It was a lot more money than I had originally intended to spend on my son for Christmas but once I was able to look thru it, I was glad I went for it.

I almost didn't get it.
As the auction progress and I watched the different guys bid on it, I keep increasing the amount that I figured that I would bid on it.
At the end of the auction I had put my bid at $237, that was roughly $100 more than it was setting at right then.
At about 1 minute before the end of the auction, I upped my bid to $257.
I'm glad I did bacause that last guy bid $139 so my first bid amount would not have gotten it.

I'm sure that last bidder was intending to split it up and re-sell the different sections individually.
After looking thru the manual, I bet he could have gotten $500 or $600 out of it ( possible more ).
The newest thing in it is dated 1967 and ( like I said before ) it has some Bolens items that I've never seen before.

Well I am happy its going to a good home.
After running it up to $100 it was about max for me. :D
