    Ouch! That's a steep price for a coupler.

    Any chance you'd be interested in trading it for other D200 parts?

    I'm not far from you.

    I couldn't find any other D series couplers on here to compare it to for price. It's been discontinued for probably about 30 years. What do you think it's worth? I don't need any other parts. Thanks anyway.

    Fifty bucks is the most that I would pay for one.

    Anything over that to me is price gouging.

    No problem.

    Good luck with it.

    If your sale doesn't pan out hit me up.

    I'm literally 20 min away.

    They are indeed scarce, just as several dozen other horse parts are ... but  I wouldnt pay that for it, seems a bit like taking advantage of the situation. If I had one I'd ask $125 and with a bit of persuasion prolly take $100.

    Like I said, I'm not sure what it is worth. I am willing to entertain all serious offers. The $50 offer was too low to me. And judging by your comment, you must feel the same way. I own several Wheel Horses. I have had to pay up sometimes for something that I need. I have read posts where people have paid $400 to get one made. I wasn't sure where to start on the price because there wasn't any comparables. If someone wants it, make a realistic offer.

    $50 to $75 is reasonable depending on who pays shipping costs.

    Used versus new old stock is another matter.

    Most guys putting these things together or maintaining them are not wealthy collectors looking to sell a restored machine for a ton of money.

    Investing $200 or $100 for a single tiny part into a $1200 machine is kind of nuts.

    But it is true what @pacer says that parts are rare but they're not impossible to find.

    Just takes time to come a reasonable person having the part for a reasonable price.

     

    That being said, put up more pics showing the other side and a well lit close up shot of the the teeth.

    DavidP,

    Let it go. I think you need to buy one from someone else. This has been the biggest hassle in my 9 years of being a member on Red Square. Usually everything on here is positive. There are a bunch of great people on here. I don't want to tie up this thread with a bunch of back and forth banter. I will not respond to any more of your messages.

    I’m not choosing sides on this one just offering my opinion. (And you know what opinions are like)
    It’s a free market. (As of right now at least) Your part your price. If the buyer doesn’t like it he doesn’t have to buy it. 
    Unless there’s a state of emergency declared on wheel horse parts then you can charge what ever you want. If it’s too high or unreasonable you will have a house full of crap and the producers of “Hoarders” will be knocking at your door.
    All one can do is make an offer of what you want to spend and walk away.

    This is a hobby therefore, it should be expendable money. If you are spending family funds on wheel horse parts and not paying your mortgage or the electric bill or, your kids are going trough the neighborhood trash cans looking for lunch, I suggest you seek counseling.

    Once again just an opinion from a slanted, misguided baby boomer who’s parents engrained into me setting priority’s and conflict resolution.
