Would you do the same thing for a house, or car?? Someone's selling a house for 200k, are you going to offer 100k first? They'll not only laugh at you (IF the realtor submits the offer) but will probably not even look at any additional offers you make. You're looking at getting a car that cost 60k new, blue book value has it at 50k, are you going to offer 25k? Unless it's "hot" I seriously doubt you'll get much 'negotiations' to happen that way.

I dunno, half of retail for a used hobby product (and at the fanatical end of that hobby so less potential customers) seems reasonable to me...

Blichmann hardware doesn't depreciate like other things do. I sold my 10 gallon BoilerMaker (had it for at least 1-1/2 years, put a decent number of batches through it) and was able to get about 80% of what they currently sell for. Granted a conical has more spots for things to hide, so you need to clean/sanitize it a bit more, but still... Thinking someone won't be insulted by a 50% value offer is just wrong.

A bit harsh I'd say. The offer might be rediculous, even laughable but at worst it just deserves to be ignored. We're not talking about some Snidely Whiplash villain cheating old folks and orphans out of thier property, just a guy making a lowball bid on a classified site. Feather it out a bit.

Well, that escalated quickly...

In his defense, the OP has been responding to me by email. He indicated that email was best as he is not on HBT very often.

Lets all lighten up - it's Christmas for Christ's sake!

Hey, sudbuster. Thanks for the immediate PM. I'm not sure what I did to draw such hatred but it was not meant to offend anybody. Thanks for the warm welcome.
