Auction results.

Postby Eugene » Mon Nov 11, 2019 3:57 pm

Valve grinding machine, Sioux, mdl. 622N, on stand, with valve seat grinding tool and stones sold for $35.00 at auction this afternoon.

The valve stem chuck was frozen. Axis screws moved. Motor unknown, No hose for coolant, coolant pump unknown. Condition of the stones unknown. Over all appearance was that the machine had been unused for quite a few years.

Auctioneer cried and cried, couldn't get a bid. I finally bid $25-, then I assume what was a bidding shill immediately jumped in with a $35- bid. I quit bidding. The winning bidder had a very shocked look on his face. I'm not bidding against the auction company when no one else wanted the machine.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I just could not agree with you more . That (shill) is the main reason I dont like auctions . We had an auction house just down the street I would walk to every Saturday . I started to recognize 2 guys that bid a lot ( took turns), but rarely "won" anything . One day they both showed up late , I got a sweet deal a big box of old school craftsman socket sets . $20 !! Those guys where good . Saw a beat up box fan (new $20 ) go for $28 :shock: :shock:the last time I went , i saw the two guys get out of the same truck and head inside .
