Windsor Bicycle, as ridden by Eddie Merckx, bought new in about 1972, Campagnolo Nuovo Record pedals/chainwheel/deraileur and Cinelli handle bars, tube, etc. Absolutely top end bicycle, very light weight. This is the "professional" model, the very high end of this line.
|RF source selection switch AMCO brand, $10|
|There are no markings or makers numbers on this thing - the mirror has some scratches, but it might polish out just fine, - the mirror rides on small ball bearings, and there are two spring loaded detent pins.||Optical Bench item - gold oval mirror, a half tubular housing, and bearings - it is mostly aluminum $8|

|This is a BECO (Bell Companies, I presume) Dial type

and I can make calls on it, dial works correctly, etc. When I was younger, I thought it
would be "way cool" to have one of these hanging from my tool belt - but now it's just a vintage phone item look at the pictures and judge for yourself.

$5$18This is the original owners manual for an Electrolux Model R canister vacuum cleaner, sold from 1959 to 1963 - I listed the vacuum itself a year or so ago for a friend, and he just found this manual. There is a small tear in the cover, otherwise, I would say this manual is perfect. The original sales slip, dated 1961 is stapled to the manual also.

| This is a home built power supply that I built in the mid 70s - for
some reason that I no longer remember, I have disconnected the
regulator, so it now provides filtered unregulated power (at about plus
and minus 18VDC) - on the front panel are three 5-way binding posts, a
power switch, a 24V indicator lamp, and a voltage adjustment pot.
The regulator is a dual tracking regulator, so if you reconnect it you will have plus and minus voltages - I used this for op-amp circuits at
the time and I had it set to 15 v, as I recall.
I have tested that the basic power supply works, but I have not looked at the regulator,
I'm cleaning up here, this needs to move on to a new home.
The transformer is like new, and all parts are high grade components.
|$7.50||Tyco Power Pak 56A probably from late 50s or
early 60s, - 1-18V DC for trains, 22VAC for accessories, 115VAC
input, exactly as pictured - I've added a small On/Off switch to
it on the right side (not quite visible in the photo) - used
this with a model train set with the
kids - made by Scintilla Rail and Power Works, New York - tested it with
a light bulb, all seems well

collection -$15 ea � this is a plastic tube with replacement dial pointers,
the white and orange ones did not originally come with the set �
they are ones I saved from discarded radios.
|click here for data sheet, back side of data sheet||Caltron model 100 Phono cartrige - new, in box, but quite
old - |
includes data sheet for the cartridge, for the tone arm (not included) and for a
phono preamp (also not included)
But, I have some other strippers (see below)
type thermal wire stripper with a 9 position switch (off through HI) to
power delivered to the stripper elements. This was surplus from North American Aviation
(which became North American Rockwell, then Rockwell, and now it's Boeing).
115VAC 60 Hz, 1 Amp input. The date tag (the white tag at the top rear) says "service only",
Oct 17, 1977, due Jan 17, 1978. So, one can imagine that it became surplus between those two dates.
I've had it for a long time. I've tested it (12/2002) and it still works just fine.
If you want it to look like new, you can unscrew 4 screws on each side,
and then you can slide the top out and turn it up-side down to expose a nice new gray top,
and you can swap the sides to expose the nice new gray sides.
I kind of like it as is because it shows some history.
This is a tape recorder motor - as you can see in the photo, it is clearly dated 5 1956. I don't find any other markings suggesting brand, I'm speculating that it is for a Revere (or maybe Wollensak) machine - it looks like what I remember for those machines, but I could be wrong.
It has an aluminum 4 bladed fan, a steel drive wheel that looks like it accommodated both a belt and a wheel (for the capstan and the take-up reel, presumably. It has cloth covered wire (green/yellow) connected to an old style 2 pin plug. The unit would hang from a chassis with the drive wheel protruding through a hole, with belts and wheels on top. The rubber grommets are nice and flexible.
I've tested it by connecting to 115VAC and it runs well (although a little oil on the bearings after 50 years would make it happier) and appears to have lots of life left in it.
$15 or best offer
with 110AC input, output is 0-36V
This unit must be pretty rare, when I do an internet search the only reference I find is this site that you are on now
Motor is from an inexpensive portable record player. It is marked 117V, Alliance, Feb 4, '69, 300-8. Has a second low voltage winding that powered a transistorized amplifier - I believe it's 17VAC.
Idler wheel is 2 inches in diameter, shaft is, I believe, 1/4 inch. it has a pressed in bronze bushing. I don't know if the idler wheel was from the same phonograph.
$5 each, or make offer for both
