[TCML] Charles Pike's Tesla stuff

Dear TCML,

Charles Pike was a prolific coiler who I had met about 10 years ago.  I was
recently saddened to learn of his passing from his wife who is looking for
help disposing of his many coiling-related parts and projects.  There is
far too much stuff to consider eBay or shipping.  The important thing is to
have it go to a good home with a minimum of hassle.  Stuff is available for
pickup only in Lexington MA.  Requests to ship will be respectfully
ignored.  Short descriptions of available stuff is detailed below along
with a suggested no-quibble price of my choosing, a fraction of a realistic
eBay price.  The operational status of everything is unknown and this is
factored into the price.

A Zip file containing photos of available stuff can be downloaded at

If you are interested in any of this material and are able to pick up the
items in Lexington MA, please contact me OFF-LIST - glau1024@xxxxxxxxx -
and I will facilitate a meeting with Charles' wife for pick-up.
