OK auction watch

Bidding started at 1400.00 on this Pexto Funnel Former, M-1158 of the Pratt & Whitney (stamped 1909)

- it'll be interesting to see the end of the auction.

I would like to just play with it for a couple hrs to see what this can do. Looks like it is mostly for small cones.

OK... I found bead roller heaven!
http://<b><a href="http://www.mittle...s.com/</a></b> makes 'em with throats from 14" up to a whopping 42".
They're pretty in two ways...
To look at and to buy.
Check it out... Anybody already have one of these?
They've got a multitude of die sets as well... although they're more geared to race car building.

Bud,
I found them through your site, but in an indirect sorta way... Kinda like the 3rd cousin, twice removed thing. (LOL)
I clicked on a link from here and wound up on a page that was nothing but different links of "How To" stuff....
Wound up on the metalshapers.com site, sat in on a Saturday night chat, mentioned about pictures of beaders they were using that looked more contempoary and a friendly guy named Roger, using the handle of Grumpy Old Man, gave me the link, but warned me to take wads of cash.
Oh... He also caught me drooling over their English wheel set ups. (LOL)
