I paid $38 for a Stanley 42X in excellent condition back
in 2012, via ebay. As I recall, that was significantly less
than certain online merchants were charging at the time, and
I was willing to pay it because I thought I needed it.

By all means! The less desirable saw sets can still be had
for much less, but only because people keep saving them from
the dumpster.
