Not the case here. Several "vendors" have the same dies in stock.

Ok, if "here" is the case.

Like Pawn Shops and Estate Auctions. Suckers pay 10% more for used than new.

Free market economy. People get jealous when other people make money.

Instead of bitching, go to Amazon snd buy 10 sets of the $36.00 dies, list on ebay, sell for $56.00. $200 profit, easy Peasy.




Well, shit.

I'm a year and a half from retirement after a 47-year career of daily drudgery, misery, and general unpleasantry...and I find this out now... so I figure I got sumpin to bitch about. No one bothered to explain free enterprise to me, I thought we had to work for a living.

LOL.


Dimocraps know better and appreciate you, dont they Leroy and Suckermore?

When Ebay first became big a co-worker of mine got his kicks showing me all the weird stuff you could find on it.

First I challenged him with “ find me an human eyeball” ... sure enough someone was selling Glass eyes !!!
Since that was there I went for Broke —- Find me a Breast Implant -..

LOL... Breast Implant Barbie came up ... someone had modified Barbie to look like dolly pardon.

Needless to say - he won!

So, nobody should buy things for higher prices than Amazon? I mean like he could have Ebay bucks to spend.

I have posted Lee RGB dies here. Got $19 into them. I can't sell for less than $27.30 shipped. Are they worth $19 or $27?

The BiMart here had .45 auto FMJ for the first time in a while, some 9mm Hornady Critical Defense and not much else. Die prices are up, 3 die sets are $59, no powder, no primers, few component bullets. I go and look but I really don’t need anything.

Yep. Agreed. I saw a broken HSS 1/2" end mill for more than a new carbide cutter on the fleabay last night... LOL

A marketplace version for me today.

Listed a flatscreen tv late real early this am for $75. Had a little spot where there was a burn in the screen (small dark spot off to the side).

Guy immediately offered me $50. I responded to him later and told him I would sell it to him. Just anted it done today.

He responded, would you do $40.

I replied that I wouldn't sell it to him for $200 now.

I despise people that do not know how to consummate a deal and live up to their word.

For those types of people I ask if they want special pricing. Always entertaining.
