I am still working on selling off items from the estate of a good friend of mine who died at the end of 2020 - there are many things I'd like to keep, but his overwhelming collection of stuff has taught me to be much more selective - these books are ones that I think might interest this community. Pricing is as shown plus my actual shipping cost whatever it is. Beware that shipping from the USA to europe has gotten surpisingly expensive, though there are some discounted services.

The numbers with a book listing are my reference numbers, I have a huge spreadsheet of books - if you want the list, message me.

Pictured below are a few - pardon the odd formatting this on-line editing tool is not my friend.

Hi Bill
I have a set of 70's vintage castings for the #9. I think I need that book !
How would you like to handle payment ? PayPal ?
I am in Ohio.
I also noticed in another thread that you may have a few Perkins Spring Coilers. Might one of them also be for sale ?

give me your address, I'll mail you the book and we will then know the postage and you can send me a check, cash, paypal whatever. I have one spring coiler left, I cleaned it up and made it pretty $500, I think it's very cool but if you want it, that will give me some space for something else that is equally or more cool... (want a tesla coil?)

so glad this book got to where it could be used. When I get to laying out the big pile of random model parts I saved from my friend's estate, I may need to buy it back, but first to figure out what I have, and that comes after getting enough room to even think about it.....
