    Overlooking the cost of making them ourselves, not looking bad right now at 60 a pop considering how rare they are to come by. At least thats how my brain is seeing it after a hectic day at the office...

    Well I have put in a maximum bid, and it says my bid does not meet the reserve.. I know my bid was much larger then what it sits at right now. and they can stay there.

    I dont get why sellers still use the reserve not met method. Just start the auction at your lowest selling point and be done with it. Hopefully someone can still pick these up at a descent price, but from the sounds of things the reserve is quite high.

    wonder how much they will do.

    Ive seen them go for anything between 100 $ and 1500 $ each on ebay.

    New they are nearly 3000 $

    I think he might have finally gotten a clue that without an 1830 form he wasn't going to make a killing off of two $50 switches.

    Feedback looks good as a seller, I don't think he knows what he has there and over-valued it a bit at first. Yeah, they're expensive switches, but without the 1830 they aren't worth squat to an FAA repair facility. The only thing they are worth is surplus or scrap. Except to us, of course.

    I've never bought from him so caveat emptor applies here.

    a simmer doesnt need a 1830. So he will be getting whatever we are willing to pay. And when someone wants those and is willing to pay alot, these prices can go skyhigh.

    As said in my previous message. I have seen these go for 100 $ each...but i have also seen them go for over 1000.

    Last year someone listed a pair with a "buy it now" option of 1200 dollars. Nobody made a bid. The same seller reslists them a few weeks later with "no reserve". Over 30 bidders and they went for around 1500 $ a pair.

    not the amount of money i would be willing to pay for them. I have been offered rediculous amounts for mine by simbuilders (but im not selling them).

    Prices for parts labeled as 737 parts are going skyhigh the last few years. Firepanel for up to 1000 $ , aircon/packs panels for the same amount.

    I have seen Honeywell locked toggle switches listed (and sold) for a price HIGHER than the price new from a dealer !

    I've seen parts labeled as 737 parts that have NEVER been in a 737. A garantuee to drive the price up.

    Seems we all are getting blind when we see 737 parts.

    Fortunately i see prices go down again now. packs panels for less than 200 $, Still alot of money, but better than 1000$

    A listing last month of 2 fireswitches, a squishy oxygen mask, mask container and a box full of switches and knobs went for 6 or 700 $. Someone got a good deal there.

    But anyway. If demand is high, prices go up.

    So i'm really curious for how much they will go.

    And whats with all these anonymous auctions ?
