Please come back a few times over the next 2 months as I add the rest of the cool stuff. What is not sold will be sold for scrap so make sure you get your offers in early. Remember to SHARE the post with the big rose logo on the Calrose Typesetters page so I know you are a serious buyer and to help spread the word (there is plenty for everyone).

This will be a list of all the stuff I have going up for sale. I will start the list with the letterpress stuff and then all the other stuff that needs clearing out. I will edit this list as my definitive list as I add more items, I hope to remove items shortly after they sell. At some point a lot of items will be converted to scrap metal so if you like something make an offer (see guidelines below). Bulk buyers and Letterpress/Electronics enthusiasts may receive discounts if they are polite.

The items will have prices in South African Rand (exchange rate close to ZAR10.50 ~ US$1.00).
Keep checking back, prices will be reduced if sales are slow, don’t miss that bargain.

Some items will have two prices, the first is the minimum amount you can offer without shame, you may offer less but may be ignored altogether, if I have not had better offers and I feel it is time to let something go I will contact you to say your offer has been accepted, make sure I have your correct contact details. The larger price will be the Buy-it-Now price and you can walk away with your new toy right away. Pretty much all the items are second hand or NOS (new old stock) so there can be no returns or refunds. Some of the items will link to my SirPlus webshop listings with longer descriptions or Flickr photos if these exist.

Always check that the item is still in stock (I may not have had a chance to update the list always) and where it is located, before you make payment. Your bank deposit payment secures the item for you, if collecting in person by appointment you may also bring cash (first come first served). Most items will be either in Midrand (M), Benoni (B), Doornfontein (D) or Parkview (P) as marked but can sometimes be moved to one of the other locations..

 

There are a few places where some of the items have photos posted like my Idyllic Press Flickr page.

There is more discussion on the Calrose Typesetters Facebook page. Additional discounts for those that share posts on the FaceBook page.

There are details on some items listed on the SirPlus web shop that may have brought you here.

If you see the same thing at different prices you can motivate for the cheapest price if you are polite.

R6000 R10000 Letterpress portal As I will be far away I am looking for a buyer for the Letterpress SA (letterpress.co.za) web portal. While it has been interesting to keep my ideas in order it has not been the success I hoped in gaining traction amongst enthusiasts in South Africa, perhaps I am not gregarious enough and it needs a socialite to get it flying. I hope it can still succeed one day. The sale will include the domain name, the WordPress blog site and the FaceBook page and what goodwill I have been able to generate. (B)

R90000 Dog tag business I am undecided if I should take my mailorder business along with me when I leave. It is a very low impact online mailorder business that I do part time. It is very simple in operation, I buy blank ID tags, take orders, personalise the tags with a 60 years old debossing machine and then post the tags to customers. Profit about 60k per year with zero marketing for 12 hours per month of work. Maximum profit potential of the machine is way over R60k per MONTH with large customer base. Comes with tag stock that could be sold for over R120k. Includes machine, stock, domain name(s), web store and basic training if desired. The debossing machine is manualy operated and does not require electricity so can be setup in a container site but the whole operation is compact including the debosser a cupboard for stock and an internet PC with printer for online orders. (B)

Electromechanical

R500000 Cincinatti laser cutter My friend has the following for immediate sale. A Cincinnati Inc CL-707 industrial cutting laser for metal, one of 5 units currently in regular service but underutilised and in the way of factory upgrade so surplus to requirements. The unit was made in 1996 and had R600k of work done on it not too long ago. Must be inspected and tested by buyer on site and decommissioned and collected from southern Johannesburg at buyers cost immediately. One week of the machine operators time will be made available after you have commissioned it to train your operator (buyer pays travel and subsistence costs in SA). Ideal as a second laser to provide a back up. Bed size about 1500 x 3000 mm, pictures to follow. The following details to be confirmed but it should have power in the 2 to 5kW range, linear motors for the X and Y axis and a double pallet system with an older controller. Price negotiable for a quick sale. (J)

R SOLD Laser Engraver Shell No-name CO2 laser engraver with Chinese Moshi controller and USB dongle for software, NO TUBE, good rebuild project. 30x200mm work area, spring loaded holding clamp and dodgy Z table lift. (M)

PSU also has a 5V and 24V DC outputs for controller. This is for a PAIR of spare power supplies same as in the Chinese lasers being sold above. (M)

R SOLD Laser Extractor A high power multi-stage centrifugal extractor. 3/4hp motor. Motor drives a dry vane pump that can be used for air-assist. Pulled from a mainframe tape streamer years ago, downside is that it is pretty noisy. (B)

R SOLD 80W Reci CO2 laser tubes and HV PSU Pair of Reci 80/90W glass laser tubes and one PSU. True condition is unknown but one looks like new and was taken out of service in less than a year and most of that was sitting idle I’m told. The PSU was also swapped but perhaps this one is also in perfect condition. The other tube looks well used but both tubes still lase and can be demonstrated. Priced for just one tube or PSU. (M)

R600 5-Phase stepper driver modules SANYO DENKI, Pentasyn PMM-BD-5701 units All three units. (B)

R200 Dallas Secure Microcontroller A Dallas DS2250T 32-16 secure microcontroller module (2 off) http://www.flickr.com/photos/idyllicpress/10867575696/ (B)

Needs some TLC I expect but a fun restoration project. A selection of records is also available. Includes a NOS stereo flip cartridge with LP and regular needles that must be fitted. There may be a second complete turn table mechanism included if it can be located (they seem identical). (B)

R100 Vintage Geha plate burner GEHA Electronics plate burner. This is a vintage drum type analogue plate burner of some sort. From the middle 1970′s and using valve electronics. (M)

R100 GPO Morse key This is a montage of the back and front of an old GPO Morse key. The condition is bad enough that it is not easy to restore it to working condition, ornamental value only (M)

R300 Vintage Pong games A pair of similar (perhaps internally identical) TV games. Cosmetically ok, function not known, one did not work the one time it was tried and not been tested since. Also another older unit, condition unknown. (MB)

R800 Drafting machine rails The robust extruded aluminium rails and carriages with plastic idler wheels (with bearings and eccentric adjustments) from a pair of identical parallel beam drafting machines. Ideal for making a 2.5D CNC wood router. There are two long and two shorter rails, picture a engineers drafting table, can measure if interest shown. (B)

R1000 Roland Plotters, lot Three A3 DXY plotters. (model numbers something like 880, 1100, 1300) Two have a double ended stepper motors on X axis.

Similar to the following http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKmSrJG8Tj4 and the following cool project http://www.synthfool.com/laser/ (B)

R500 LIDAR Gun Laser Technologies LTI 20/20 Marksman laser speed and distance sensors, ex traffic cameras. Price is per each. Condition unknown, no way to test required some serial commands to request reading, no handles. About 6 in stock. They might make interesting line of sight data links with a bit of work or could be used to do lidar scanning of properties with a bit of work, at least the cases look very smart. Like the ones in the following link but no handles (they were attached to camera platforms) http://www.quattro123.com/LTIMARKSMANbeam.htm (B)

R400 AC Millivoltmeter (Philips) AC millivoltmeter, Large Analogue scale (B)

R200 Geiger Counter Vic Tic Geiger counter, Geiger tube collapsed, very early transistorised circuitry (uses gas filled voltage regulator tube) ()

R100 Variacs, 2 to fix Set of two variacs for repair, the correct gauge copper wire and patience, I had a 110V small unit that I will include if I find it. (B)

R800 R1000 Variac 7A Variable Autotransformer, open frame, works perfectly 7A. A big brute for testing many types of machines (especially vintage valve gear), just remember an autotransformer does not isolate. Add a big step down transformer and have an isolated variable unregulated AC/DC low voltage power supply (B)

R250 220-36V transformer Estimated at 250VA perhaps more and well suited to hookup to the Variac listed above (B)

R400 100A 5V PSU HP minicomputer PSU. Ideal power supply for water electrolysis to make balloon Hydrogen or Brown’s gas (HHO) (B)

R800 R1200 Weston Cell A vintage Weston wet chemistry EMF (voltage) reference cell. These were used as the global standard for calibrating all voltage references including modern high tech digital voltmeters until 1990. This is one I purchased from Wits University in the 1990′s when they were cleaning out a few laboratories. It has no case and would have been fitted into a test bench of a small wood box. (B)

R300 R500 Tek 465 Scope The industry standard 100MHz dual trace scope used by thousands. It has issues so will need to go to a technically aware home. Triggering was erratic, only worked on delayed time base, some of the attenuator settings were badly out of calibration on one input, fan had a vibration, I suspect the hub is split. Has been sitting idle for 10 years as I have another scope. Has travel cover and cord pouch, no probes, sorry. (B)

R200 Tek 214 Scope An analogue storage Scope. For repair or spares. Dual channel battery operated (NiCad) Lovely to work with but low audio bandwidth only. (B)

R300 Astatic Desk microphone A Beautiful vintage crystal microphone (It looks like a JT-30 type from the 1940-69 but not sure). Set it up for transcribing audio books, dubbing of videos or hook it to a HAM radio to look professional. Or use it as a steam Punk prop for a party. Comes with cable, stand, instructions sheet and padded shipping envelope in original box (some scribbles on box). Untested and vulnerable to ANY DC on the connection so high impedance transformer coupling would be the safest way to hook it up if you want it to last. It came from the estate of someone who used to make 16mm films (his film projector is also for sale). (B)

R20 Clock Standard kitchen clock (B)

R1000 Everay induction treatment machine This was a type of machine that was used a while back to treat some conditions. Comes in a wood box with old Bakelite knobs and stuff. It has a direct mains induction coil that drives a High voltage step up transformer in the handle to give high voltages at high frequencies. If all works well the output power is sort of like what you would get in a modern day Plasma globe. It includes two neon filled probes that glow pretty when you apply them to your arm and a bare metal probe (that I was not brave enough to test). I received it with a burnt out handle transformer and a decade later came across a new, very similar, handle that I wired up and it worked. Not fully isolated so sold as a display item but could be demonstrated at your Goth or Halloween party if you have paramedics amongst the guests :-) I also have an even newer handle with internal electronic induction circuit made in Russia that should accept the same probes that I will include with this unit, I have not tested it but it looks pretty well looked after. (B)

R500 NLS multimeter Pair of working vintage Multimeters Model LM-35A. LED display, 3xAA battery operation. Made by Non Linear Systems (B)

R300 Embedded controller case Robust aluminium table top computer controller case. Has a swivel top monitor enclosure and a 19inch 3U high base unit. Unused but needs a new coat of paint. Ideal for CNC router-plasma cutter control box. (B)

R600 Variable PSU HP 6200B 40V 1.5A Variable linear bench powersupply. Reliable workhorse, current set/limit, analog readout. (B)

R250 Garmin GPS25 OEM GPS receiver board. Kind of old but NOS. I have 2 unused and perhaps can find one or two more test units. (M)

R100 Vintage Hearing aids A pair of vintage heading aids. One a Philips has transistors (perhaps OC71 style glass ones, there are a couple of loose ones in the box and I can no longer recall why) This init has a drive element for an ear piece and what looks like a detached microphone but not sure. The other one a STC (likely made in SA) operates on 3 thermionic valves and has a microphone on the front of the case, it has no earpiece but the wire is connected to crystal terminals inside, it can be selected to work with a dynamic driver as well. There is a copy of the first page of a 1957 Practical Wireless magazine article on how to hack this type of hearing aid into a radio, they were common on the surplus market at that time. It uses two DF70 tubes and one DL71 tube and needs two dry cell batteries to work, a 3V for the filaments (there is a sample of this one) and a 22.5V for the HV, these are connected to the end of a wire for placement into a convenient pocket. (M)

R100 GSM alarms A pair of GSM assisted alarms. One is a Alarm panel phone home device that has a battery charger and stuff in a steel box. The other is a GSM alarm camera. Both have standard M2M GSM phone modules, ideal for experimenting with GSM controls. (M)

R3000 Desk Loom This is a clone/prototype of a Finnish Varpapuu (Silja or Nordia not sure which) dektop loom about 60cm wide.

When news got to the factory in Finland the improvements were incorporated into the new generation of loom. Desk top looms of this class are used at the Waldorf school in the handcraft classes.

It was rescued from a antique dealer who was abot to turn it into a kitchen cupboard/counter unit. It has 8 treadles and was likely intended to have 4 shafts but these are missing. The beater needs some surgery and the reed is badly broken in two so it is only suitable for testing on a narrow warp. Mosly assembled with mortice joints and wedges. Looks like a locally made reproduction. Comes from East London many years ago and been stored inside and outside. Ignore the pale wood of the loom behind it in the pictures. http://www.flickr.com/photos/idyllicpress/6683115893/ (B)

The loom has never been used and when we recived it, it was missing some of the parts for the heddle frames (shafts) but these are not very complex for a woodworker to make. The width of the loom requires 3 pairs of treadles but they are in parallel so there is only a single shed from the two shafts. The beater is usually hooked up with a bungie cord or spring. The vintage wood in front is from anouther loom. Just look at the pale wood in the photo. Marylins looms and work in progress, she has 2 and makes tapestries http://www.tapestry.co.nz/blog/images/new_studio_2.jpg http://www.tapestry.co.nz/blog/images/Dressing_the_Loom.jpg http://www.tapestry.co.nz/blog/images/Cityscape.jpg (B)
