Is an extensive collection of accurately drawn blocks worth $100 to you?

Wally,
Is there an existing spec. for the light gauge studs?
If not do a google for manufacturers and scan their sites. Most provide CAD
details of their systems.

I have all those blocks at home. I have all the letters A thru Z and all the numbers 0 thru 9 and they are all different colors and really fun to play with. But I didn't realize they might be worth $100. I'd better be careful with them from now on.

maddcad: Considering the discipline you "work" in, I doubt if your blocks would be worth more than about $9.95, including labor to produce. Best not to stray too far from your area of expertise, my friend. ·|·
