SALE DAY UPDATE: ITEMS H90 AND UP MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE WHEN THE SALE OPENS, BUT THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE TOMORROW. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. -JOHN
 
Warning! Be patient with this post–there are almost 100 images below.

 

We are gutting our parts department to make room for our new video studio–which we have been working on for the past 18 months without much progress because of space constraints. The vast majority of the inventory below is custom designed and not available anywhere else.

 

How big is this sale? If everything pictured sold (it won’t) we would take a loss of over $100,000. Everything you see below is “as is”–we made zero attempt to clean or polish what you see. Most were photographed with a rule as a reference so you get an idea of the size. When appropriate, we have included the thread sizes. Some of this stuff we have large quantities, others, not so much. The sale will go live later this week and the exact date will be announced via email. All is first come, first served. We will leave what you don’t snap up at our fulfillment center for a couple of weeks and then it will all be scrapped. So, happy hunting to all the MacGyver fans amongst the DSN!

 

Lastly, this is only the hardware and misc. stuff.

 

The finished goods sale will be posted later today. If you see something here that we missed let us know and we will update the image.

 

-John

 

PS: We did our best to make this accurate–so we are not guilt of nothin’! Also, we have been told that our shopping cart updates quantities in “realtime” but this is the first big test–so again, no guarantees that your order(s) will be filled 100%. But we are kind of confident…sorta.

  1. Ooh, got pretty excited at a bunch of parts.

    I’ll ask for everyone: what will shipping be on our loot?

    Thanks,
    Rutager

  2. Knobs! I need knobs!!!!!

    Okay – that didn’t sound quite right…

    — Peter

  3. John,

    Thanks for the shipping information; so based on size and weight, now, how much to hire a semi from Portland to St. Paul?

    -Rutager

  4. Rutager,

    You shouldn’t worry about shipping to the east coast, as it’s less expensive to ship to Los Angeles!
    And remember I have plenty of those Stanley Parts bins downstairs that need filling!
    cheers, roger

  5. Hi Roger,

    Yes, you need more small parts to fill all of your storage containers; I just counted my Plano stock and I have five, so I should be good, well unless I want to really separate everything by type, then I may have to go shopping!

    Best,
    Rutager

  6. If anyone cares, I totaled up what it would cost if you got one batch of everything on this list: $689.50- not to shabby for this much stuff!
