What is this?

An uprighting tool? Missing the drilling arbor? I'll check the catalogs when I get a chance.

Steve,

I had placed a small bid on this uprighting tool, but as I suspected the reserve was very high.

I emailed them the moment it closed and they told me they had the part that was missing. They wanted an offer so I made one. I didn't come close to the $999.00 (not a typo)reserve they had on it.

Wynter,

That is an interesting tool, but I think this is a good example of someone trying to sell something that they don't know the first thing about. They just took a shot in the dark with a most optimistic guess, and like you, I think they're way off base.

I suspect if these people had a nice K&D staking set, they'd figure it to be worth at least $1,200 - $1,500.

I've got a nice K&D Staking Set... you mean it's not worth $1,200?!?!

Damn.

Of course, I'm the one with a $300 screwdriver sharpener...

Lyle,

I really like that $300 screwdriver sharpener, and I'll trade you a nice K&D Staking set for it even! :biggrin:
