Re: ...

"Sold for" and "Offered at" are two different things.

Look at the completed e-bay listings for the xB. Most of the listings don't meet the reserve and the bidding RARLEY goes over the new price. ...

I don't quite get the need for a $16 dollar tool for the job! Usually just setting the electrode so that is not pointed towards the intake will give you some benefit.
