The only thing I paid was a few cuts from some broken glass. Well, that and all of the time invested in checking the dumpster each week for the last few years.

The results:

Boxes and boxes of glassware and equipment. Several 2 and 3 liter RBFs, a 3L sep funnel, 4 Friedrichs condensers, two Edwards RV3 vacuum pumps, one Welch 8907 pump, two Buchi r114 rotavaps with water baths, a thermo 6255 vacuum oven, a Fluke 412B HV PS, a thermo CL2 centrifuge, a Lytron mcs20g cooler, and a thermo electron 2870 shaking water bath, two cases of TLC plates, and a couple of variable reflux distillation heads.

Lots of other condensers, graduated cylinders, addition funnels, flasks, assorted ground glass adapters, gas valves, some quartz stuff, and more.

All of the equipment seems to work and I tossed all of the broken glassware already. Some things have minor damage but they work all the same.

I had to make several trips back to the dumpster to get everything. Like I said in my other post, apparently one of the chem professors retired and they cleaned out his lab. Lucky me!

I'm keeping most of it, but if something catches your fancy lmk and maybe we can work out a deal.

I am so jealous of you that I cannot put it in words.

I would never have imagined that anyone on earth possibly could put stuff like these in a dumpster. Part of me thinks this cannot be true and you are just trying to trigger the passionate chemists in us.
