Old tool prices are way down on the ‘bay.All you gotta do is look at the google graphs for search terms and you’ll see the substantial plummet in interest.

And as for the UKnot (no pun intended) having as many ebay “gems”...... is the US unreachable from the UK these days? Is the underwater cable/satellites down? Ebay is so worldwide. Methinks the currency conversion might be misleading for some folks. Some of my old tool buddies and old tool pushers routinely shop online/physically in the UK for “deals” That 110$ us translates right now to just over 70 pounds.

And as for UK denizens not being willing to rehab old tools, I’m a tad familiar with the sheddies and model engineers in the UK, some of whom live around the corner from me, and to the best of my knowledge, restoring old tools ain’t one of the things they’re shy to do.
