One man's trash is ...(worth swapping for?)
« on: August 27, 2017, 09:06:00 PM »

Well it not yet junk, because it still works or in the case of the dremel, repairable
Below is attached a picture of some old equipment that I will never use (not that much different from the old equipment I am forced to use - lol)

Foredom series CC
Foredom (little one) type 505
Fairchild model two with good flexshaft
McCullough chain (saw?) grinder

3 dremels (not working, I have a pair of new brushes I will kick in if anyone wants to mess with these)
Three dremel flex shafts (one needs a new wire)
Dremel charger and battery
Craftsman imitation dremel

About the only thing that might be worth something is the old Foredom CC
The rest someone might find a use for it.
A few cabs or slabs would be nice in return because I 'll have to pay for shipping and I wonder how much of this stuff is worth the cost of shipping(?)

Would these interest you?  I'll need to put them in two posts.

I just noticed you are interested in blue.  These might be more in line.

That will work! After fifty years with a collection of thumbnail specimens only. I have a display cabinet full of slabs and I like it. Nothing wrong with slabs as specimens if there is no rush to cab them. The

John, I resized your pictures to fit on the forum page without creating the scroll bar under the pictures.  This allows the picture to be seen in its entirety.  If you resize your pictures to 600x800 before you upload them to the forum, it would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Yes sorry about that, I have been trying to find way to resize without destroying the original. It may a trial and error process
Well close... the next pix I post should be acceptable if I find a way to go from 600 to 500 pixels

Try FastStone Phone Resizer:  www.faststone.org

It's freeware and is what I use.  You can create a new folder within the resizing screen to save your resized pictures to and not save over your originals.  I just make a folder called "small" within the folder of the pictures I want to resize and save it there.  That way you have both versions in one place.

Thanks I think I solved the problem using photoshop express.

BTW the Foredom above is missing a piece that can not be replaced, so someone would have to rig it up to do else - without a Foredom flex shaft
