Steve – So, did the guy who bought the Marantz leveling leg also buy the name plate?
I purchased the contents of a bookcase for a dollar or two bid, and this two book set on the history of two counties in NJ sold for $60.
I bought this in an auction for a few dollars. I don’t have its history, so I can’t really say that its age or origin, but it looks really old and primitive. Sold for $28.
I keep seeing all these articles about how the Queen’s Gambit was increasing the interest in chess, that it was becoming the next pandemic game obsession, and that chess sets were flying off the shelves. Then, I remembered that I had two in my basement waiting to be listing. Duh! This stone one sold for $69, one of my commission items.
I bought this a year or two ago for a few dollars. It’s an interesting fish knife and fork set. Sold for $39.
The last time I picked up items from my commissionee, I received several sets of flatware. I was excited to see that one was sterling. I’ve made quite a bit off those in the past two weeks. Six soup spoons for $258 and two forks and a teaspoon for $98.
This is a hot plate for lab use. I bought it at the beginning of the year with a bunch of vintage scales. Paid about $3, sold for $52.

Steve, you are my hero and inspiration!
Time to part out a couple of turntables I just can’t quite get to work.
And if I’ve managed to fix one old 8-track player ( down to 3 burned out track light indicator bulbs.)
But as Ryanne and Jay said in the podcast, every week you feature several things from my “enthusiasm collection” ( beta machines sell? I have 2! Built models? C’mon) and I want to officially say THANKS

No luck after the cleaning, but easy job dropping in LEDs. Of course, in true scavenger fashion, using only LEDs harvested from broken toys or electronics, still have to find one more. But the colors are COOL!
