mini when you can use
one of these $26.00 beauties?

Yikes! Shocked

Now that's funny. Do you think they've sold any?

Cheers,
GZ

You mean a spatula? I was going to use one, but they're so thick I didn't figure I would be able to do it. I've mastered it with my $8 putty knife, so I'm not worried about it anymore. Besides, all the scratches I've made are out of the way now that I know what I'm doing; they're internal too, so you can't see them.

I have to admit I am a quality tool snob and spent $5.00 on a putty knife (I'll use it for other things) At $26.00 for a $2.00 putty knife, i hope they can sleep at night.

Some of their other prices are a bit disturbing.

Atta-boy! I went for the $8 one by Huskey. I figure, if I'm going to buy a tool, I might as well get a relatively nice one that I can use for other things too.
