Estate Auction

Hi all – if you missed out on the Harmon Estate sale – you can still get in on the action! Cabin Fever took over the estate when I returned to Seattle last year. They have been slowly selling the inventory over the months following the sale in June of 2014. BUT! They have saved some of the best stuff for their annual Expo and the upcoming sale on March 22. Check out the inventory here.

Day No.102 – But wait! There’s more…..

When I began this journey, I knew this project would take around 1/2 a year. Today I realized that 102 days have gone by – it seems time has really vanished with the dust….

Thankfully, I’ve been very fortunate to have some extra hands this week. Friends flew in from Seattle and Austin to help out in the lead up to the big sale – the dates of which will be announced in the next post! Here are some photos of our joint efforts.

Day no.97 – The Dark Room

I forgot to mention that Dennis was also an amazing photographer (surprise, surprise – will his amazing list of talents never end????!). The last room we still have to go through is his elaborate dark room, filled with antique cameras and photo equipment. Here are some photos of it:

Yesterday I found a few lovely family photos taken during the early days of the work shop.

I also found a vast collection of jars containing raw sapphire, agate, and ruby. This must be the stash I have heard so much about that he used for making jewels from scratch.

Here are more photos of other items in the shop. A surplus of collets of every size and make (a few small sets and many singles), a cabinet containing almost every type and size screw imaginable, and some microscope and machine parts/accessories.

Day No.54 – A Demagnetizer to End All Demagnetizers

We’ve been a bit swamped here with requests for information, opening the new ETSY shop and filling orders! BUT! there have been many new discoveries. Such as another amazing demagnetizer, a beautiful antique bench vise by Bleckmann, and a very peculiar escapement drawing.P1140405 P1140414 P1140355 P1140338
