    Some observations on my recent shopping.

    Most of you will probably be far more experienced than I am in seeking out deals, but I thought I would share my latest acquisitions in case they might be of interest. 1. I can't do without my ancient 30 year old B&D Workmate 700, which has seen me through so many projects. However, 2 floppy...
