I've been watching this for a while. Remember when Jaegers used to sell these? A friend bought one as a gift for his nephew, I never looked through the little thing. He said it was pretty good.

Wow, good find. I wonder if the EPs use a microscope-standard barrel dia.? Looks pretty narrow.

i think that scope was the 7th item on my ebay list I posted earlier. Also, I swear I have seen a thread on this scope here on cloudy nights classic.

Yep, it was on your list. Just saw that. Must have missed that thread, then again I've only been frequenting this site a little over a year.

OK Jim. You are no longer the high bidder on the 4" Unitron

That is a good point Steve. However, I think that the seller gets more people interested this way. Sort of like a dangling a carrot out there. If the seller starts at $3500 a lot of people would take one look and never look back. This way more people are going check back to see what the price is and maybe think that they want to give it a shot. I know Ebay discourages people from using a reserve because they claim you will get more bidders without one and maybe a higher final price. A lot of sellers are afraid that without a reserve they will not get there minimum price. From what I have seen if the item is something that is highly desirable the fair value of the item will reach its goal without any issue. But hey, it is a 4" Unitron, you got to love it




OK, but he states in the ad that the reserve is $3k. Why not just make your first bid $2,999?

And if we know the reserve is $3000 why do we not bid $3000?

The ad states that the reserve is "over" 3,000.

I am sure there are other bidders out there that are very interested. I would buy it just to get that little tool box.
Between the super unihex, the unitron light, the weight driven drive that little tool box is sought after.
