Windsor Bicycle, as ridden by Eddie Merckx, bought new in about 1972, Campagnolo Nuovo Record pedals/chainwheel/deraileur and Cinelli handle bars, tube, etc. Absolutely top end bicycle, very light weight. This is the "professional" model, the very high end of this line.
These are more powerful than laser pointers - run nicely with two
AAA cells or AA -
if you would like some, here is a price list
Right now I have 30 of these total - shipping will be no more than $5 no matter how many you order
|RF source selection switch
AMCO brand, $10
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
Scales are: A,B,C,D
on back side of slider S, L, T , on back of rule - tables of equivalents from US Bureau of Standards Circular No. 47
|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
No, no no, WAIT, it's R@@RE and VINTAGE, and ANTIQUE, and L@@K and
all that rot - nah!,
|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 look at the pictures and judge for yourself.
|$8.00||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.
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.
|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.
Frequency Response 100-10,000 Hz
Output Impedance 500 ohms
Sensitivity -82 dB
Made in Japan
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
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.
Military dipole antenna center piece - the ends
unscrew, there is a silicone rubber part inside
|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

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.
But, I have some other strippers (see below)
type thermal wire stripper with a 9 position switch (off through HI) to
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.
|$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.
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
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
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
the cone is stamped "24/750/001" on the back.
