  • scroller garage sale

    Wife called me this afternoon...she was at a garage sale, a scroll crafter died and his family is selling everything. I bought some sort of strange drill press, it is very small and only has about a 3/4 down travel. it has a 3/8 chuck with what looks like a pin installed in it for drilling a super tiny hole i guess...I paid $20 for it. But anyhow, here is the point I'm getting at

    He maid whirly gigs and craft clocks. There was a box with clock faces, but not the motors or fingers...huge assortment I'm guessing 50 or more of these faces for only $10
    He also has boxes and boxes of patterns, probably clocks, gigs and maybe some fretwork...selling the boxes for $2 each I'm pretty sure that was the price. You get what you get. There are also boxes and boxes of half finished clocks and whirly yard gigs like a dollar each..if anyone seriously interested, i can go back tommorrow and salvage something for you...needs to be saturday..i work sundays.

    Hi Jeff, I don't know about the rest, but the clock faces are priceless. they don't always come with the diel arms.or the clock mecanisoms. only the faces. i know i paid $8.00 just for one. but it was wood. and came from germany. but they are not cheep. look in your cataloges. like wildwooddesings. good find.

      I don't want any of this stuff, they looked like plastic, and all different kinds, designs, styles, pictures on them and what not. He also has the mechanisms for 15 cents each, battery operated, but no hands/clock fingers? i dont' know what u call them, no big or little hands? I'm just offering to get the box and ship it out to whoever, no charge but the cost of the goods and the shipping which shouldn't be much because they are not that heavy. This guy and his wife must have scrolled their way to every festival on the planet. He has dozens of pizza boxes full of complete or partially complete clocks, and boxes of painted whirly gigs and lawn ornaments. I'm just into the intarsia myself. I like the drill press i bought, but don't know exactly what good it is, it sure is tiny. I'll have to take a picture of it and post it in the tool section for some feedback.

          clock mechanisms

          I will have my wife pick up the mechanisms in the morning...they are battery operated. I am not sure if the clock faces are left..
          They are closed now, but will go there first thing.
          I will let you know of the cost.

            Hi Jeff,

            If not too late, I'd be interested in a couple boxes of patterns. I can send a check or PAYPAL you, just shoot me a PM. Sounds like just the thing for my 73 Y.O. scrolling dad......... If I'm too late, THANKS anyway for offering to help out fellow scrollers!

                I'm in eaton rapids michigan... between lansing and jackson. There is alot of patterns, but it's hard to tell which are which. majority of them are whirly gigs and lawn ornaments. there is some toy patterns and some fretwork in there somewhere. He has a shelf with all kinds of books for 50 cents each, fretwork, segmentation, intarsia, you name it, and they have patterns in them. as far as wood, he has a few pieces of pine, pretty much everything was pine that he made. Tons of paint and brushes too..big cans, small jars, two scroll saws, a spindle sander, a portable planer, and there will be new stuff today, because they haven't even gotten into the items in a few rooms of the house. He died and his family is trying to deal with the incredible mass of stuff. I'd say it's worth the drive if you are within a few hours. You can call me...517-663-7179 for any directions.

                        I'd like to see a pic. of the little drill press. If it's a Proxxon miniature press it's an expensive little piece of machinery. I have one with a miniature milling bed attached. If that's what it is you got a really GREAT deal!!!
                        If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                            This garage sale is over, I can't go back to it now
                            perhaps a moderator can delete this thread now ?
