If the rust is so easy to remove it, why doesn't the seller do it? Same with "tune ups", and carb cleanings.

I spend a lot of time on CG and make offers to people who think they have something made of gold just because it has a name or it is old.

I get called all kinds of names that even a sailor would blush about. Don't bother me- I make a fair offer and they are asking wayyyy too much. Usually after a couple of months or so they will email me back with a more decent offer, but still too high and they get peeved at me again.

Every once in a while I get lucky.

That thing looks like he left it out in the rain,if so the electricals could be toast. I would offer him max $150.00, if he polishes it up maybe another $50.

His "0" key stutters.
Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

When I was looking for a Delta RAS, saw one on CL for $500. Wrote to the seller that it was over priced and offered $125, maybe $150 if it was in really good shape. Seller said it was a 'vintage tool' and worth more. A vintage tool is not a Degas or Renoir painting. It is just old and needs repair to become functional. I wonder if they still have it in some historical setting - like their garage.

I have that model jointer. Bought years ago for a little over $300. That's the Delta model famous for its twisted fence. I know, mine has one!

There are people around here like that too, buy stuff at junk stores or auctions and then try to sell for ridiculous prices. They're trying to catch one unknowing person and fleece them.

His lunchbox planer is a better deal at only $1120.

Maybe I should have asked $2000, for my PM lunchbox planer, instead of $175.
I long for the days when Coke was a soft drink, and Black and Decker was a quality tool.
