If you look at the bidding history, it looks like there are 2 people who really want it.

Oh, man, fellas don’t mention Ebay. I’ve dropped a small fortune there. I hadn’t been there in 6 months and and after you posted this I’m there as we speak. I’ve bought and sold there but mostly bought. It can be habit forming.

Haha, I sometimes use ebay as a form of entertainment. The other day I started watching a block of Brazilian Rosewood 14” square X around 3” thick. The bidding started at like $14. I was like holy crap, maybe nobody else will see this and I can snag it up fairly cheap. Well obviously some other people saw it too. It sold for $188 and some change. It was still fun to watch. You get those folks that wait till there is 20 seconds left and jump in there with a high bid so you don’t have time to bid again,haha. Needless to say, I am easily amused.

Brand new, unused, unopened it says in the description.

Reading below, it says a client used it to smooth a small board and then returned it…

Seems a little steep to me for a modern version of the original…

The way I read it, it isn’t a Norris Spiers, but a copy.

Come on it’s a plane! What make it worth that kind of money? Does it really plane n times better than your LV or LN plane? Some people must have more money than they know what to do with…I’ll gladly sell them any of my tools for 3 or 4 times what I paid for them.

Mark, I will send it to you for a trial run for a week if I win it… :)

We all place value on different things…
