I won the auction for a #2 Cinncinati T&C
grinder operations manual. It has exceptional pictures of setups, instructions
and parts for the accessories. I now know what all the little parts are for for my T&C
accessories. I also have a source of pictures for comparinson on ebay. I also won
an auction for some suburban brand angle plates at a CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP price. I
couldn't buy quality imports for the price
I paid for the angle plates. When things
work out on ebay it is a good day. I'll
use the angle plates in tool and die work.
I hope I didn't bid against any of you guys.

Actually you out bid me. But hey, thats the spirit that made America great! One of the bookies has promised to send me a copy on CD FOC. Very thoughtful.
If you ever get tired of looking at the paper manual I know where you can find a good home for it! I used to have an old roller chain table model. Just wanted it for nostalgia's sake.

Regards, Ken

That's ok Ken, those were the ones the guy dropped on the concrete and mangled up just after he took the photos, weren't they? That T & C Grinder is going to come in handy...

Yup, sometimes eBay is a pleasure and other times it gives you pain where there should be pleasure. Caveat Venditor (Seller beware!) is my motto.

AH OH!!! Well I know where my Reconditioning
Book is going to be mailed (Siberia?) I knew
I would eventually beat one of you guys out
of something that of you need to make that
$100,000 machine operational and I beat you
out of by $1.00. Okay I think ebay stinks
now. Ken PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! don't send my Reconditioning Book to Siberia. Thrud,
please don't give him any more ideas. Ken

anymore.
