Thompson Gages For Sale
Posted 29 September 2005 - 09:03 PM
Well finally worked out the details on how we are going to sell the gages and put them on gunbroker. Includes the George Goll gage and a new gage that is not identified. Pictures are on the website. The reserve is not far off from the opening bid. Tracie Hill inspected and documented most of this collection but several more gages have been found since and are included in the lot. Please let me know if any questions.

Don't you need those for your Thompson repair work or do you use newer tools now?

Phill/Dan These are sold to my first choice and I am sure will be available to all who would like to see them. Best possible scenario for all of us. I am not going to disclose who the lucky new owner is but I am sure most of us can figure it out.
Sgt...these are really good for production where you would need to inspect dimentions quickly. Since we do one offs... dial caliper works just fine.
They found a good home!

Since they were sold outside of the auction, what was the reserve figure?

Z...What happened was another well respected collector (other than yourself)...that is gracious enough to make his collection available to us poor saps that have an interest...made us a reasonable offer. I think that the gages could have possibly brought a little more but out of concern for thier future and with no current bids, we accepted the offer and closed the auction on the buyers word.
I am sorry for all who were interested and did not get a chance to bid but I strongly feel that they ended up in a place that we will all have access to them. That takes a load off of me. I really did not want them to dissappear into a collection and have some widow find them and sell them off to someone who rips her off and breaks up the collection because she did not know what they were...or something.
