    Why?

    Gage items like this are almost useless without proper certs. Anyone wanting to buy from you will need to have them inspected (at considerable cost), unless it is the homeshop guys....

    Other than one recent optimist (who just DID buy the entire lot of them...) the next-largest market may be as contraceptive devices.



    Place between the knees. Duct-tape legs together to hold in-place, reduce risk of pregnancy.

    Works even better if it is the FEMALE who does that.

    If still in seal peal and priced at 5 cents on the dollar I would think some small size places or home shops would like to have them.

    Why, do you repair flat tires? Or make the little tools to do so?

    I'd like to know more about the 1.5"-3" ring gages you have: pricing, condition, sizes...
    Thread plug gages above 7/8" interest me too.

    I would go through them, take pictures and put them all on Ebay. Advertise them as being in pristine condition, with a buy it now price of about 1.5x what a new one is.

    Well, that's what everyone else on ebay does, isn't it?

    Seriously, if you put them on ebay, someone will buy them.

    Match them up and list on Ebay and here at a reasonable price.
    I bought a set not too long ago off Ebay. I dbl check with wires and thread mikes.
    It's kind of hard to wear out a plug gauge.
    Not everyone has to have certified gauges.

    Uh, Bill? I don't want to speculate about your knowledge of female anatomy, but I've been around enough to know that there's a little more flexibility available to get around such obstacles...

    LOL! "Fair point, Miss Steele".

    But I said "reduce"...not eliminate.

    Whom would - or could - even "make the acquaintancce of..." A guy, Gal - or whimsy - with over 3,000 lbs avoir of gage-grade steel - much of it in protective covering - duct-taped between their knees?

    OY! Talk about a "bikini wax"?

    Bad enough some poor sod had the lot of it on the brain..

    They say there is a website for everything. Probably even that. They probably have conventions.
