Very Nice condition Keuffel & Esser wooden slide rule, marked "Keuffel & Esser Co., New York   Pat. May2, '16  Made in USA" - the number 4058 is stamped on the slide

bulleton back side of slider S, L, T
bulleton back of rul - tables of equivalents from US Bureau of Standards Circular No. 47

There are photos of it in the "slide rule museum" here http://www.sliderulemuseum.com/Pickett.htm 

This is a very nice specimen - there are a couple of splashes of India Ink on it, but it isn't all trashed like many this old - the cursor assembly is missing, as you can see in the picture.  This is a very early version of this slide rule.

see this site for excellent information on these rules http://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/ke-sliderule.html

Optical Bench item - gold oval mirror, a half tubular housing, and bearings - it is mostly aluminum. 

There are no markings or makers numbers on this thing - the mirror has some scratches, but it might polish out just fine, - the mirror rides on small ball bearings, and there are two spring loaded detent pins. 

$18 Near new condition, Viewlex slide carrier, for 35mm and 2"X2: slides - for use with models V-3, V-33, V02C and V-22C.  It has V33-L and V35-L written on it in pencil so it may work with those models also.

Standard Electric Time Company timer, Catalog 601-600, 6RPM, Model S-10-BA, 115VAC 60 Hz, the MDAC property tag tells you it was surplussed from McDonnel Douglas Aircraft a long time ago - nice condition, works  $10

 

Also, not pictured, same price - ITC timer company SAR-1HR  one hour timer, has normally open and normally closed 3 prong 115VAC outlets, the time marks have worn off the front (or been washed off with solvent) - but it works perfectly - nice heavy duty unit - would be good for a process timer or dark room or for a heater or other such thing - just mark with a sharpie where the desired time is

 

$15 Refrigeration Controller

Penn All Range pressure switch - separate settings for cut in and cut out pressure, looks to me like it's new.  Model P70CA-1.  Rante 20" to 100 PSIG, opens HI.  Switch rating 20 amps 120V, 17A 220V.  

$15.00 NOS telephone dial number ring black on white

This is a NOS, telephone dial ring (escutcheon) in its original bag - it is a white dial with 
black letters. This would be perfect for restoring a dial type telephone to pristine condition 
(and personally, I think a black telephone with the white dial looks cool, but that's not an 
original configuration)

This is a BECO (Bell Companies, I presume) Dial type lineman's handset. I have tested it 
and I can make calls on it, dial works correctly, etc. When I was younger, I thought it 
would be "way cool" to have one of these hanging from my tool belt - but now it's just a vintage phone item

No, no no, WAIT, it's R@@RE and VINTAGE, and ANTIQUE, and L@@K and all that rot - nah!, 
it's just a very cool old lineman's handset in presentable but not pristine condition. Flexible 
rubber covering shows some abrasion, but is still flexible. The part of the dial that has the 
numbers and letters on it is enamel so you don't wear them off by using it (when did Bell 
stop doing this? before the 50's if I remember right, but they may have continued later for 
these handsets). The cord is cloth covered wire, in good condition, solid copper alligator 
clips work well - the only defect I see is that the cover over the earpiece is missing - 
look at the pictures and judge for yourself.

This is what I think is a heated rock for a lizard or snake or some other basking pet.  I'm not much 
of an expert on these things so I'm selling it AS IS.  It looks to be in good condition - the coloration 
is green and brown, like a moss covered piece of bark.  It is curved like a piece of bark so there is 
an interior part that I suppose an animal might crawl under.  I measured the resistance at 2,000 
ohms, which means that it is about 7 watts, but when I read up on these things, some use 
thermistors to hold a constant temperature, so the wattage may be different.  Approximate 
dimensions are 6.5X7 inches and about 4 inches "thick" due to the curvature - the actual 
thickness of the item is about 1 inch.  I plugged it in and it gets slightly warm, which is what I would expect.
$10 This is a new (but old, so I suppose NOS) Uni-Directional dynamic microphone made by Hosiden, 
a Japanese company.  It is model CDM-1531.  My guess is that this dates from the 1970s, but it's 
only a guess.

The back of the box says:

Unopened pair of TDK Compact Mini Headphones that are supplied, as you can see, in a cassette 
case, and the headphones store in a plastic holder shaped like a cassette, with a reel to wind up the cord. 

The insert has a 1989 date, so these are now 16 years old, never opened - in fact, they may 
have collector value because of that - and anyway, cassettes are so "1980s", right?

On the back, it says the specifications are:

* Frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz
* sensitivity 85dB @ 1kHz
* Maximum input 50 mw
* Impedance 32 ohm
* driver units 13mm ferrite magnets

$11.00 Used DeepSee brand snorkling/SCUBA mask - it's a top quality quality mask with the safety lens 
and silicone rubber strap and face seal.  It is the type that has the cover over your nose so it is 
suitable for SCUBA use as well as snorkling.

I bought this for my daughter in her pre-teens, it is now too small for her and I have no use for it.  
The mask is used, but fully usable.

There are some scratches on the face - these are of course invisible once you are in the water.

With the silicone seals, this mask is hugely better than the crummy cheap black rubber ones 
that you get at a resort or in most rentals.  If you are small, or have a child that will want to 
snorkle or dive, this will make the experience much better than rental gear.

and then a copper connector for the antenna wire.

This is the original owners manual for an Electrolux Model R canister vacuum cleaner, sold from 1959 to 1963 - I listed the vacuum itself a year or so ago for a friend, and he just found this manual.  There is a small tear in the cover, otherwise, I would say this manual is perfect.  The original sales slip, dated 1961 is stapled to the manual also.

analog power supply

This is a home built power supply that I built in the mid 70s - for some reason that I no longer remember, 
I have disconnected the regulator, so it now provides filtered unregulated power (at about plus and minus 
18VDC) - on the front panel are three 5-way binding posts, a power switch, a 24V indicator lamp, 
and a voltage adjustment pot.  The regulator is a dual tracking regulator, so if you reconnect it you 
will have plus and minus voltages - I used this for op-amp circuits at the time and I had it set to 15 v, 
as I recall.  
I have tested that the basic power supply works, but I have not looked at the regulator, 
I'm cleaning up here, this needs to move on to a new home.  The transformer is like new, and all 
parts are high grade components.  $15

$7.50 Tyco Power Pak 56A probably from late 50s or early 60s, - 1-18V DC for trains, 22VAC for accessories, 115VAC input, exactly as pictured - I've added a small On/Off switch to it on the right side (not quite visible in the photo) - used this with a model train set with the kids - made by Scintilla Rail and Power Works, New York - tested it with a light bulb, all seems well
pipe reamers - vintage, $4 each       $8 

Sharp model FXC-12 transistor radio - repair or parts - I believe the radio itself and the clock are OK, it's a mechanical wind-up clock that worked when I wound it up after taking this picture - the radio has no speaker or whip antenna, circuit board looks good, knobs and dial are good - I have been saving this for a long time and I am out of space - so here is your chance.  The case is a hard plastic, the radio uses 6 volts - the battery holder is also missing.  I am guessing that the radio worked when I put it away or I would not have saved it, but this particular radio is very much AS IS - I've set a low price because I hate to throw it away - someone out there must want one of these for their collection or to repair one that they already have.  the back of the radio has a twist to open circular cover that reveals the clock back - it's a regular alarm clock (with a RRRIIINNNNGGG) that has a couple of contacts added to turn the radio on also.   An interesting piece, but I'm out of room.

Aprox dimensions 7 inches X 4 inches X 2 inches thick 

      Sears (made by Sanyo?) B&W TV with 5" screen, AM/FM radio, works - this is of value as a collectible more than as a TV that you would choose to watch - it is in very good condition, but I'm just plain out of space.

Stripall thermal wire stripper like new condition, includes temperature control made by Kinetics
Also have one of these available that is much older and does not have the temperature control
to use, put the wire to be stripped into the jaws and squeeze  
the jaws heat up and melt the insulation very useful for Teflon insulated wire.   
The ones with the temperature control are sold, one without is available for, $45 if I can find it - 
I've been looking all over for it and you know how it is....

But, I have some other strippers (see below)

 

Ideal Industries Model 45-135 Thermal Wire Stripper 

Production type thermal wire stripper with a 9 position switch (off through HI) to set the 
power delivered to the stripper elements.  This was surplus from North American Aviation 
(which became North American Rockwell, then Rockwell, and now it's Boeing).  
115VAC 60 Hz, 1 Amp input.  The date tag (the white tag at the top rear) says "service only", 
Oct 17, 1977, due Jan 17, 1978.  So, one can imagine that it became surplus between those two dates.  
I've had it for a long time. I've tested it (12/2002) and it still works just fine.  
If you want it to look like new, you can unscrew 4 screws on each side, 
and then you can slide the top out and turn it up-side down to expose a nice new gray top, 
and you can swap the sides to expose the nice new gray sides.   
I kind of like it as is because it shows some history.

$45.

OEM jack, 6 1/4 inches high fully closed, works well, from a friend's garage - never rusted or trashed 
 I don't know what car it fits, looks like a GM  or Chrysler product, orignal color was black, 
there is plenty of black paint on that is clearly original.  
No markings that I can find. I have another one that has red paint on it and is a little taller

VINTAGE PLEWS METAL two QUART OIL CAN with POUR SPOUT

 

This item came out of the basement of a friend - it's been there for a very long time, never used.  
2 Quart liquid dispenser - used typically for measuring oil from a bulk container to pour into your car - excellent item for a vintage garage display - it is galvanized, on side (pictured) says "two quart liquid", the other side says NYC-PA aproved type 0 10  and in a triangle it says 61 MINN  in the lip on top it says "fill to point".

   $20 Tube type tone decoder assembly from a Motorola ship to shore (I think) radio that I scrapped a long time ago.  
Tube is a 6AN8.  It has a resonator in a copper case Motorola Vibrasender 131.8 cycles, with the number 16 stamped on it.  
I didn't take it out for the photo, it has a 4 pin plug.  Nicely built subassembly, and no, I don't have a schematic for it.

Audio gear

 

bullet 16 inch GATES turntable (GATES MO 2705-5, serial 11892)  SOLD  - the photo below is just so you can see what the equalizer was originally used with.

 

bullet  this antique equalizer was mounted on the baseboard of the 16 inch turntable - it's a passive equalizer. This equipment probably dates from the late 1930's  $35

This is a tape recorder motor - as you can see in the photo, it is clearly dated 5 1956.  I don't find any other markings suggesting brand, I'm speculating that it is for a Revere (or maybe Wollensak) machine - it looks like what I remember for those machines, but I could be wrong.

It has an aluminum 4 bladed fan, a steel drive wheel that looks like it accommodated both a belt and a wheel (for the capstan and the take-up reel, presumably.  It has cloth covered wire (green/yellow) connected to an old style 2 pin plug.  The unit would hang from a chassis with the drive wheel protruding through a hole, with belts and wheels on top.  The rubber grommets are nice and flexible. 

I've tested it by connecting to 115VAC and it runs well (although a little oil on the bearings after 50 years would make it happier) and appears to have lots of life left in it.

$25 or best offer

 
  VARITRAN brand variable transformer.  This is something like a Variac brand transformer, but instead of a torroidial core, it has a standard transformer configuration with a carbon wheel wiper.  the model number stamped on the name plate is VL-0.  $30

with 110AC input, output is 0-36V 

This unit must be pretty rare, when I do an internet search the only reference I find is this site that you are on now 

   
Phonograph motor and idler wheel.  

Motor is from an inexpensive portable record player.  It is marked 117V, Alliance, Feb 4, '69, 300-8.  Has a second low voltage winding that powered a transistorized amplifier - I believe it's 17VAC.

 

Idler wheel is 2 inches in diameter, shaft is, I believe, 1/4 inch.  it has a pressed in bronze bushing.  I don't know if the idler wheel was from the same phonograph.

$5 each, or make offer for both
