CHICAGO (CBS) — Thanks to a Chicago-area company, a California do-it-yourselfer has received a $5,000 return on a $3 investment.
“I work with tools all the time, but, not by trade. I’m a collector and avid user,” said Dan Schmidt, who is always on the lookout for vintage tools.
In March, he pounced when he spotted a pair of side-cutting pliers at a swap meet in southern California.
“I knew immediately when I put my eyes on them that these were special pliers, so I snagged them and cleaned them up,” he said.
