New Auction Today-Nov.2008
      #10658 - Thu Nov 13 2008 02:32 AM

It's been suggested that we hold an auction since there's some traffic here of late.

Well, sounds like a good idea. The proceeds go to Quittintime if you're not familiar with the pitch.

We use them to keep this thing online and perhaps improve a thing or two. To that end, let's start the bidding.

Since there's new folks here that may not know the fine pts, here's one. I bid on occasion. I don't try to run up the bid, I really want the stuff. I'll usually get it started, maybe give it a push here or there to hold interest. If I get the winning bid (rare) it's ok cuz I'll be paying the bills here anyway. At any rate, I don't think I've won one yet-it's been a while and the mind's going.




I'll be the first- 10 dollars



Oh, you want to know what you're bidding on? Well, at this time I can't tell you. Both Bosshog and Notchman have made an offer of some goods-exactly what I cannot say at this time. So, for starters, that's what we're bidding on. SOMETHING>

The auction deadline is currently openended. But let's say we take this thing to............NOON-November 18th.

Alright man, you picked up the jargon at that GE auction.

Might just have to put you in charge of this hear one while I'm In Cog Neeto after the 18th.


Like the man says-we got 11.00..............

do we hear 12?

Screw 12-lets get 15 easy for something you can't see.



Rez, reminds me of the box the Auctioneer holds up.

Box of what?.............beats me, there's something in there.

We could make it a metaphorical box of metaphors...

Alright, throw that in there too.

We've got a box. Luka threw in some metaphors. There's other stuff in the box but what we're not sure.

We've got 11 bucks bid.

Where's your sense of adventure?

Well, I did promise I would come up with something. So here ya go.

We have a Craftsman brand rabbet plane for your bidding pleasure. There is a depth stop on the right side. But the fence that sets the width is missing.

You can see the craftsnam logo on the closeup picture. The number on the blade is 619.3730. I have no idea what it means.

Before I send it off, I'll sharpen the blade on my Tormek grinder. You should be able to shave with it.

I will throw in free shipping to card carrying members of the Republican party. Liberals, democrats, and Splintergroupie will pay actual shipping charges plus a $20 handling fee.













(BTW - I was kiding about the shipping BS, just in case any of you were wondering)

It's always been my rule to top Calvin's bid - so $15 it is.

AND I am a liberal Democrat and will be happy to bid on some poor mis-informed republican's contributions.

Alright Ron! Now we're talking! Thank You!!

Folks here is part of what's in the box. A Craftsman Rabbit Plane from Illinois.



Included of course is the metaphors.

And we haven't heard back from Notchman.

Who knows what else we'll find in the box.


We've got 15.00 from TLE-thanks Terry!


I don't want to be a curmudgeon but............

that is a good start!

I know one of you can do better-how's about 20?

Luka's got pretty big hands, so I'm guessing quite a few.

OK on the metaphors.

Now, why would anybody want to plane a rabbit??

and of course, the rabbit.

Maybe, in a restaraunt, when somebody orders rabbit, says, I want it plane.
Then the chef uses that tool.

It would be a rare rabbit that relished being planed.

I've been handled by better people that you, for a lot less than $20. I consider that gouging!
