Jensen 95G Steam Turbine For Sale
« on: December 30, 2019, 11:15:08 am »
Iíve decided to offer up one of my Jensen 95G turbines to generate funds for other collection additions.

This 95G is like new except for a small blemish at the front of firebox. Included is the instruction sheet and the packing list from when it was purchased new from ministeam.com on the 24th of September 2011. Itís only been run twice by me and maybe once by the previous owner.

We all know these have been discontinued and no additional ones will ever be made again. It has been mentioned that one recently sold for $1250, so thatís where I will start with my asking price. Shipping will be based on the buyerís location. I would prefer US buyers only. Sorry, trying to keep it simple.

If youíve been wanting one of these, you canít go wrong with this one.
Mike

Just noticed your reduction Mike, definitely shouldnīt sit long at that price :)

A very rare chance to bag one of these, as just a 5 (6 with yours here) of them has been recorded on Ebay, since i started my database back in 2013.
In fact in that database a pre-war riveted boiler #25, would have to be considered quite common by comparison.

Very tempting Mike.

If I donít buy anything significant at Cabin Fever, I will PM you if it is still available.

High on my want list for sure. 🤠

I know the 95G was an "extra", but the new engine must be a special one  8)

If you had an extra Jensen 95G, would you give it up for a Jensen 15?😁

Very wise choice!!  8)  Is this one that we have seen before from another forum member, or a new find?

This is a new find straight from an attic in Wisconsin. It was very poorly listed on eBay, but I sure didnít get a great deal on it like youíd think. After selling the 95G, it was an even swap. The seller, after finding the 15 in his attic, called Jensen to ask what it was worth. They told him an average value was $1200!! How they came up with that, I have no idea. After a lot of negotiating, I was able to get the 15 down to $1003 out the door, so itís not quite the highest selling 15 ever, but itís close.. 😀 The seller was one tough nut to crack. He said he had other buyers that were willing to pay more, but I was the first one he talked to so he gave me first refusal. I kept checking the listing on watchcount and after more than week, it only had about 30 views and 1 watcher, so I knew nobody was finding it. He knew it too and was trying to make me nervous by talking about other buyers. I didnít want to press my luck with more haggling, so I went ahead and did the deal. Even though I had to step up and pay for it, I am thrilled to have it in my collection. Itís in fantastic condition and will light the bulb with just a finger flick of the pulley.

That's great that another one showed up! So there are at least 3 on the forum, all in very nice condition  8)
