Nice item on eBay

Loved the look of this, though for me more costly than desirable.

A particularly well presented example and if mechanical condition matches its appearance it should run like a sewing machine.
Sadly the prices of genuine vintage hot air engines are rather high - which is why you will find me scratching about at the tatty 'home made and probably in need of TLC' end of the market! Given unlimited funds I would dearly love an Ericsson pumping engine.

This one was a little more affordable:-

Unorthodox heating arrangement and slight question mark over parentage probably conspired to keep the price down.

Hi Nick, If it had been known about it would have gone for several times the price. It looks like a genuine Henrici that has been modified for electric heating. -- Dave Croft Warrington England

Sorry Dave. I tipped Arthur the nod as I know he was attracted by the previous one. But, short of a heads up on NG (which I think we all agree is a no no), it is hard to pass on to everyone who might be interested. Mind you it was accurately listed and so hardly difficult to find.

Oops! I've just re read your post Dave and realised it was a general observation rather than a "wish I'd seen it". But I do agree that the winner (same chap that bought the previous one BTW) got something of a bargain.

Thats OK Nick. I wrote as a general observation but I do admit that had I known about it I might have broken my "Never Use E Bay" rule.
