I dont every remember these things selling new for $385. Mostly $240.
Currently they sell new for $200. Last Christmas they could be had
for $160 with the 20% off sale (wished I'd bought one then).
Two bidders bid $200+ for a used machine that looks a little beat up.
People on ebay tickle me. Quite often they pay VERY close or more for things
that can easy be found locally or online for cheaper. I think it's the
competition factor. I've watched things I've sold get a flurry of bids in
the last five minutes that took the price over what I paid in the first
When you figure in the freight, it is alot more than retail.
I won't complain though. I sold a $60 craftsman router table on ebay for
$78 plus $20 freight; and I kept the miter gauge because it fit my sander.
My biggest score was selling skiblades I bought for $120 for $200 plus
freight. I can't explain it.
If you look at other items the winning bidder bought you'll find a couple of
other gems as well. For instance, the $30 HF dovetail jig that he paid $52
for or the $150 HF dust collector that he paid $179.
