I thought your price was real cheap compared to what I seen it at Walmart.
I bought a spray can to fill in some nail holes in used roofing tin and it filled in the holes great. Needed more, so I bought the liquid quart can next time, but that stuff would not fill in a hole as well. Had to do several layers to fill in gaps.

Self leveling caulk will fill in nail holes in roofing tin real well.

Some have gotten good deals on older but fairly heavy-duty sewing machines at the Goodwill auction site. People who are into bush crafting and outdoors stuff like to sew canvas and tarp material.

40 years ago, my wife was a dressmaker and used a treadle machine. Still sews a good bit. If she sees a picture of an outfit she likes, she'll sketch it out and draw her own pattern. Or she'll buy something on rock-bottom closeout, rip it up and redo it to fit and suit her. It's often cheaper than buying cloth.

This gave me a good chuckle...

I have a Speedy Stitcher and it has come in handy on several occasions. Also a few grommet kits that came in an auction lot. I've been known to sew rips in clothing with a needle/thread "kit". My wife sews a little bit but nothing from patterns. My mom was a sewing maniac. Sewed a whole bunch of stuff. And knitted. I still have this quilt from her probably over 50 years old...

I seem to collect sewing machines, and not by choice. I have two White Rotaries, one treadle and one electric. I have my Grandmother,s Sears treadle machine. All of these have all the attachments. A Singer electric and two sergers, one a Singer and one a White. I learned to sew in a boat yard sewing sails. In college anytime I used the sewing machine (it was in the girls dorm) I ended up sewing things for the girls. It was a good way to meet them.
