I took a load of "stuff" up to the auction this AM. I helped tag for a few hours -- by 11AM there were 4 full rows filled with "stuff". I'll go back up tomorrow and get some pictures.

I took up some more "stuff" this morning and I think they will stop accepting items today. They were going to stop at 2500 items --and they are almost completely out of space for the auction. So, if you are considering bringing more "stuff" to the auction, you had better check with the club before loading up.
There are a fair number of engines mixed in with all the stuff. I'll attach a few pictures.

That is a Domestic sideshaft driving a pair of single line winches -- seems to be all there, although a little bit stuck. My guess is its about a 10 or 12 horse and the whole rig probably weighs close to 5 tons---

All those engines and no room for a big Domestic in the shed . My Cardiologist would nix that deal , if he knew about it . Guess I'll miss the auction, again, while having "FUN", even in NJ on the way through .

Paul, I'm with you regarding that big Domestic--just moving that beast is more than I want to think about--20 years ago I would have gone after it like a dog on a bone!

Bob, I didn't notice any aircooled flywheel engines that caught my eye -- several Maytags, some nicely restored.

Ray Rice, hoping for no rain tomorrow (last year was a real swamp!).

The domestic brought $7200, Gray with clutch pulley, $950, and the 3HP famous was a no sale. Reserve of $4500 was too high.

I'm kind of glad I didn't stay to see the Domestic sell --I think somebody got a bargain at $7200. I'm a little surprised by the high reserve on the tank cooled 3HP Famous -- its rather unusual to see a reserve on anything at that auction. (I HAVE seen people bid up their own item --and buy it back--I don't approve of the practice.)

Jeffk, I think you did a great job auctioneering--your auction wagon was moving markedly faster than the other auctioneers. All the volunteers--auctioneers,clerks,parking help -- just everybody, made for a very pleasant day (altho wet).

We all try our best to keep things moving. Reserve prices have no place at this auction. If a seller wants a certain price for an item then sell it privately and take an ad out. We are there to sell sell sell. The ice cream last night made my throat feel better. I predict a sunny day next year☀️

I went up Tuesday, and they had 12 rows completed by 2 PM! I went back on Friday to help run the Auction, and they had 17 rows of stuff! they wanted to cut things off at 2500 items, but the final talley was a staggering 2763 items! The rain held off for the first hour, then fell steadily until about 5 PM. It was a great time, and I learned how to 'drift' steer a golf cart! Toward the end, the clay/wet grass combo was a real bear to drive on. I kept the bidders amused with my attempts to bring people and paperwork to the auction wagons. Especially in rows 12 and 13, going down the hill was an adventure! The last time I attempted it, the machine turned sideways, and slid all the way to the bottom of the hill. I almost ended up in the woods! Up by rows 16 and 17, things were no better. I had to get creative in order to get to the auction trailer. The lady that was with me was not amused - she screamed all the way, as I drifted a turn right up to the back of the trailer. I thought it was cool! Lots of engines this year - I counted at least 25. or 30. The BIG Domestic went for 7200 +tax. Most engines went for cheap - in my opinion. I did not see any air cooled flywheel engines, although there were a few maytag singles and a twin. The singles went for 160 +!

Exclamation Re: Hudson Valley Auction 2018

Thankfully, that didn't happen to me, although the hill at the ends of rows 13 and 14 were close. As for reserves - HV usually does not put them up unless you pay a premium, and that the item is special. One item I was interested in was a Vespa scooter. When it came up - the auctioneer said "You want a laugh - the reserve set on the scooter is $2700 - any bidders?" That drew a lot of laughs from the crowd, and no one bid. Someone said "You could buy a new one for that!". Granted, only 228 miles on the clock, and it looked good, but mirrors missing, off road for 5 years (2013 inspection sticker), and not running/demonstrated, an obvious no sale there. Some people just expect too much

The auction went well this year. The office streamlined the sign in process by giving out the bidder cards in the mail. You didn't have to stand in line for hours, first thing in the morning. If you got a bid number this year, you will get one in the mail next year. NO check in, just start bidding! I stand watch for the grounds on Friday night, and this year only had to watch 2 guys looking over the rows at midnight. They didn't see me watching them until they were 1/2 way thru the field! Last year was a different story, I had to chase 4 people out at about 2 AM, as they were going thru boxes and moving stuff around. Some people! I had one moron banging on the office door at 5 AM! Lights out, door locked, no one obviously there, the
common sense thing to do would be to come back later, not bang on the door for 5 minutes! Check out went fast too! The bidding was over by about 6:30 PM, and most of the check out was done by 8 PM. I left about 1/4 to nine, and things were pretty well finished by then. I was home by 11 PM. I have been helping out at the auction for 30 years now, and enjoy every minute of it!!
