I really don't know all the extra facts that don't pertain to this deal, but may explain why, like trying to get a vehicle back on the road and not having another axle to put in its place, plus not having time to drive it back and still be out all the time and gas money, and may have had parts to replace the broken ones.
So, although he could make the axle work for what he was doing, it was not worth $500, or even $375, but at that point he may have been out even more, and just wanted the situation done and get his vehicle back on track...

I've been in a similar situation and paid $1500 for a front axle needed for a run with only a couple weeks, but if I have a couple months I would not have paid that much.

How much was his time and gas worth? Randy wasn't offering that back.

Now days I pretty much expect that the buyer will bring someone along to help load axles even if I am there. I am getting older and they are getting heavier.

PS I also hate trying to type on my net book. I think that my fingers might be a little to fat for this.
Cold enough? Holy fukc , I think the temperature was -15 before windchill, I had just spent the previous night hanging out with my college buddies who live in chicago on my way home from Iowa, I was COMPLETLEY unprepared to spend 15 minutes digging an axle out from under the fresh snow and load it into a pick up truck. I know I didn't have gloves, I think I was in running shoes, jeans and a t-shirt

I don't recall what I paid, $100 comes to mind, it was a good deal as far as I was concerned.

But my hands are still cold, I want my money back.

Agreed. It doesn't sound to me like he handled it in a very straight up manner at all. I wouldn't want to take the gamble of dealing with him knowing what could happen now.
