Shed clear out
« on: 15 September, 2019, 05:56:29 pm »
Hi all,
I'm a newbie who is wanting to find a home for all my Dads (George Ovens) remaining engine stuff / workshop stuff. It is located in Geelong.
I realise Faceplace is the place to be these days but i dont go there and am hoping there are enough left on this forum who may be able to help out, or point me in the right direction.
I'm trying to honour Dad's wishes and also maybe get a few dollars for the things of worth that are left.  Dad was a skilled restorer of stationary engines in later life (his engines earned many top honours), and he was a mechanic and farmer during his working years.

There are no engines for sale (staying with family for now) but what is left is lots of bibs and bobs and various useful items. It would all be useful for a new enthusiast starting out, or just if you want anything specific. I'll try posting a couple of photos, but I have plenty more that I can send via text if you want to PM me. 

For now I will just list as many items I can just to give an idea of what is available. Willing to sell individual items, but am more keen to move on bulk quantities or have an open day in the next fortnight so punters can come take a look.

Miscellaneous shed stuff:
1.   Acetylene bottle, size G. 1/3/full.
2.   Acetylene equipment: Torch, gauges etc.
3.   Dunlite Generator. Type BD, 40 volts. With V pulley
4.   H/duty Chain Hoist
5.   Electric motor, Crompton Parkinson. 2HP, 240V, 1420 rpm.
6.   Cast iron driven water pump. 1.5 inch outlet
7.   Home-made pipe bender, with dies and hydraulic jack.
8.   H/duty flat trolley on castors. Approx. 2ft x 4ft.
9.   ?Push/pull? lever action pump suit 200 litre drums
10.    Hand suction pump to fit 20 litre drums
11.   ?Nap sack? hand pump sprayer (gun only)
12.   Large vacuum pump (possibly suit milking plant)

Stationary engine stuff:
1.   Various cast pullies (flat and V) and wheels (includes 1 set of 4 approx 20? diam)
2.   2 timber turntable axles
3.   1 magneto and some various engine electrical gear
4.   Sets of piston rings. Some new.
5.   Carburettor (has Ford name cast into it) and various bits
6.   Used tins of engine paint
7.   Misc. lengths small diameter brass fuel piping
8.    Misc. brass and copper mesh pieces
9.   Crank handle, suit 1 ? inch shaft
10.   2 gallon brass lighting kerosene tank Approx. 20"x 4"'x 10")
11.   Lister Filter wick (new) Part # 23.2288
12.   Lots of boxes of ?allsorts? bolts, fittings etc.
13.   Special tools - e.g. ring compressors, and some home-made roughies etc.

Books:
?Gas Engine? magazines volumes 32 to 34.
The Old Machinery Mart ?93 to ?97.
The Old Machinery Magazine ?98 to 2019
Crank handle 1.5?
Automobile service manuals circa 1940
Stationary engine enthusiast books
Old tractor engine books

Thanks for looking,
Peter

Would you like me to put a link to this thread in the Australian Metalworking Forum? Some of the local metalworking crowd would probably be interested in buying  some of the engineering bits like pulleys etc.
