Default Busch R5 Vacuum Pump & Chamber

I bought this a few years ago and have used it about a dozen times. It runs perfectly and like new.

The switch was replaced by a Busch rep with an inline switch.

I have a video of it running if you want to see it. I'm slowing down my pen making side so I don't see me using this again.

I have a TurnTex vacuum chamber which has been used the same amount of times and is perfect but stained from the dyes.

Make me a good offer and the set is yours. I'll work with you on shipping as it is very heavy but may fit in one of those USPS priority mail boxes. I think I'd rather buy a couple of cheap towels from Walmart to wrap it in that and ship with UPS. I'm thinking about $30-$40 for shipping. Unless you want to pick it up.

Sorry, not a weight in the pump. A weight in the vacuum chamber

Good question. I have the pump on eBay right now as it doesnít seem anyone on here is very interested in it.
Once the pump sells, assuming the person doesnít ask about the chamber too, Iíll sell it you for a cheap deal.

I think I'd be happy to get $550 for the pump and the chamber. I think that's a bit of a steal.

I will include all the dyes and any other stuff I have when I ship it that you could use when stabilizing.

I'll work with you on finding the cheapest shipping option.

Okay, first person with $250 can have it.

Vacuum chamber you can have for $50

We'll figure out shipping costs and I'll throw in all the dyes and any other stabilizing stuff I have.
