My guess would be in the 600 to 800 range. but you never know for sure.....when it comes to auctions
Why, you can buy a brand new one. Dan
It'll be interesting to see now that there is a reproduction available.
But only if the bidder(s) know that. If they don't, who knows where this will go.
I would be asking what kind of steel the reproduction are cast from. Dies are generally made of tool steel so it can cut softer steel. Do not want to use it one time and throw it away.
Interesting topic, as I just repaired a hub with a snap-on thread file, took a couple minutes and the hub cap now screws all the way on...
You can buy the snap-on files for less then $45 including shipping of ebay, I've had mine since the 70's.
Amazing how many people out there in computer land are so unaware what is in the market place! I watch a set of touring rewooding plans go for over 100$ when you can get the same plans for about 55$.
This will go to someone who is into having the old tools. I've found that my modern tools work just fine. Remember that T's were in the era when replaceable sockets were just getting started.
Unless the teeth are chipped, the Stevens, KRW and other era tools work great for what they were intended. The rethreading tool generally goes for high dollars as there were/are not a lot of them. Nice thing about this style, you work out, not in, so you start from clean threads and work to the outside were most of the time the threads were buggered up. The modern type works from the bad threads in.
I'm with Joe. I did mine with a set of Snap On thread files and it worked out great.
