    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...

    Thanks,

    And how about this one:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-LIE-NIELSEN-...QQcmdZViewItem

    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.

    ugh
