Well, buying a Toas-Tite isn’t really a science. You just have to know where to look.
Boy and I have had a lot of luck on eBay. We’ve added 11 Toas-Tites purchased on eBay to our collection and Boy’s aunt found one for us at a garage sale. There have been a few deluxe versions (Toas-Tites with a slightly longer handle with pointed wood ends and a fancier hook), a branded Boy Scout version, and even one in an original box!
We keep meaning to post a little bit about each one (so we don’t forget where they all came from) and the price we paid but on average, we’ve gotten them for $20-$65 (although the $65 was for the Toas-Tite in the original box with the original instruction booklet in almost mint condition).
In any case, for your reading and Toas-Tite-buying pleasure…we’ve added a whole page on How To Buy A Toas-Tite.
