    I lost 3 bids before winning this one. I am, in a way, very glad to lose the others because this one is mint. I tuned it up, set it up, then scrapped it up.

    I have been needing this bad boy. Now, me and Mr.Wild Grain Mahogany can be friends.

    I can see where e-Bay can get addicting. I need a Record 044. LOL

    Nice win, John! It’s in great shape… even got the sticker on it.

    eBay is fun when you are winning. 🙂

    Thanks everyone.

    I agree David, I could not believe the difference in the cut, especially on the wild grain.

    I knew when Mr. Sellers use it when his trusty No. 4 was struggling with the interlocking gain, it was time to start looking for one.

    I like using card scrapers, but this No. 80 is a much needed tool in my arsenal.
