    thanks for the link to the facebook page, i will check it out.
    regarding the knife massager, it wansnt new, nor direct from the builder. it was like anothers rummage sale item. originating here to begin with.
    i didnt know there was somebody else posting for sale stuff here,at this time. , i hadnt ran across it. occasionally there also had been carving related books , patterns, posted here on this site by members.
    i still miss that feature .

      Yes sir... I’m looking for exactly the same thing

The publisher (owner of the forum) does not want the liability that goes with sales, so the "rules" we operate by are that items can be listed in the https://forum.woodcarvingillustrated...-business-side but no prices. All transactions and requests for additional info should be handled through private messages. I edited Daroc's post to remove the price line, then explained to him about no pricing in the forums. I also provided a FaceBook page that deals in buying/selling/trading wood carving tools https://www.facebook.com/groups/3533...f=group_browse as another place he might try to sell.

        Thanks for the clarification Claude.. I have been considering for awhile thinning my collection of carving chisels, I have a bunch of duplicates, and I would prefer to offer here than deal with ebay. I'm a little weary of "Collector" chisels and the folks that buy for outrageous prices because they think someone else is gonna pay more. Carving chisels need to be cleaned, sharpened, sharpened some more and USED...often and regularly (my soapbox sorry)

          MJ68,

          As a carver who has frequently bought used tools on eBay, not as convinced that tool collectors are that prevalent. I haven’t done the math but guessing at least 40% of my tools came from eBay. Also judging from questions and comments from those I have sold tools to on eBay nothing leads me to believe any bought tools to sit on a shelf. MTCW.

            Hey Nebraska, sorry for the confusion... was NOT trying to suggest that collectors are buying up the chisels, the sellers are pushing them as "collector" items... seems some of the thinking is the "collector" tag might bring a better/higher price. I troll ebay on a regular basis looking for a specific maker, lots available, folks think they are gold plated.
            I watched an auction for a 12 set collection, 4 in-cannel chisels that I was not sure were made by my maker of choice, watched with interest. About 3 weeks later, those chisels showed back up for sale, as individual chisels, all, buy it now, 30-40% higher price than what the market actually is, nothing was sold at the higher price, guess he still has them. I hope he learns to carve.
            I don't think there are collectors, per se, of carving chisels (other than me and maybe you, and since we both carve, it's ok) just seen an uptick in interest in the older chisels cause folks think they are worth a ton. I think they are valuable, not because of what I can sell them for, the value for me is in the regular use and the satisfaction they bring to the right side of my brain.
