    suggest you view the whole section of pages from 201 to 10 pages after there is more goodies of same.

    I agree if I had the Home to store it and use it in all of that would be here and change out of $500k would be not much.

    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Default Auction Report

    As I feared...... 100K wouldn't have come close to getting the toys I liked....... the Rose engine brought $ 190,000. and the ivory chisels did a nice $ 36,000......... it was fun to watch and I knew all along I wasn't even get in a bid. I am so glad I have what I have. As for the books, and this was the largest collection of lathe books probably ever offered, it was Warren Ogden's library.... they went reasonable and I had most of the ones I had any interest in so I behaved there too....... now for Ted's watches, the estimates were very low for the most part.... anyone who knew watches knew that, I chased a couple of them but once again struck out. I remember playing with a tray of his good watches, I even worked on a few of them, I knew they were good.... now I know that tray was about $ 450 K good.... and for the buyers you add 20% plus tax to all these numbers. Just goes to show buy good stuff......... wonder who got the rose engine and chisels (same bidder I think)????????

    From this thread:

    I wish I had an extra 100K for this lathe!
    So much timber, so little time.
