I might have made a big mistake. I talked to "Flea-Market" Kenny about the old machine he picked up. He said I could have it for $125. I have no idea what it's worth. I think it's complete, but I don't know for certain. I don't even know if I can get it running. Well, knowing he traded a pistol for it. And that he had the cast iron base sand blasted, he probably has about $125 in it. I told him I did not want to buy it, but would trade for it. I offered a WWII British Enfield .303 Jungle carbine in trade. I bought this gun before I got married, back in 1958. I had no idea what it was worth. Kenny said no, not interested. As soon as I got home Kenny was on the telephone asking for more detailed information on the gun. I could hear him typing. He was checking the value on the Internet. Why the crap didn't I do that before I offered it in trade. The asking price for the old gun is anywhere from $295 to $495. Ol' Flea Market Kenny has telephoned me twice this evening, wanting to see the gun.
I don't know what I'm going to do. I have no idea what the old machine is worth. But I might own it by this time tomorrow.
