I agree with Bertha and would add that many people simply pay way too much at auctions. But, I live in New England with enough sources for tools that I can afford to wait for what I want. Or maybe I’m just a bottom feeder.

Some people pay more for a spotless plane, thinking it will somehow be worth more in the long run, or work better. I don’t know. There’s one or two in every crowd.

Now, if I’m selling something, it’s fine with me if someone gets into a shooting match.
