    Oh yeah.. The auctioneer didn't want to close it at 300 bucks. He actually stopped the auction and said: "Come on, guys.. The gauge is worth 700 bucks? No interest? Nobody?"

    lol

    Oh yeah.. We're taking a mini vacation/adventure tomorrow night/monday to pick it up.

    The auctioneer is a massive, industrial, outfit.. They livestreamed audio of the whole thing.

    And I think nobody there bidding knew what it was. But the auctioneer sure did!

    I forget which lot that passed.. But it was a really nice, giant lathe.. He stopped the auction a couple of times over it. He begged people to bid on it. He didn't want to pass it. He ended up begging for anything: "Two fifty.. Will anybody give me 250 for this? Anyone?"

    Pretty incredible. it came up after my lot.

    I think it was one of these two:

    I have never been able to find one for my machine. Your best bet is to go to the Sunnen website and read the material available on honing, and that information is extensive.

    www.vintagemachinery.org has some manuals and other information. Go to the manufacturers index and click Sunnen.

    Thanks, JB!! That's a great website.

    They don't have my model, but they have something almost the same and with the same controls.
