Monarch 10ee carriage cross feed stops: Worth?
I apologize in advance if I am posting this in the wrong area. I came across a number of Monarch 10ee carriage and cross feed stops. At first there was the temptation to adapt some of them onto my current lathe (not a Monarch 10ee) but decided against it. So I was planning to put them up forsale in the PM Classified area. But in my searching on the internet I have not been able to find much in the way of what would be a reasonable price for such items. I can only find a picture of the cross feed slide stop on lathes.co.uk. Do you have any suggestions?
Not sure why you havn't gotten any posts on this but maybe your PM box is full;-)
The only one I know of that has all those toys on the list is Russ.
you have a couple of the carriage dial indicators and mounts, one V way stop, one carrage 4 position stop, one fixed carriage stoip, and the 4 position crosslide stop - Rus has the only one I have heard of although my machine came with one originally according to the build slip. I'd love to have that but probaly cant give you what it would go for on ebay.
Oh yea one of the little pieces is for the ELSR the one with the angles -I made one to replace a broken one in the parts I got to add ELSR.
I'll only have sparodic internet access for a few days if you want to send me a message. I did not see a post on thes in the forsale section but maybe I missed it.
I don't know what to value these at but, the dial diameter set ups are pretty rare. The little angle stop for the fixture requires a slot in the cross slide. Russ has a later design with external mounting holes, mine is like the one you have, the top has to be removed to access the mounting bolts. Oddly mine was missing the bezel and lens when I got it also, I made a ring and put in a plastic lens.
If you are willing to set up properly mated lots of the items on ebay, I am sure the members would help you craft the descriptions, determine what goes with what, and what the starting bids should be.
Of course, if the guys say "don't know what it's called, just tell us your price", I guess you are on your own
There are plenty of $10,000 start bid auctions on ebay, just to play it safe, it seems.
So you could start at $10,000, I guess.
I would be interested in #1 and #3.
Let me know what your asking for them or an e-Bay link.
Thanks everyone for the input. You are probably correct that Ebay would probably had the maximum return. Even though I am one of Ebay's very early users (back before it was called Ebay), their combination of Paypal only, no buyer feedback, and buyer bias has made me leery of selling much anymore, especially something used in not absolutely brand new condition. I did get one e-mail with a suggested worth (and an offer to buy it for that), so I went with it.
