All I see here is awesomeness! But sadly you are a long way from me... I would be there if you were closer. Wish you well.

Keeping an eye on this one. Shipping available for remote bidders correct?

Neither your profile nor your website say where you are located. They probably would want to know whether you are in Alabama or Zimbabwe before committing to shipping.

I shouldn't do it but I'm going to try to check everything out on the preview day. I drive within two blocks of the place on the way to work every morning and never knew it was there.

I got a chance after work today to get to the preview, look around, and meet the owner. Nice guy with a building full of interesting tools and equipment. I wish I had some room, and extra money, for some of the bigger equipment.

If anyone out of town buys any of the smaller stuff I can probably pick it up Friday or Saturday and ship it to you.

Did you check out the leather bundles? How are those?

I didn't look real close at the leather bundles. Lot 82 was in the basement and I wasn't sure how long it had been down there. Lot 245 was in a small room behind some sewing machines and carts which made it very hard to get to. It looked to be in decent shape but I wasn't able to dig through the pile to see if I could use any of it.

A shame too, its been on there for atleast 6 months, probably since they picked it up. Will probably sit there and rust away while they try and make a killing on it. 

Nice looking machine.

They also bought the Puritan chain stitch machine at the same auction for around $100.00  Both showed up on Ebay within a couple weeks of the auction with list prices of $5000-$6000. I would have bought them both if I had somewhere to put them at the time. I did end up with a box of parts to some old machines with quite a few parts for the Puritan machine.

So I don't get it.  Are we complaining about folks turning opportunity into cash flow, or are we bitter because we didn't take the initiative ourselves?  Listing on ebay is free, so they have a great opportunity to let it sit out there until someone who needs the machine and can afford it at the price they're asking.  Sounds like good old American ingenuity and good business sense to me.

I'm sure if you still want the machine(s), you could contact them and offer double what they paid and they would take it.  They're just looking to make some profit.  Double the money now is better than an imaginary ten-x the money in a year.

Not complaining, just documenting facts. The seller may need the money to pay off the medical bills for back injuries sustained while trying to move the monster.

No doubt.  Or they're having to pay storage on the thing.  Needs its own garage space.
