If we get the lubricator for less than our pledge commitments, shall we send the remainder to the 21 campaign?

Bill, since the part in question would be for #10, I think a transfer would be most appropriate.

I believe funds received above the purchase amount will be used to install it on #10, as well as any repairs that need to be made to it. There are a number of copper lines that will need to be run, as well as fittings. Anything extra the board can decide where it should go, 21 Campaign being a real good idea, as well as the Maintenance Fund of #10.

We'll also want one of these lubricators for #11, when that time comes.

In the event one is found, please do not bid, or advertise it is out there. Send a PM to Jason, and he can decide if it is what is wanted or not.

Upon checking EBay a few minutes ago, it appears we have a lubricator for #10.  I will let Jason make the official announcement if this is the case.
My congratulations to Jason.  I'm sending my pledge in presently to the 21 Fund.

Yes. I can confirm that we are the winners of the eBay lubricator. There will be cost for its refurbishment, plumbing, and installation. I'm not sure how to best earmark your pledge submissions - James or Jason can chime in with that.

This is a great way to fund a few off the cuff, impromptu projects.  I am glad we got the lubricator.  If the pledged funds don't cover the refurbishment, tubing fittings, etc, perhaps we can refresh the funding request.

If we send our pledge through Paypal, will they take a cut?
