Re: Kiss of Death

HATS OFF.jpg Hats off to the owner of the "Rubber Necker" I have received a a few e-mails regarding the sale priee at auction which was $ 34,000. I am sure that it would have sold closer to the $100,000 estimate had it not been the full disclosure in the auction catalogue. ROGER

blocks lung tester.jpg This antique Lung Tester was made by Mills circa 1905. They did not last very long due to health reasons. They are extremely rare and the one pictured could have been mine after a clever restorer got hold of my basket of original parts. I had paid $25 for this pile of junk, s...
