Was watching ebay the other day when a set of Lie Nielsen A2 tools steel
chisels with leather pouch came up for auction. First thing I noticed was
they had rosewood handles. Hmmm, Lie Nielsen doesn't offer a set with
rosewood handles, atleast their site doesn't list one. So I think it must
be something up with this one. That night I go to my woodworkers guild
meeting and low and behold the Canadian LN rep is there with a set of
chisels with rosewood handles. The set on ebay was listed as a buy it now
for $175. The set I was told by the rep retails for $275 and going up soon
to $350. Thats probab;y the best deal on ebay I've seen yet. And to top it
off the guy had paypal buyer protection set up so there was little if any
risk. Shoulda gone for it.
Yeah Mr. smith? Please, if you have that auction page in your watch list or bookmarked
in your browser, do us all a favor and reply with the auction number or the link.
us would like to take a gander at it, cool? The auction numbers work in the eBay
engine. Much appreciated.
So that's the ticket then, search for completed auctions. Thanks Russ. Frankly I
don't think they're worth it. And the price will go UP??? When Harris tools (eBay:
tingosa) is selling sets of 8 *socket* chrome mangenese chisels in a custom wooden
box and cocabolo handles, it's a much better deal.
And no one can say otherwise. Not even me, but they are hugely expensive.
So, take a look at the Harris set, see how they are made and what they cost
in a dutch auction from the maker, and see the the recent feedbacks.
Item (was) 6122900447. You need to check the 'completed items' box to find
a closed auction. Would have been a good deal. Lie-Nielsen does offer the
chisels with rosewood for $25 extra. Sure looks pretty, a shame to hit with
