OK already.  She Who Must Be Obeyed is getting serious about garage clutter
and unfortunately she is right.  I have made this marvelous offer before but
the previous lack of interest was defying.  I even tried eBay where they
were sold to a guy but I let him back out of the deal after a story about a
wife and dangerous weapon.  He promised to pay my eBay fees and send a
little $$ for my trouble but alas, that promise was never fulfilled.  So,
here I go again.

Believe it or not, I have 21 of the glorious Benton Harbor Lunchboxes that I
need to move quickly.  I prefer not to split them at this time.  As you can
see from the list below many if not most have mods but almost all are
complete.  I had previously asked $350 plus shipping but I guess that was
too high.  How about $210 plus UPS?  That's only $10 a unit plus shipping!
They are all bubble wrapped and ready to box and ship.

Interesting trade opportunities considered as long as the trade doesn't eat.


P.S.  Why do I have 21 Lunchboxes?  Good question but no good answer.  I
guess I went through a phase or something.  :o)

Note:  All the units have been examined but none have been serviced or
cleaned.  There may be other
internal mods of which I am not aware.  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.
