I suggest you stop whining about loosing out.

Rather learn from the experience and know when it is not in your interest to fool around.

Since you did not advertise it as you stated I would like to take this opportunity to warn the purchaser here and now about the many hands that have glued it's charcoal boards together over the years (not to mention all the blobs of solder all over or the humming mains transformer).....I hope he never offered more than 2k......it's what I would have done...... all things you would have told him of course?

It's called 'artisanal' soldering... Popular in Woodstock.

If I had advertised the unit your comment would apply. However I responded asking for a offer by pm and the response was:

Snooze you loose...

I disagree. Guess I am old school then, not the way I would do things.

Being the compass of morality that he is,I just hope that the "offer he could not refuse" was one that he discounted....I happen to know the purchaser now via pm and he is a pensioner and we all know aboutJozua and his moral compass with pensioners around......
