The county had an on line auction last week. They recently upgraded all the Hurst "Jaws". They had 13 up for auction and I scored two complete units. I picked them up today. What great stuff. The uses are endless.

I tried one out and the jaws cut an 1 1/4" black iron pipe like butter.

I'm going to sell most of it. But, I envision a tubing bender and hydraulic press. My mind is whirring with ideas.

Kenny, what would you innovate?

I tried cheating by looking on the auctioneer's website, but they don't have prices listed. Ouch on the 10% buyers markup, though.

Come on, Scott. What the heck is 10% when you're having fun. Besides it's cheaper than live auctions that charge 13% and 15% percent. The bottom line is all that counts. :thumbs:
