It's all about the finances for me right now or I'd be contacting the sellers of the other machines. No new toys until next month. Well, not unless it's local and really cheap....

The St. Paul goodwill has two machines I really wanted to bid on, but their pickup time did not work for me. They both end today . Both would not be doable with shipping. I've got money to spend and haven't been able to find machines I want - mostly because I've got the easier to find ones!

I saw that lotus too. I don't know the final price but at the time it looked like it might go cheap. I hope it goes to someone who wants the machine and not just the parts.
Macybaby: You're only down to 3 or 4 "must have" machines now aren't you? I'm very impressed with what you've been able to put together. Be patient. They'll show. Which machines are you after? I'm happy to flood you with messages about potential keepers.

If anyone has a broken hand crank they're not coveting...and a solid balance wheel for a 66/99, i made one look ugly when i didn't clamp it tight enough in the mill. Pm me please! ? I put one of those cheap Chinese handcranks on an old Bentwood 99. Works nice, just ugly.

The FB group was circling that one. Hard to believe there is so much interest on a pick up machine.

I was bidding on that originally too. I figured it would cost me at least $30 in gas to go get it. I came to my senses and backed off.
