Compressors on Ebay

Post by Greg_Lewis » Sat Dec 28, 2019 3:04 pm

Hey folks, I just saw this on Ebay and the current bid is very low. I thought I should tip off the crowd. Three compressors, one looks to be sized for 15-inch gauge, two others perhaps for 1 1/2 scale.

This could get interesting.

These were at auction a few months ago. I was shocked at how low some of these pieces were going for. This seller is flipping the compressor(s).

No, just remember there was a very large auction a few months ago. There were probably a total of five or so of these compressors being auctioned off. Went rather cheap, too... $300 a pop, I think?

I was advised that they might be non-functioning salesperson's samples, so... Hopefully the buyer appreciates the piece for the $1600 he paid for it last night, if it really is a salesman's model..
