Via the Wellington Thursday Night Curry group I became aware of a goodly supply of workshop equipment likely to be of interest to those with a more practical hands/on bent, currently for sale.
The listings can be viewed on TradeMe. The notice I received included the following:
A friend who is a brilliant inventor and engineer is in his 80s and close to the end of his time with us.
I am helping him with disposing of his workshops on Trademe. I have added 36 auctions and have another dozen to add - all $1 reserve.
He has fully a fully kitted out electronics lab, metal shop, welding apparatus, injection molding rig, wood shop, and more.
For the true electronics geeks there are vintage tube testers, sweep generators, resistance analyzers, HF gear, test oscillators, etc.
Among the more wild stuff is a 5V AC 100 Amp test supply and a Variac variable autotransformer I have yet to list.
If any of you are involved in Maker communities or know of any other way to promote these auctions I'd much appreciate the help.
