What did something like that sell for new?

I don't run with that crowd.
I've never paid that much for any of the machinery in my shop, let alone my hand tools. I don't generally buy things "mint in the original box", though.
Yep, that's more than I've ever paid for any tool... bandsaw, lathe, table saw, you name it. I personally don't get it, especially since it will *never* be used. But...
I guess there are worse things to do with money. It's sure as heck better than collecting bombs (or even hand grenades...
And how about this one:
it's for a pair of new scrapers now selling for $26 plus shipping. They can be had at finetoolj fro $15 shipped.
I'm sure though that if I bought them to sell, the auction would end at $8.
When I started slidding down the slope it was only #1s that were going for insane bucks. The other day I saw a #2 going into orbit. Guys are putting them on their office shelves and desks. Its " manly " ! You gotta love it.
