I am still happy to receive crates. People keep saying they are going to send me one, but never do.

I'll trade weapons for them.

I feel bad, because I think I got a crate one night that was meant for you.

I don't know if they are dropping yet but, according to the wiki, the series 2 crates don't have any regular weapons in them.

I have a handful of spare vintage items in my pack. Basically, they're the leftovers that didn't make a set when I was last trying to craft:

- Vintage Backburner (Tannhauser/Rebel Blob)
- Vintage Southern Hospitality (Koz)
- Vintage Ambassador (Scratched/Timewaster)
- Vintage Kritzkrieg
- Vintage Direct Hit (Danyboy)

I'm not really looking for anything in particular, but if anyone wants a vintage versions of these, I'll happily trade them away for craftable non-vintage items.

Ruki, what will you take for a set of earbuds? I've got a few hats, some extra vintage weapons, and even a crate.

Rebel, I'll trade you a Vintage Billycock for Sam&Max head.

Got another crate, this time a Series #2.

By any chance, there isn't anyone interested in trading a Bloke's Bucket Hat for a Master's Yellow Belt, is there? Act now and I'll throw in a free jar of gold paint!

I could probably be persuaded to go for that deal. Look me up later.

I still have a Soldier's Stash that I would like to trade for any heavy hat, if that interests anyone?

Damnit, forgot I set up a trade last night for the Billycock with someone else. Sorry Ukick.

I'll take that off your hands.

While I'm disappointed and annoyed at the Zynga-ish direction Valve has taken things (getting drops that are useless without paying to unlock them?), I'm not going to just give it away.

So I was dumb and made an Eternal Reward so someone give me a new item from the Mann-Conomy update...please?!

Where does one find recipe listings? I've got about 8 items total i think but for classes i don't play so i figure I'll try and make the stuff i do want but no idea how to do it.

Series 1 crates are essentially crap if you have the guadalajara.
Series 2 its hard to loose with as they include PCP weapons.

Except if you're me and get a dueling game out of it. I have totally struck out on hat crafting and crate opening so far.

I had six spares. I traded one away for Vintage Ze Goggles. The remaining five are among the most powerful bartering chips I have, so I'm saving them for some awesome thing that is yet to come. I can't get any more of these, after all.

Incidentally, I'm done with the Series 1 crates. I'm currently sitting on a half-dozen or so. I'll trade them for any ol' weapon drop.

Oh, and if you're missing a Vintage Weapon, check out my Page 2.

Does anybody want a dueling mini-game? I'll trade it for a cloak & dagger or an eyelander.

Killers Kabuto for trade.

Anyone got an extra huntsman?

Just an FYI Ruki, they are supposedly making the events hat untradeable soon so you may want to get trading with those.

I have a Vintage Eyelander with your name on it!

Looks like the polycount set hat crafting recipes have been found:

So it's like a class specific hat, but with the set weapon instead of class token?

Damn. I might have to start idling again. Otherwise, it'll take a year to get all the set hats.

That's awesome!

NEED METAL!!! Must get soldier hat!!!

Well, time to keep that extra L'Etranger I got in that case.

Got an extra vita-saw tonight. Still looking for Powerjack or Eternal Reward.

If you would prefer to get a Vintage Merryweather, Vintage Billycock, Vintage Mullet, or Sergeant's Drill Hat as opposed to a random hat craft, I will take 3 refined metal for them.

I just cashed in a buttload of idling and ended up with several new hats, including a Hound Dog and Pugilist's Protector. There's also new paints on Page 2.

Anyone needing a Vintage weapon or some crates should check Alt-0; I ran out of inventory space for crafting, so I stored things there.
