Forum rules

1. Keep it clean.
2. Keep the discussion civil.
3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

In his feedback, he has sold a bunch of books in the $5 to $15 range. 100% positive feedback.

I guess he figures it's time to raise his prices !

There has been a rash of these prices on :eBay: lately. Owner's manuals is ratty shape - $50.00 0 $75.00 range. Parts Catalogs in the $150.00 to $300.00 range. Some of these folks just haven't got a grip on reality. I keep watching a couple of sellers - special interest items in my watch list that keep around for my daily yuk... really not sure what they is smokin' but they is smokin' sumtin' :roll:

Based on his other prices, my guess is he got one too many 9s in and intended to say $24.99.

I asked him about it. He said it is 2.5 " thick, weighs 5 lbs., and has about 2000 pages. Probably not out of line if you have any need for it.

Bob, maybe he is setting his prices by weight, not value. :D

Yup, it is still very, very expensive considering what it is. I am not sure who would be in the market for a CU-4 unless it is a really dedicated IH Collector. JIMHO though. I have bought a couple that thick and didn't pay 1/10th that price usually including shipping. Now mind you, I would love to have a CU-4 along with a few others to complement my Potato Machines, MR-5 Mowers etc... Just for the Cub stuff primarily but it would be nice for the other IH stuff as well.

I guess I'm sitting on gold and didn't even know it. I have several 2 1/2" thick old & useless shop manuals laying around, didn't know they were priced by the pound.
