...or should I have picked one up?
Hey Holmz...you already know you should have picked one up...
I was afraid I would try to pimp them at a profit. And there are multiple snares there.
Plus... one has to consider their legacy and reputation. And selling tools at a huge profit is financiallywise but puts one's moral compass in question... Basically humans have a de facto position of wanting to be part of the group, and pimping them ostracises one from the main herd.
The other pull was to give it as a gift to a junior-Holmz... but I already have the plan to will all the woodworking tools to the one of them that has the interest but is currently busy with studies.
Basically I sleep well at night just using the sanders I have.
