View Full Version : Old gauges

07-15-2009, 01:15 AM
I'm looking for old gauges for my current build, the older the better, rusted, corroded, whatever. Pressure gauges and brass would be best but if you've got something you want to part with send me a PM and we'll talk price.

I have my plastic one, but it probably isn't what you're looking for. It's in "for sale"

Goes off to rummage in the boz of brass bits.

got a magnetic relay with a guage on top if you're intrested
search the forum for cold war eltromagnetique for both photos and uses.

In the steampunk way, also got 3 brass deadbolts. They're designed to be recessed into the wood at the top and bottom of a door.
The 'switch' is a "Pull the lever Igor!" type and causes a nice brass bolt to extend from the end.

They're lovely but i can't find a place to put them.

These sound very interesting. :D I get no hits at all when I search the forums for "cold war eltromagnetique" or any combination thereof (except "cold war" and that's quite a list). Is the post in question still here? I'd love to see some pics of these things.

Oh my God, those are awesome!!! Not paying $65 for them, but I'll watch the auction, thanks very much.

better late then never. (i can only upload at work)

top and bottom one are identical, one is open, the other closed.

all three could do with a bit of a clean possibly.
