"The kits sold themselves." Lewiston, Me.

Here's your chance to get in on one of the richest
bonanzas in fund raising history. People have taken
instantly to Toolmate because it is a practical,
ingeniously designed and packaged product that every
household needs. It's bought on sight because
customers know the value of a convenient tool set in an
emergency. And, best of all, Toolmate is still selling
at the surprisingly uninflated price of one dollar.
Case Hardened Steel—Guaranteed to Last
Toolmate is anything but a toy. Its screwdriver shafts * ■
are made of case hardened steel and are built to last. >3
Every Toolmate you sell is guaranteed by Revere
Company for two years against any defects in material
or workmanship. In each set there are three phillips
heads and three regular screwdrivers, plus a
screwstarter, a punch and a master high torque
handle. The pocket-size plastic case measures
31/4" x 1" X 33/4".
Toolmates come packaged in convenient carrying
cartons of a dozen each. For starters, you can order
one carton for each member of your group, but odds
are you'll be re-ordering within days as you see the
demand grow. Each Toolmate sells for $1.00 and you
make a healthy profit of 40C on every sale.
Figure it this way:

Remember, these are just starting figures. Your group
can multiply them many times with minimum effort.
