Hi All!

So it has come time to part with my Record T-5. I replaced it a while ago and it is just sitting gathering dust. I figure someone can use this plane and put it to work. I placed it on eBay, but figured I will offer it to someone on here.

But I am making the deal for this different on here. See, I am looking for a couple of items and figure maybe someone out there wants to do a little dealing. I am looking for the following:

- Old school wood bodied Jointer plane. Must be in beautiful condition, no junk. 28” length min.
- Auriou Rasps
- What have you got of interest? I like Bedrock planes, Buck Rogers plane, Ulmia planes, Shoulder planes (infill?), (Hand tools only)

You can message me or whatever and let’s make a deal. It is priced at $150.00 on eBay.

Please don’t take this as negative, I’ve just always been curious and never had the chance to ask anyone…

Why list an eBay item for a dollar with a Reserve Not Met tag? Why not just list what you’ll minimally take, and see where it goes from there?

I only ask because every time I see a Reserve Not Met item, I move on because I have no idea even what range the seller wants, and no idea what to bid.

As I said, just curious for the reasooning behind it, maybe it will help me to look closer at Reserve Not Met items

That is a nice plane, by the way.

If you were really interested in an item with a reserve, the reserve tag would not scare you off.

Watch Mecum auctions and you will see how they use a reserve and why.

It costs more to post with a higher price than with a reserve and listed for $1.

This is why I am with LJ instead of others – actual real answers without character attacks!

Thanks so much for the insight. I will check out Mecum auctions – maybe my thing is simple lack of education. You’re right, I have probably missed some sweet deals due to my aversion to Reserve Auctions.

Thanks for answering, and the tips!
