Apple ProTower (4-core) (MacPro1,1)
2 x 3.0GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon :: Works great - only posted, since I'd like to get an even faster 6-processor version. Bought it Nov, 2012 - (12GB) to run Aperture and Photoshop. Stock NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics card. Runs great, a fair bit zippier than my old 4-core tower. Has dual optical bays - which is a nice feature (that I can't live w/out now), and space for 4 x SATA (3Gb/s) internal drives, currently I've got two 500GB (one boot, one un-used), and a 1.5TB drive, going to use two 120GB SSD drives inside when I get a proper sled (one as boot, one for daily work data) :: FW800 ports on the front and back, as well as FW400 ports front and back too. (pictures to be updated soon - these are from an 8-core (2008 version)

~~ price - 1,200.00 for the tower and the 12GB and 500GB boot drive

Apple G5 tower - case carcass
A bare G5 tower - just the case, pretty much nothing more than that, includes the door and air baffle - will convert it into a G3 (add G3 parts inside of it) at some point just for the hell of it - no real point to the project, other than the case is über-cool, and a shame to waste it...

This is the follow up to SONY's first DVD player the DVP-S7000. It features a very robust transport with two discrete laser pickups. One is optimized for reading CD's and the second for DVD's. The disk tray is concealed behind a very cool motorized sliding panel that houses rudimentary transport controls and the VFD display. As a CD player it is a very solid unit, it produces a detailed and tonally balanced sound. The chassis is copper plated throughout. All output RCA jacks are gold plated, as well as the 1/4" headphone jack (with volume control). It has two sets of gold plated analog audio outputs, as well as a coaxial and optical digital outputs. It readily plays red book CDs, video CDs, it will also pass DTS encoded CD audio to an external DTS decoder (via digital out). People have used it as a CD transport feeding a DAC. One feature I particularly enjoy is the resume feature. Pressing stop during playback allows to resume at a later time even if the deck has been turned off (an automatic bookmark). Video section is fully functional and allows full access to configuration / diagnostic menu (ie. display dimming) using the remote control  Sony dvp-s7700 cd / dvd player. Aluminum front panel, bmc honey comb base / tray, high - carbon isolator feet, multiple playback speed available in forwards & reverse, dts dolby pro - logic, dolby digital (ac-3), component video out x 1, s-video out x 2, digital out (optical) connector, s-link connector, audio / video line out x 2, weight 15 lb 7 oz.

Apple eMac G4/900MHz (Tray Loading - White) - 1GB RAM

Works fine (except does seem to have a sleeping issue [does not wake from sleep], and will only warm-boot which I have not been able to resolve, so I cannot automate it to start + shut-down for torrenting) - no keyboard or mouse - monitor was a bit fuzzy before replacing the fan, seems much clearer now (when on high speed - added a variable knob to tune it down to quiet), missing the clear plexi stand - upgraded the stock 40GB drive to a 250GB one (split into a 45GB boot partition and a 187GB data section) - nice for torrenting - and it's got the combo mech (CD-RW/DVD-ROM and will play movie DVDs) - not positive [at the moment] what the model # is - as I don't see "900MHz" on everymac - perhaps it was under or over clocked, or there were a few flavors, or this is a Canadian version, as it has an NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics card in it (pushes 1280x960), and only has USB 1.1 ports, but FireWire as well :: currently has the latest Leopard version OS 10.5.8 on it. Upgraded the OS - Aug 31, 2009 :: PC133 SD-RAM :: PowerMac4,4 :: can push an external monitor and use dual displays apparently (I don't have a monitor adapter, nor have I done the free s/w mod that is available online - Screen Spanning Doctor) :: Has Firewire ports, so transfering data is nice to another system (with Target Firewire), and this was probably the last of this line to allow booting os9 :: External Specs :: case is scratched up a bit :: I did a crazy Frankenstein mod on it, to reduce the fan noise (which is so much nicer now), and added two metal handles to the sides to make it easier to move :: will post some pictures posted March 14th., 2011

Williams (1982) Sinistar project (joystick, converted control panel, bezel glass art and marquee)
Decided to bail on the stock Sinistar project - I'll keep the cabinet, as it now runs a bunch of my favorite Williams games : Robotron, Defender, Stargate and Joust. I've got all the parts except for the CPU board and CPO artwork, althought I must have the original ROM board around here somewhere :: For sale as a whole set, or in parts : working 49-way WICO leaf joystick (fresh leafs), marquee, glass bezel art (some paint was removed because of a cabinet conversion, but it still looks very good) are up for sale..., take it off my hands before I come to my senses. I got the joystick off of eBay, which was missing the ball head, so I fabricated a replacement out of wood (bought a pre-made sphere at a craft shop), and bought a set screw - feels nice - pictures up when I can get to it (which really means, ask me otherwise hell might freeze over before that happens). Most of these pieces are typically rare, expensive and hard to find. A few people are fabricating nice reproduction handles, probably have a thread or link saved out if you need it.

~~ price = 200.00 ... as is ... for the Sinistar part set... will have to check what I paid for them - ask or trade for other game manuals, Jamma boards, dead cabinets, marquee art, control panels...

Escape From Mars (Lunar Rescue bootleg)
Very rare old coin-op game from the late 70s (so rare, I've only found one reference to it online) - pretty fun - kind of a cross between Lunar Lander, Asteroids and Space Invaders all rolled into one. The game uses a B&W monitor with colored strip overlays [common for games of that era, like Space Invaders, etc.] Cabinet is an upright style with a two-way leaf joystick and one leaf button for game controls, plus two small Bakelite buttons for 1/2 player selection. Has a coin slot, but the mechanism was removed. Currently set with a free play button to credit the board. This game was rented out to a movie crew for a film shoot awhile back (Brokeback Mountain), so I guess that makes it famous... Last time I'd seen one was in the late 70s up in Edmonton, AB in an arcade when I was a kid. // doing some research I stumbled on what looks like a color version of this game made by Taito called Lunar Rescue. Retouched the cabinet :: Aug, 2007, looks nice :: images, what it looked like when I bought it (pre-restored)

~~ price = sold - Oct, 2009

Space Invaders (upright cabinet) | Bally/Midway, 1978
Fairly rare vintage coin-op game from 1978 - see more pictures and description posted here. This is a game that you have just got to see this in person - backlit and reflected (semi-silvered mirror) display - very trippy! - pictures show the stock condition, a brand new (New Old Stock) Control Panel metal overlay (not the cheap stickers) was installed, and the Braze upgrade kit has been added as well. Lots of fun!

~~ price = w/upgrade kit (and CPO) $1,650.00

Street Fighter II
Working JAMMA board and marquee - taken out of a working cabinet (the monitor was pulled), but I hooked it up in my Tetris Jamma cabinet recently [31.01.06] and had a few games (still played with only one button), where the SFII has six. Pictures available of the board, and game screens. Will post more [time permitting] - or just ask [that will get it done!]

~~ price = sold - Jan, 2010

Disney Tetris (Japanese version) Jamma PCB [Magical Tetris Challenge Featuring Mickey]
Brand new JAMMA board, manual and cabinet graphics - only pulled out of the packaging to test it in my regular Atari Tetris Jamma cabinet [Feb, 2006] and had a few games (still played with only one button), where the Disney version has two. Pictures available of the board, and game screens. Will post some [time permitting] - or just ask [that will get it done!]. The graphics are very beautiful and there is animation everywhere (of course, it's from Disney what else would you expect? - click on the Disney link to see the KLOV page on it) - if I could read Japanese maybe it would be more fun! Actually, there is so much sound and animation, I felt like I was stoned - playing my regular original Atari version (which I like better for some reason) right after felt like going back to the 50s or something. You can pick two different games, and pick from four different Disney characters to play with/against.

~~ price = 85.00 obo / LNIB or trade for other Jamma boards, dead cabinets, marquee art, control panels...

Pac-man manual - Midway's Pac-Man parts and Operating Manual
New quality reprint. Bought this off a dealer in the US in late 2005, so that I could work on my Pac-man, and subsequently I've obtained a nice original version, so I don't need this anymore. I just double checked it with my original tonight [April 9th., 2006], and indeed, the reprint version could actually be considered superior - they did a nice job in tweaking the contrast and detail of the murky original printed version. Have no fear! Wouldn't have believed it, without seeing it with my own anal eyes folks! / This is the December, 1980 version - has a colorized cover where the real original is B&W.

Manfrotto Auto Dolly #057 (Bogen 3056)
A three legged dolly to hold a Manfrotto (Bogen) tripod, and allow you to move the whole unit in a studio setting [the wheels don't have much clearance, so it can't be used outdoors] 2.85Kg. - works quite nice on polished concrete.

the wheels free off the ground, and the weight of the dolly and tripod rest on separate feet. Has 2" Shephard casters. Accepts

The use of this filter gives a surrealistic effect in landscape and architectural photography by producing a "storm-like" cloud effect, "moonlight" effect, and "wood" effect. It is indispensable for tonal separation in still-life photography and for the reproduction of documents which have become illegible.

Liberation Moog synth (key-tar)

drum/keyboard stand pad & stand

A nice vintage Liberation Moog unearthed from dry-storage (since around 1987) :: shot 01.04.2008 :: cleaned up :: series of 56 images posted 06.04.2008 ::

My brother is a professional musician, so I'd imagine that he did a few gigs around Calgary, AB with it (circa 1983-1987) - then went down to California to study music there, and it's been in storage ever since.

No case came with it, don't know what the story was there. There is a separation of the wood seen in picture 5 (near the neck), and a triangle plate seems to be missing from the far right side of the keyboard module seen in picture 23 (on my site).

I play rhythm guitar in a garage band, and unfortunately do not play keyboards or synth, but I tried out every key, and function and they all seem to work as expected. My brother fully restored a Mini Moog as well around the same time, so I'm sure if there were any niggles with this piece he would have restored it as well - he's an anal sort like me.

All that comes with it - is shown in these pictures - more detailed image sequences can be seen on my website :: If you'd like to see higher rez versions, just send me an email.

I'll be happy to try and answer any and all questions, but note that I'm getting ready for a photo trip, and will be out of town in Early June. Local pickup is encouraged, or I might be able to bring this with me on [said] trip to Vancouver, BC, via plane. Otherwise I'll have to build a wooden box for shipping...

Not too many of these around, the few that I've seen on eBay have gone in the 2,000.00 dollar range - don't delay, grab it today!

I think my brother said, Bob Moog designed the keyboard section to be as heavy as a vintage Gibson Les Paul - that's why the power supply is in the rack mount piece.

SONY TCD-5M Stereo 1/8" Cassette // The Sony TCD-5M - people liked it mostly for its universal media - the analog cassette - which is available almost everywhere in the world and very steady. It's a stereo recorder, providing separate level displays, choice of four tape types, releasable limiter and noise reducer (Dolby B), inertial wheel speed stabilization, 1/4" jack unbalanced mike inputs, built-in monitor speaker.

Vintage 1950-60's era kitchen table and chair set + rocker.

Iwata RG-2 airbrush

RG-2 in box PC-61 cup

RG-2 (right side) RG-2 (left side)
A great airbrush for larger work or heavier materials,
in LNIB condition - only blew some black ink through it to test it when I go it - never had a compressor that had enough PSI to push this baby. I bought it to do a mural in Vancouver, but the order took six months longer than anticipated to arrive (the brush), and the gig obviously didn't pan out because of that, but I thought I'd use it anyhow. Twelve years later, I think the answer is "nope". Images show a standard quick release thread attached.

The Beatles Anthology (Hardcover)

Awesome hardcover book by The Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr / Hardcover: 368 pages / Publisher: Chronicle Books; 1 edition (October 5, 2000) / Language: English / ISBN-10: 0811826848 / Product Dimensions: 13.6 x 10.2 x 1.6 inches / Shipping Weight: 6.2 pounds / this also ended up coming out in paperback as well (black cover - sept, 2002) :: online review quote :: From Booklist What should be the final word on the Beatles has arrived. It takes the form of a massive oral-history tome, its contents derived mostly from recorded conversations with Paul, George, and Ringo for the recent TV documentary The Beatles Anthology. Those are augmented by excerpts from interviews with John that are integrated effectively and almost seamlessly with the new material, and by occasional comments from the group's closest associates, such as recording producer George Martin. Big as it is, the volume virtually overflows with fascinating tidbits about growing up in Liverpool, early gigs, the rise to unprecedented fame and acclaim, and the Beatles' pervasive social influence. It seems crammed much in the way that the Beatles crammed several lifetimes' worth of music and living into the decade of the group's existence. Although the contents are somewhat sanitized--this is, after all, essentially a group autobiography--the four address less-pleasant incidents, such as the sacking of original Beatles drummer Pete Best and the petty squabbles that led to the group's 1970 breakup. The text is accompanied by more than 1,300 photos, many letters, and other memorabilia. There isn't much news, though. After 30 years and hundreds of books, few secrets remain to be revealed. But even familiar bits of Beatle lore seem fresh when told in the band's own words. Expect heavy demand for this monumental release, especially after the holidays, from frustrated Beatlemaniacs who failed to find the pricey item under the tree. Gordon Flagg

1969 VW camper van, or pre-1984 VW Westfallia (i.e., air cooled) : 1970 Maurauder : a decent Ford truck, like the F150 - can look like crap, but running with a decent tranny for under 1k and passing inspection would get me excited.

misc gear:
vintage Rubik's cube (from the early 80s - I can tell you how to know), Sawyer's 500 R spring loaded slide (straight) tray - circa 1950/60s, Kids piggy bank from the late '70s, early '80s - plastic, perhaps glass - sort of Pachinko-like - you would put the coins in the top, and they would roll down ramps, and get sorted into the proper denominations. I was enamored of it as a kid. Old manual typewriters, like a Royal or Underwood. Woman's Cannondale touring, hybrid or mountain bike. SEIKO digital watches circa 1984, such as the calculator, audio-recording or B&W TV watch -- must be in working condition (the screen needs to work, might be able to clean/fix the buttons). Ski boots size 11.5 or 12 (mens). working or broken coin-op games from the late 70s and early 80s - or up to 1988-ish. Thinking of *upgrading* a piece of gear? I might want your things collecting dust around your place :)

MP3s: No Doubt - Sting - Superbowl XXXVII (SOS Message in a bottle) [26.01.03] - great track - anyone record that on tape - I'd like to have an mp3 (or better) version of it.

computer gear:
Working or not : vintage classic coin-op arcade machines, circa late 70s and early 80s [Asteroids, PacMan, Tempest, Space Invaders, Qix, Arkanoid, Frogger, Galaga, Galaxian, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Robotron, Joust, Marble Madness, Zoo Keeper, etc.] - perhaps some late 80s or early 90s, especially if they were variants on classic titles. . . . Marquees looking for : Solar Fox (and side-art), Tempest (Overlay) . . . Macintosh G3 desktop, G4 Cube, or older G4 system -- will pay up to 500.00 for an old ProTower box depending on model, or up to 25.00 for an old beige G3, or up to 250.00 for a mac-mini. . . . Atari 1040STE, Mega2 or Mega4, Atari color monitor SC1224 . . . Nintendo Game & Watch MANHOLE . . .
