Below is a photo of a timer that fetched $129.75
I was surprised to see it sell for that high of a price. Is it super rare or was that just another bidding war?
Not sure why that timer was worth that much to two bidders. It is $128.75 higher in price than the last four timers I bought.
However it is $320.25 cheaper than an E timer so it can be considered a bargain compared to that.
Unique and oddball aftermarket timers can command good money from timer collectors.
That timer is not a typical roller timer:
Crazy eBay is all I can say!
Have two of those timers, need to put on on eBay for sure.
Paid $5 for this one at Chickasha, Bob's Antique Auto parts had a box full of different ones, all $5 each.
The guts of the Duplex has 4 contact points, like a distributor, spring loaded ramp opens them when the roller spins around.
Can't believe anyone would pay over $100 for this clunk of a timer
Dan - John Regan would tell us (and rightfully so) that that's a design that (unnecessarily) has 4 times as much chance of possible trouble!
There is another one on ebay right now.
If you are a timer pervert, and that one is missing from your collection, you will pay what you think its worth.
Didn't take you long to list your extra timer there, Dan ! I don't have that particular timer in my collection but I do have a sense of moderation.
Just trying to make some Christmas ca$h
Hope a bidding frenzy happens for me.....
I hear ya !!! Nice timer.
Looks to me like someone designed a ball bearing roller, then re-designed the timer to deal with the electrical erosion of the ball bearings in the roller....
Notice how the points are shot in that photo of the used one posted above?
