Scott Rouze engines recycled
« on: December 31, 2021, 05:24:26 pm »
Looks like some of Scott's engines are now being sold again on Ebay; I recognize this one because the auction mixed up the correct stack with one from a Carette engine; this Doll has the Carette stack: https://www.ebay.com/itm/284588934818?hash=item4242d286a2:g:q34AAOSwIchhyb-y

Brent, I think I was on the phone with you when the hammer came down on this one. I missed a higher bid by what must have been a millisecond.

Don't know either of these sellers but they buy regularly at these auctions. Sorry you missed that one Gil.

I thought maybe they were close to the auction house , but Denver Pa to Brewster Ma. is a 5.47 hr drive.

^^^By the way, look at the shipping prices from ebay seller Walnutts on the 2 above… auctions ended a couple mins apart but nearly a $50 difference in shipping!

You have to really get a bargain on these engines if you plan to resell them , by the time you have them shipped to you (without damage) ,pay the shipping fees , the buyers premium... Ect. Usually there's not much meat left on the bone after everyone else gets their share.

I have also bought a number of engines from them with no issues. An A++++ eBay seller.  And I am happy for them to make a profit off of auction buys.  So much less hassles than trying to deal with the Auction Houses (unless you are close enough to pick up).
