would you believe the high bidder as this is written bought one recently for $45.00. Click on his feedback number and then on the number to the extreme right of the page. The third item down is another one http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif His screen name was ciss-something or other.

MY LAST POST ON THIS: I've looked at most of his purchases and he's bought a lot of these catalogs. Anyone explain why? Researching the buyers and sellors it looks legit? I got a spare Harbor Freight, may have to list it http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif : I'M DONE......

I had no idea there was a market for these things. I have been using them for fire starter all these years.

Hay, I'll give him the web address for $20.00.

I have a friend who played one of those online roll playing games, he used to sell items he aquired in the game on ebay. Kid you not, he made 200$ to 300$ a week. The winning bidder would meet him up in the online server to exchange the goods.

that guy has to be pulling some type of scam. i bet he passes himself off as a M-C dealer and hands out "new" catalogs (that he buys on ebay) to really play the scam up. then he probably sells items from the catalog for the list price and buys the stuff for half price on ebay or some other connection he has. i mean, what else would you do with all those catalogs????

Ever try getting a McMaster catalog without an account?It's nearly impossible,even the one or two year old ones are worth money.They have web ordering and catalogs,but the paper catalog is still faster.

If I didn't need my 111 I would sell it http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif Course with the printing cost involved he could be selling them back to McMaster http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Wow, them things get thrown away at work all of the time. We get loads every year from McMaster. I know what I'm going to do on Monday. Anyone want to buy one? Ooops, I bet I just did a no no. Sorry Neil.

That's it!

I'm gonna scan my McMaster Carr catalog, convert it to PDF, and sell the CDs on eBay for $25. ;-)
