Default Thickness planers

I need some help here. I was searching the net for thickness planers and came across these on Ebay.
They are selling Dewalt DW735X, s for 120 dollars and free shipping.
When I check the Dewalt site, they go for 5, 6 and 7, hundred
Looks like the same thing.
Do you guys think this is a scam?
I just searched Thickness Planers and several came up with these for sale. Says they have 4 of them.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I noticed that too. The seller has no % on his good or bad ratings, and like you said, no sales.
Scary. Plus that was the only item for sale on his site.

Plus it says the seller is "based in Norway". But the items are sold in Louisville.

Maybe we can get Honestjohn to buy one to see if this is a good sale??

You can be pretty much guaranteed that it is a scam. Amazon has scammers too. I'm seeing those type deals on facebook too like a Milwaukee drill and impact driver set for $60. Mine were $300. Like Stick said, if it sounds too good to be true... If they have feedback it's usually a good idea to read them. The truth is often in the feedback as in didn't receive it, was a cheap knockoff, didn't work, etc.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I agree, I buy a lot of stuff off of Ebay and I always read their feedbacks. Generally, if they are not at 100%, I will look else where.

I'd be willing to accept a bit less than 100%. After all, there are people that are going to complain about anything.
