Yes, another auction. It was a long day in Wichita. I saw forum folks Ed Emerson, the Shirks, the Paulsens, and lots of other Model T guys. There were no cars, just lots of parts and some motorcycles. One of them, a 1931 Indian, sold for $50,500! I bought something heavy, so I was one of the last to get loaded, and left at about 8 PM.
Among my haul were four crank shafts, several mag rings, a pallet of rear axle housings, a pre-starter transmission, a box of mostly transmission parts, a tub of hubs, four engine blocks, a front axle assembly and three rear axles, a few generators, some line shaft pulleys, and assorted small parts. As usual, there was lots of good stuff I didn't get because others wanted it more than I did. I bought some things just to keep the scrapper from getting them. With what I did get, the old Suburban was riding mighty low.
The biggest and heaviest item I got was this lathe, made by the Lathe & Morse Company sometime between 1874 and 1891. It was a struggle for four big guys to get it onto the trailer. If I live long enough I'd like to set up a shop with line shaft equipment.
Steve -- I see you also got the line shaft pulleys to go with it. Good score!
The lathe is ridiculously cool. My first thought was "I don't know how they got it on there but it's gonna a PAIN to get it off."
Steve: You have a treasure trove of parts. Now that you have them home and in the back lot what is next? Restore and sell or use on the next project.
Have a great day. will have a Doc's appt next week and will know then just how much I can do. Have not hardly been in the garage since June. Take care

Steve you some good T parts.
Most of what you have didn't lay out in the weather years and years from the looks of it. A good haul and I bet the price was right too.
Nice haul, now any time someone's looking for parts you'll be the go to guy. GRIN.
Yep, getting that lathe into the barn will be a bit cumbersome. My loader tractor needs engine work before I can use it again, so I'll have to use a chain hoist.
Some of the parts are for me and some are to go to Chickasha for fun and profit.
Come visit at the Antique section of Practical Machinist, Steve, when you get going with the lathe
Steve what a neat lathe. I was just in an old shop that still has some of the line shafts up on the ceiling from 100 years ago.What a great score.
Looks like you had a good time! Be careful unloading.
