Re: No, not for sale, just organizing.

I think its the "unfinished" projects that get us over loaded. Last year I had six unfinished (unstarted) regs... Two are Royal AquaMasters that I resolved to finish up last Spring. They were ugly on the outside but ended up like new inside... I barely got them done and Jerry enticed me with three like new Snark IIIs for $90 total. I already had three Snark IIIs but Geez for only $30 each... They're worth that just for parts. But DANG these were so nice I had to fix them up... Minimal repairs, just hoses and diaphragms. Sold one to Rich so now I have FIVE Snark IIIs. And the other projects got forgotten again for awhile... Cause I'm working on my Tornado/Kidde compressor... Which cost me only $250, how could I resist?

Speaking of investments, can you imagine how rich we'd be if we could find investments at such low prices as these regulators and then so consistently re-build and tune them up to the beautiful top quality and value that these regulators become? Maybe we could impress our wives by comparing them to other things of value... "Honey, the price you could get for this regulator would buy you a 1987 Buick LeSabre". :D

Be careful what you ask for Jerry, at this point my wife is ready to put a stamp on my forehead and write your address on my butt. :) She says hello. Mark
