Talking Record 044 - eBay

Well, I finally got lucky on eBay. Wasn't exactly a steal, but at least I found a good vintage tool in working condition that wasn't ridiculously priced. I never have such luck. Picked up this Record 044 plough plane with all the blades for around $100. Seller is over the pond, so now begins the long wait for shipping.

Looks awesome and with blades! Good find. Stuff sells for a lot less on the other side of the pond, but I've never had the patience or courage to deal with the potential headaches to order from there. Love to hear how it goes and the seller, so I can look them up and buy from them if they do you right.

I ordered something from Japan once - aside from it taking over a month to arrive, it was a good transaction. Hopefully this goes well also. I'll keep you posted. Seller is a long-time eBayer and has a store full of lots of goodies. I almost pulled the trigger on an eggbeater drill too, but I've really been pushing my luck with the CFO lately.

I also have bought things from Japan (Nobody could have possibly guessed that right?) and shipping can take some pretty crazy amounts of time. Rather annoying, but as long as it's a good purchase it's worth it right?



Looks like a nice plane by the way, hope it does ya lots of good in your shop

I have purchased many hand tools on ebay from over the pond over the past several years. Always received items quickly and have been quite satisfied with each tool purchased. Very important to check feedback rating and reviews.

I buy a lot of things from England, postage is not that bad and delivery to Canada is usually quicker than from the USA, go figure.

However it is hit and miss, I ordered some custom made items from a supplier, after a month when I hadn't received them he made another batch and sent them off, they arrived in four days. Shortly after the original order was returned to him, I asked him to send me that one as well, took another month to arrive.

I have an "egg beater" drill someplace around here. If I run across it I will let you know.
