I bid on it a couple times and 1 other person was outbidding my by a few dollars each time so I stopped. Currently at $360 with 6 hours to go and it s been up for 4 days. We ll see how many people bid at the last minute. If it does go for too much I m going to pick up the DW734, doesn t seem like the DW735 is worth $200 more.

Are you sure you’re being outbid each time and not pushing an already higher bid even higher? Not sure what auction you’re watching but if someone already has a $500 bid in place you won’t be the top bidder until your bid exceeds theirs. Allot of those MachineryMax type auctions have buyers that scalp bids in the last minutes before they close. Dollars to doughnuts, that if that planer is a bargain at $500 it’ll sell for considerably more. I’ve been frustrated by such auctions myself in the past and have found that it’s very nearly impossible to “steal” anything.
