  2. Hey, I am the high bidder and have a large snipe bid! This is an extremely rare variant...( how many have YOU seen?). This one will fit on my shorter display shelf, and as a matter of fact, I am thinking of modifying my Cassin's and Lacour's to fit on this display shelf as well...This look is really attractive and rare.

  4. Harbor Freight has angle grinders on sale.

    4-1/2" Heavy Duty Angle Grinder Only $21.99 and you can get a 20% off coupon too.! Better 'n Walmart.

    Shucks, I might just start makin' my own "unusual, shortened top".

  5. How about the rare deep emerald green Willington pickle lamp complete with pre- drilled hole in the base?This makes the wiring process so much easier. My Bryant's cone would make the perfect night stand lamp, but locating one with the hole has been difficult so hopefully I can modify mine with a trip to harbor Freight...thanks for the tip! DM
