Hello,

There is a lubricator on eBay we'd like to get for No 10.  We are seeking pledges to cover its cost, up to $1000. We have a bid in now at $500- the bidding ends next Friday, June 30, 2017.

This is hoped to be a replay of a lube system we put on 9.  It's an improved lubrication system for some remote parts of the running gear.  Normally these areas are oiled by hand, with great difficulty.  Because of that, they are often poorly oiled (or not at all), and when they do get oil, the tip of the oil can introduces contaminates to the bearing area.  Everyone loves the improvement on 9 (compared to the old way on 10 before removal from service), and have been asking the shop to do the same on 10.

I'll pledge $100.

Please let us know if you can help!

Thanks,
Jason

I haven't seen the lubricator up for auction but I understand it is very similar to the lubricator installed in no. 9.

I believe I found what Jason is referring to on Ebay.  It might be a good idea for Jason/others to PM those interested folks so that we don't end up bidding against each other.

Almost forgot, we should move this item to the member's only side of the house.

If you find the item, please don't bid on it. As of now, Jason has the one and only bid on it. And because it was miscatogorized by the seller, it is possible that we may get this for a steal.

I am keeping this topic open to the public - since we do have many friends and supporters who read this forum, yet for whatever reason are not museum members. I invite those folks to pledge something toward this (either publically, and/or via a private message to Jason.) I will pledge to purchase a one-year membership to the museum for any non-member who pledges $50 or more toward this purchase.

Thanks, Ed.

We did get an offline pledge for $300.

That brings us to $850- WOW!  That may be enough; we'll see what the auction brings.  In the mean time maybe we can get our pledges up to the full $1K.

Yay for us!
