The things I buy at auction, why I buy them, and how much I pay!

Recommended Posts

I'm not going to go back in time and list everything I've bought but I'm going to keep track of what I buy why I bought it and how much I paid for it so you guys can get some insight into my thought process and how I "stumble" across these deals. 

I'm going to kick this off with a 2 hp electric motor that will run on 110 for my power hammer because the wimpy 3/4 hp is taking a crap.

Century AC Electric motor, model K204

The only one I found was on amazon for $159 but I couldn't share a link to it. 

Won for: $100

 Next I'm kinda excited about. It's a central vacuum system  and if it's worth it I'm going to pick up a couple more because there on this auction every week and there brand new.

What auction sites do you use. Everyone that I have ever looked at has so much stuff I don't even no where to start. And it always like construction (big) equipment or Boats or crazy stuff that I have no use for

There is 3 main sites that I use. The first is based in Fremont MICHIGAN (where Gerber baby food is made) called jnjonlineauction.com. The second is my go to site for industrial type equipment the prey on businesses that are shutting down. Its called orbitbid.com. The third and most recent add on to the list which come to find out is affiliated with orbitbid.com and I made another account and screwed things up a bit.....the main location I look at is in Grand Rapids and they have another location in Detroit area but it's too far of a drive and I'm not a fan of Detroit but it's called repocast.com.

Here is 2 more items I got within the last few weeks I think is worth showing off. 

A nice wood stove that has a broken hinge pin. I have to try to drill out the old pin or just cut the old piece off and re-weld on another piece that is already pre drilled. I think I'm going to go for the cut and weld method.

Won for: $16

Here is a blower but it doesn't run. After taking a quick look the wiring could use some doctoring so we will see if it will run.

Won for: $28

I'm glad you are due north of me.  Otherwise all that iron you drag home would start to mess up my compass bearing!  :D
