A $509.95 “Cordless Workshop” for only $99.95!

Here is a link to an eBay ad for this item.
5 Piece Set SteelCraft Cordless Power Tools Nearly NEW
I can find no other information about this brand except an expired ad on Craigslist. It is obviously an imported item, probably made in China. The eBay ad will give you more information about this “Workshop in a Box” that anything on the printed slip of paper sent in the mailing! But I’m sure there would be no problems buying extra or replacement items from the company... assuming you can find an address for them!

Note that the eBay item sold for $35! But the “Sweepstakes Clearinghouse” expects us to believe it has a “National Reference Price” of $509.95. Unfortunately for the eBay seller, it sold for a small fraction of even the $99.95 offered in the mailing. I suspect the smaller price is much closer to its actual value.

If you really want this product, save a stamp and watch eBay!
