Yesterday I got a lead on 2 clockface pumps. First one is a Bowser Xacto Sentry 310 project pump started by someone else. It is all apart & in primer & is complete minus the skins. The second pump is a Wayne 861 that is also all apart. The Wayne is also missing the skins along with the base. Im sure both of these pumps are missing some small parts once you start putting them back together. Plus the pumps are about 4 hours away from me one way. The guy said he wanted $1500 for both pumps witch I know is a good deal but with the drive & the condition of them is it really worth it? Both of these pumps are ones I would like to have but I am totally on the fence about them. Just thought I would see what the rest of you thought about this. Thanks Brad wink

I was thinking without them LoL. Well maybe one my antique nut that goes to shows with me. Here he is imitating the Red Crown boy LoL smile
I cherish the time I have with him "& the others too" a lot. 2 years ago he was diagnosed with high functioning autism. It was a real rough road & still is at times but thats part of it smile



Original Red Crown boy.

I would jump on those in minute, if they were in my neck of the woods..What I normally try and do when they're that far away, is pay some sort of deposit right away....then make arrangements to pick up later. This way it gives me time to find other stuff to pick up on the way, or in that area...It brings your cost per unit down, plus you get to go picking>!

Well I think I will go ahead & get the pumps. I talked to the guy & we came to the agreement that I could put half down on the pumps now & pay the rest when I get there in a couple weeks to get them. After talking with him a bit I think this will be a good lead. He says he has other stuff I might be interested in & he knows other people that has some stuff too. Sometimes you just never know where these things can take you LoL smile
