    I have a 2007 Chevy Pickup with less rust. In Minnesota we use lots of salt on the roads - my P.U. is worth about 250 bucks. Caveat emptor -- let the buyer beware!

    I just bought some equipment from a big manufacturer and their sense of value was really screwed on most of the stuff. The plant manager thought that the giant old manual stuff that was worn out and/or broken was worth top dollar whereas late model CNC mills were 1/2 of scrap price with free loading. I was happy to cherry pick what I wanted, but left scratching my head. I kinda figured they'd ask me to just haul off the crap I didn't want to pay for, but nope, they're happy to just let it sit there in the way until someone wants to pay too much for it.

    Some big old manual stuff can be worth a bunch even in rough shape, but that Ebay lathe is not in that category.

    I have been to a few auctions where Scott Hall was bidding on machines like the "good old days" of Reliable. There was an Excello mill at Beechcraft in a shed where the junk was moved, I wanted the head for my K&T. He out bid me to 1200, I then just for grins keep pushing, he ended up paying 21-2200? Plus a buyers fee. Same thing on a drill press. I am not sure what he got given to him, he was payin over retail for junk at the auctions I attended a few years ago.

    You sly dog, you!

    I guess some people don't know when to throw in the towel. Doubt those items could be sold in a way he could recoup the loses.

    Four grand I could see ... they had to move it, research it, write it up, maybe hook electric to it, talk to people, all that. It's the guys who want 40 that amaze me.

    That's the whole idea behind an auction.. You get a half dozen guys with polka dot welding hats standing around bidding against each other with the idea of "that sob ain't gonna get it away from me", and the prices skyrocket.. Usually the thing I wanted to bid on was the last one on the list behind all the jeep trailers, pallets of 671 parts, etc....I stopped going to those years ago.... Cheers; Ramsay 1

    Yep - but I still find it some of the better entertainment around here. But then I have been accused of having a sick sense of humor.....

    As my sister says "it's cheap entertainment." LOL.... Never ceases to amaze me how people will pay high dollars for something.. I once wanted to bid on a Dodge M37 for parts for the one I was driving... The "parts truck" was really rough but had some good hard parts on it so I figured about 300 oughtta do it.. WRONG! The "welders" started bidding on it and it went for 800.. Heck, I paid 1200 for my driver and it had a crate full of new parts and a brand new Braden winch still in the crate with it and I drove it all home! And of course, this was the last item in the bid list.....Ramsay 1

    Happens all the time. New owner or manager prices the giant old manual stuff by comparison instead of knowledge. It probably was 100% depreciated by then, so he just see's $$$$.00's. The CNC's [run to hell, sans tooling] were probably priced according input from accounting department and disgusted foreman at has-been programming.
