Yes, 105$ plus ~12$ shipping. Its "well loved" but in good condition, obviously the previous owner didn't know what piranha solution is! ;)
Ebay! The guy obviously had no clue how much what he is selling is worth.

Is this from eBay? I posted a link to a kit that looked like that a while ago that was only 40$. I know it has gone up. Is that Kimble?

I'm going to sell the condensers, or maybe a whole distillation set (no thermometer and no stands/clamps). If someone is interested...

I'm not selling any of the flasks, of the sep. funnel, but everything else is fair game--given a reasonable price.

The whole kit is 24/40, including the thermometer port. I have someone already interested in the dist stuff, but its not set in stone. Even if it goes to him I will still have a liebig condenser left and maybe a claisen adapter to sell.

Everything I have for sale

The vacuum takeoff/receiving adapter and larger lie-big are not damaged--they are wet. I just cleaned them with some hot water and elbow grease because they were exceptionally dirty.

Might I ask why on earth would you be willing to sell the adapters and condensers? They are rather essential for preparational organic and inorganic chemistry: refluxing, distilling and so on.

Because I already have a combined claisen and vigruex condenser. The two condensers that came with the kit would make a poor reflux. Part of the money I get from selling these will go to a coil condenser for reflux. I bought the kit mostly because it was an unbelievable deal and I knew I could profit off buying a few flasks and a sep. funnel.

If I don't have any takers in the next couple days they are going to go onto eBay where I would have to charge more for the same net income.

I was watching that kit on ebay, I was interested because when I started watching it it was at 1.00. I knew the price was going to go up but I was hoping not by much, it was sort of apparent that the guy selling it had no idea how much it was worth. But, it went up to 100 dollars and I said nah because I already own most of what is in the kit and I am saving up for an argon tank and a shlenk line. But at that price I was drooling and so tempted. You are a lucky bastard.

I know, I couldn't believe I got it, until it came! I was half expecting it to be full of cracks--I mean at that price.. but there wasn't a single one, my only complaint is every piece really needs a chemical bath. The case for the kit has craters in it too; I think someone spilt some acid on it. ;) I didn't need most of it, but that didn't stop me, I'm going to turn a profit and still keep all the flasks and the sep. funnel. I'm saving up for a good vacuum pump (and have a few small things along the way.) I'm planning all sorts of great things to do with the new upgrade, especially the three neck flask, something I've needed for a long time.

Good ole Dr.Bob and a warehouse by my house - sells used equipment from a university. I worked there so I priced it :D

I once obtained a FTIR for 105$. I sold it on Ebay and bought my current vehicle ;)

What he doesn't mention is his current vehicle is a 1982 toyota corolla.

;);)
That was a good buy. I have been seriously searching for a bargain ftir for over two years now, they just never seem to come up cheaply.
Perhaps i should encourage our government to overcommit to a pointless war and drive our economy into recession so that all those mean hording research facilities have to file for bankruptcy.
Or perhaps i should try to bring back the tasting of chemicals as a viable identification technique.
