    what would y'all offer for this?

    I know they're rusty as all get out but i also know you won't see these models come around all the time...particularly the first machine of the two in there.

    They should pay you to take them.

    All those machines have been exposed to a lot of water. Considering where they are, possibly salt water. They are junk. My rusted up 99K wasn't anywhere near as bad and it was a big pain in the butt.

    Pass 'em by.

    The machines might have a few salvageable parts, but I would absolutely want that metate and mortar and pestle!

    Well, maybe, just maybe you could salvage them "IF" you soaked them in a 10 gallon bucket of Evapo-Rust.

    Well he gave them to me and i just couldnt say no. Theyre frozen up but the rust doesnt go so.deep that all hope is lost on them. Theyll have to.wait a good while before they get attention though.

    100% agree, their is up-cycling, recycling and then there is the rubbish bin, the latter is where IMO these belong.

    Jenn,

    Since you have them, start soaking them in oil now. Don't wait.
