Subject: [CR] ebay outing- mine

Just put a couple of stems on ebay that might interest the group.

The first is a French stem, in a pseudo Herse style. Very nice looking. Branded Tigra, not the swiss company though as it is marked "Made in France" and the logo is different. This spend a hour on the buffing wheel to bring it to a nice shine. Still has a few marks, the new owner can keep going or leave the "character" in tact. Also, binder bolt is copper plated and I believe it is not the original. Lastly, soon to be pictured, I found a stem bolt that should work. I will copper plate the nut to match the binder bolt.


The Second is a Medici Pantographed 3ttt Record 84 stem. 80mm. Original owner stripped first thread of binder bolt and I was worried about it holding well. So I re-tapped to the next largest size SAE (vs. Metric) and replaced with a stainless steel bolt. It hold like it should (has been tested). 100% return if not satisfied.


Thanks for looking.
