Reminds me of that film Whisky Galore. Old woodworking tools planes mostly, some mathieson, spiers, norris, stanley, preston, might be some bargains if you live local !

Yes, but if bidding just remember that the lots attract a buyers premium (commission) of just under 24% (including VAT) and then VAT of 20% on the sale price on the hammer - so bid £10 in something and it will cost you £14.39 (£10 + commission £2.39 + £2 VAT on sales price). Easy to get carried away and be surprised when the actual bill turns out to be nearly 44% above what you bid! Also, to those who've never bid at auction before, it's worth saying that unlike eBay there are no returns or refunds (except under really exceptional circumstances), so personal inspection is highly advisable before bidding

Thanks for mentioning J&K its a good rule of thumb if you want to pay £15 bid no more than £10 etc
The VAT rate on the goods does vary so factor in

In this case it says no VAT which helps

In addition if you are bidding online there is an additional margin to pay about 6% after VAT if I recollect

In the case of this auction some of the planes look nice but probably talking £100s

Only had a quick look at the wee drams, it looks to me at least, that these are ex Pub/Restaurant lots, all the expected names but more important all the younger dates, you could, with a bit a messing about be able to buy most of these from various supermarkets and as its near that date, then offers will be about, so do some research, otherwise you will end up with a different type of hangover, :shock: :cb

Done auctions many times , missus used to work at one. The point about commission s a good one to bear in mind. The seller normally pays as well so really the auctioneers benefit from both parties. I find being quick is a good tactic to go up to your predetermined limit , don't hesitate to put in the next bid . It makes you look determined and can sometimes put others off , no guarantee though of course.
