I was watching Storage Wars-Texas tonight. Bubba found an old kraut cutter in a unit. He took it to an expert, (a burger shop cook), (can't call the guy a chef). He told Bubba that is was worth $150.00.
I have two in my shop priced at $20 each. They don't sell at that because there are all kinds of them on auction that go for under $10.
Sure makes for good TV to put those big prices on everything.
