Why does one person need 21 extra Lunchboxes, my sweet XYL asks?  Spare
parts,  I sheepishly reply.  NOT, says she.  Further she says, either the
Lunchboxes or the SX-88 go."  Easy choice.  I have 21 Heathkit Lunchboxes
for sale or trade.  I have examined each unit to the best of my ability and
listed the descriptions below.  Obviously I could make more selling the
better ones and then selling the rest for parts, but I would prefer to sell
as a package mainly because it gets them out of the garage at the same time
which improves credibility with She Who Must Be Obeyed.

Note:  None of these units have been serviced or cleaned.  There may be
other internal mods which I did not notice.  Most of these came without
microphones or power cables but I do have one extra mike and one extra power
cable.  Manual copies available for each model.

$21.50 each gets you the whole grouping.  That's $451.50 plus shipping.  For
further information or pictures please email me directly.
