I will give you $50. It’s an odd piece of equipment that only a few can use. Depends on dies and any other parts. It’s only worth what someone will give on a given day, so I’m saying$100-500 as a possible amount, but if you got all the right bits, $1000-1500 for a big package. You have to be way more specific. #### BJC ##### Well-Known Member HBA Supporter I will give you$50
Thanks, Tom. Just what I need, a bidding war.

For the right buyer, it’s worth spending the money. Ebay would be the best bet to try and get best price, unless you knew a shop that was in your area. Most don’t want to put the liability on the line today.

Ok, thanks all!!

I will dig it out and take some photos for you all. It would be interesting to see how old it is too, you folks will have an idea once you see it!!

What did I say that shouldn’t be listened to?

Yowza! How fast does this slap the dies together? And even more astounding: how much air flow does it take? [Alternatively - do you have a pointer to a tech description?]

They had them when I worked at TWA. They required at least a 3/8" air hose to work, anything smaller and it would just work harden the fitting. Interesting to watch the guys use them, scary. When American took over they were scrapped out.

EAA 292 has one of these beasts, watched it doing ends for one of the DH-2s
