Porter Cable Sander

Only $39.50!
 In 1960 my father was renting a three bedroom house for $150 a month. He liked to work with wood but clung to his handtools - a brace and bit, handsaw, chisels. Looking at the cost of power tools, it was no wonder.
 For comparison a quick Google search finds a modern Porter Cable finishing sander for $89.95But I bet it isn't made in Syracuse NY.
