Krieger Barrel With Custom Fluting. One of a kind piece, the fluting is amazing!

Technically this statement is accurate.

Though it's damn expensive for a tomato stake compared to rebar.

Looks like it might have been a deal gone south for the seller he has 22-250 reamer unused and go gauges fro sale also.

On the theme of WTF! Here is another that I found while drifting around on Utube.

Got to be almost as funny, I think he wanted help "fixing" it.

Pretty sweet deal. The seller has that beaut, a reamer, and a headspace gauge. Seems to be an extravagant way to make a metal flower but I don't understand alot of people's idea of art.

    "WTB - Take off barrels"

    They practice their machine work and for shits and giggles se if the can sell them to recoup some cost for tooling wear.

    Yeah I know. Probably due to the counter offer I sent him.

    With a note that said basically before you flute any more barrels go do your research on the stuff done around the late eighteen hundreds of the turn of the century. ( wish I could find those old documents...)

    My guess is, he had a friend make a bid so we didn't have to put up with our bullshit anymore... LOL

    I hope his friend wins so that the seller has to pay eBay final sale fees and relisting fees.

    Yeah, it's not like it looks like all of the other barrels for sale. The guy is a dick selling a piece of crap and he knows it. I hope his bud shoves it up his a$$ when he can't get his money back.
