|First I would like to thank Stan Adams for the heads up about the auction. If you participated I'd like to see what you bid on and what you ended up with. I certainly couldn't tell much by the original pictures.
I bid on about 14 lots at one point or other, and ended up winning one lot... the one with my lowest high bid. I was really after a 6 wing Emerson. Here's the picture I had to go by:
At $60 (over $81 with fees & taxes) I think I did OK, as long as I can get at least one working. The big surprise was the Century skeletal. I wasn't even sure it was a skeletal. It has a brass cage and blades, something I couldn't tell by the picture, and the paint looks to be original with speed control lettering even. Unfortunately the Emerson has a crunched switch. Haven't opened it to see if its fixable yet.
Hope someone here won something...
