Well, here’s what I got for my $20 bill…...a 60 1/2…a Starrett divider…and a schoolboy.

Thanks guys, the 118 looks neat next to the earlier 118 that has the number on the toe, this one has the number on the left side of the body. Thanks for your comments.

Nice gets. The term “schoolboy” is a new one for me.

Those 118s are really useful in a tool tote. And zero risk as they’re indestructible. Put a good edge on the blade and go. No harm in running the sole back and forth over some 800 grit wet or dry either. Both of the steels I have got that treatment, and were better off as a result.

Great buys!
