Laughable Ebay page
« on: September 13, 2015, 05:16:14 PM »
I still keep an eye out on Ebay  for a couple of specific fire alarm boxes I need, I noticed this Gamewell Excelsior model for sale and true to form the description is priceless as always, here's a screen shot merge of the back of the cast iron shell and the guy's description where he describes this as "very good" it's in "very good" condition EXCEPT for the fact it has a huge hole broken out of the bottom!! if it has a huge hole in it it's NOT in "very good" condition it's in "poor" condition.
This kind of damage can't effectively be repaired, antique cast-iron like this is extremely difficult to do any kind of welding on, that leaves only the poor substitute of brazing a patch in or bondo, either of which will be obvious repairs and devaluate the box.


Sculptures are drawings you fall over in the dark
