Grind shop tooling - most may be job or machine specific, sell by flat rate box

I bought a Buck 6 inch 6-jaw chuck at auction recently. The chuck was part of a lot that included in a small workstation filled with tooling. The shop was a grind shop. I have picked thru what I think I might have use for and before I pitch the rest in the scrap metal pile, I figured I would offer up here. $7 + shipping for a small flat rate box ($9.50) or $20 for a medium flat rate box ($16.50). I suspect much of this tooling was job or machine specific. There are quite a number of dead centers, both male and female ends. The dead centers appear to be 2MT - I have not measured but have lightly inserted into a 2MT socket - most are carbide tipped or carbide socket. I only took overview pics since I don't wat to spend too much time if there is no value. If you do see items of interest, describe your what you might be interested in (example - 2nd image, top row, from left items 12 thru 17) and I'll get specific images or take some quick measurements. Click on the images to get them to expand (and improve the resolution).

3rd pic, top row, what look like bull nose centers, group of 3. Interested in all 3 if they're 2 or 3MT, also the 2 to the left if they're 2 or 3MT.

Neilho:
I'll get back to you tomorrow - not sure if the larger two bull nose dead centers will fit into a small flat rate box (height issue?). Off of the top of my head, not sure how many of the bull nose are carbide tipped. All appear to be 2MT - unless there is some other taper that is virtually the same as 2MT.

I'd like a medium flat rate box of centers. I'd like all the female, and an assortment of male to fill the box. PM your payment details.

I sent you a PM but was not able to add an image. Image of the 5 bull nose dead ctrs to confirm this is what you wanted. I'm willing to add a couple more pcs if there is anything that you are interested in. BTW, I blued a stripe on a couple of the tapers and they make full length contact in a 2MT socket - they just don't have a tang so ejection was not as simple.

I'd like a medium box of the stuff in the upper right corner if possible.

I saw your PM and I'll get back to you tomorrow morning - I still have a question to gbent to complete his box & neilho has gotten a few of the smaller arbors. I'll take a couple of updated pics of what is still available, post them and let you decide then if a medium or small flat rate makes sense.

What remains are many of the arbors, a doodad that rolls a P/N and the cast bracket. Images attached. Small flat rate box has a 1.5 inch depth. To scale the image - the largest arbor is 3.5 inch dia, the medium sized arbors are about 2 inch in dia.

There are some table travel stop dogs there from a Brown & Sharpe #13 grinder.
If that other stuff is from a B&S #13, then those centers are likely B&S #7 taper
and not Morse #2 taper.

Attached image is of the 4 arbors that did not fit into the box. Everything else from the previous image is in the box. Will ship tomorrow - I'll PM you the tracking number.

A cautionary tale...
If a box is heavy enough to make lives difficult for the PO they will destroy it.
To be clear, I don't blame @aribert at all. What I paid doesn't even cover his time to pack and ship me this stuff, and he did his best.
He mailed the box promptly on July 1st and then it vanished from sight until it was suddenly spit out and dropped on my front porch.

It looks like they played football with it, and I hope it hurt them!
The only thing holding it together was the fiberglass tape, and every singe arbor has enough dings and nicks to make them scrap. Sigh.
If you are going to use the USPS flat rate boxes make DAMN sure that they don't rattle or else it's going to end badly. Lesson learned.

Lesson learned for me also. I was trying too aggressively to ship as many arbors as possible. For the dead centers I had many less pcs in about the same sized box and was able to isolate each dead center from the adjoining one.

I need a couple of table travel dogs for my BnS #13 if you have something that will work.
