This lot arrived today...
« on: September 29, 2020, 03:55:56 pm »
Don’t think I did too bad on a cast Jensen #15 for $100 and a couple freebies...

Never owned a D.K. but have always kinda wanted one. Should be an easy restoration as half the paint is already falling off  :D  Haven’t checked the heater yet and don’t have any high hopes of it working...

Most of the corrosion looks to be from how they were stored, so I think the Mamod boiler will polish up. Will probably clean it off and throw it on the shelf for the kids to play with someday. Would be neat powering an erector set project since the base is done for.

I think you did real well ,& it looks like it all arrived intact , a hard thing to accomplish for some sellers.

Thanks guys, I was kind of right about the heater not working in the D.K. ... while checking it out, I found there is no heater  :D

Very nicely bought, Nick!


Yes sir, that cast iron Jensen generator is in great shape and worth more than your cost including the shipping.

Whoa Nick ..... Nice SCORE!

You paid about what the Mamod SE-3 would normally fetch .... a truly great engine itself, in case you don't know, so you could honestly say you got the DK and the Jensen 15 for free!!!   ;c)

I just saw this Nick.

A great score.

My DK was adapted by the previous owner to run on air.

Thanks Charlie, I really like the DK and probably would have bid on others in the past had I known how nice they were.
