Coca Cola Chest type Vending Machine
Coke chest type cooler. Runs when plugged in and cools as well. This has the agitator motor in the chest above and that also functions. Sitting many years, and has presentable patina. I would recommend a new cord. Great for display or use for parties! Easy restoration if you want a perfect one. Notice the bottle opener is still intact! Rolls on casters. $ 700.00 O.B.O.
Antique “United Sates” generator
Old US generator. Probably 1940's or 1950's. Has the "Frankenstein" look with open light bulbs etc.! The Briggs and Stratton engine on this set is VERY well made with all kinds of non-standard stuff like water resistant spark plug, special carburetor, tip-over switches and the like. I am confident this would run, as for generate, it would probably need to be cleaned and sorted. Nice project. This seems to have a winding for both 6 VDC and 110 VAC! A great addition to that old WWII Jeep for sticky situations! $ 75.00
Old schoolhouse clock
Old schoolhouse clock that has had some work done in the past. Cabinet is in great condition, as is movement (works!). Sadly the pendulum has been separated at some point. Easy to fix or convert to quartz. Nice look! $60.00
Spool style bed parts
Headboard and foot board from the "spool" style of construction. Bed dates from the time period of ropes to hold up the mattress. Some water stains, and missing the two side rails. Great project to make modern bed or re-purpose as a cool bench! No rot! $50.00
Royal Outboard Motor
1950's Royal outboard motor. A bit odd to find this brand. Turns over: gummy from sitting around. Clean undercover and out. Would make a great project. $125.00 Sorry, SOLD!
1940’s Johnson Outboard motor
I do not know the story behind this engine. It came here due to the cool styling, and the fact that it looked as if it were well cared for. Turns over and seems to have compression. May run?! The nice thing is that the parts to keep these going are now available again through the various antique outboard clubs across the USA. $ 75.00
18” Newtonian deep space telescope
If you dare to be different, this is for you! This telescope was home-built by several engineers over several years. It is of the Newtonian type, and has an 18" mirror which has been carefully protected. The unit was used for years in a roll-off structure and was taken out of service and dismantled when the group lost their rights to the property. It has a very robust frame that is in three modules. There is a geosynchronous motor on one of the pieces. The whole unit will fit in an 8 ft pickup truck. It would require a concrete pad to be poured, and a structure to enclose it, however, beyond a good cleaning and careful setup, you could be peering into deep space as they did before! I have been told by several experts that the mirror in this unit was many thousands of dollars when purchased. HUGE discount on the mirror alone; everything else is free! Sorry sold!
Historic items not related to stoves
Although we are NOT an antique shop in the traditional sense of the term, we do sometimes find ourselves with items that do not relate to stoves directly . Like all people who value the achievements of past generations, we can not bear to see some things go to the dump or fall victim to the scrap drives. We have an eye for good design and for items with that "CHIC" appeal, and we do our very best to save those things and get them into the hands of people who will cherish them and be good stewards over them. Please feel free to view our items that are outside the realm of stoves.
Economy Hit and Miss Gas engine
Here is an Economy Hit and Miss gasoline engine from the first quarter of the twentieth century. This engine is a model "E" and I was told by a historian that the serial # indicates first year production for this model. Ignition is via igniter, not a magneto. I used to teach in a Middle School, and we would rebuild one of these engines each year with my 6th grade class. I have quite a flock of these now, and some must go! This particular engine was a COMPLETE tear down to the last little part and a full restoration was performed. This has new bearings all around, wrist pin was ground, rings, oiler, etc. as well as an automotive quality paint job. It is also fitted with a copper gas tank as the originals rust out. If you like to see mechanical motion, and hear super slow running engines, this one is for you! Ready to work or show! $ 1200.00 OBO on wheel barrow type cart. We can load it for you.
Art deco bed/ King size?
Art deco era bed with interesting wood marquetry work. We have the headboard foot board and two sides. Might need a touch up here and there. Priced appropriately at $ 30.00
