Minimum Wage 1982 was $3.35
Minimum Wage 2018 is $7.25
So an increase of 216% over 36 years.
That is about a 3-4% rate compounded over 36 years.

RCBS Uniflow Powder Measure $43.50 for a used sone so say $50 new one in 1982.
RCBS Uniflow Powder Measure is $85 today on Amazon
So an increase of 170% over 36 years.
The RCBS Uniflow Powder Measure SHOULD be selling for $108.00 today if it had kept up with minimum wage.

So an an RCBS Uniflow Powder Measure is more affordable today than it was in 1982.
