No problem bringing $500-1000 on ebay. I have a favorite search for pelton wheels and only see a couple a year sell.

Bruce,

I posted some pictures last year under the thread " What is it? ( water turbine)" 6-29-2007. It won't let me post the same pictures again. Use the search feature to find the thread. There's a water wheel on ebay right now with a grind stone on it.

Thank you for the link! I was trying to imagine what a 12" water wheel looked like, and kinda thought maybe you ment 12 feet instead like used in a mill. NOW I understand what this is.
