|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
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
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.

This is a NOS, telephone dial ring (escutcheon) in its original bag -
it is a white dial with

garage - possibly from a wrecked
alarm installation truck a friend of his bought a while ago. everything is AS IS
|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!,
|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:
Uni-Directional Dynamic Microphone
Lightweight - designed dynamic microphone for Hi-Fi music, speech and entertainers.

Unopened pair of TDK Compact Mini Headphones that are supplied, as you can see, in a cassette
|$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.
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

unscrew, there is a silicone rubber part inside
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
note - if you see lines on the image, that's an artifact of the way the browser shows the picture

|pipe reamers - vintage, $4 each||
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,

collection -$15 ea – this is a plastic tube with replacement dial pointers,
the white and orange ones did not originally come with the set –
they are ones I saved from discarded radios.
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)
Industries Model 45-135 Thermal Wire Stripper
type thermal wire stripper with a 9 position switch (off through HI) to
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.
|$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.
|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
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.
