Default Greb mechanical puller

So I went to a warehouse sale hoping to come home with a syncrowave 250, but the guy 40min before me bought the last 5(MFer).

As I walked around, I noticed a rather large puller that was pretty rusted up. It and a few other items came home with me. Turns out it is a Greb auto grip puller. Seems these are pretty old(20s design) but I was able to free it up. It's a 2 jaw puller but it's cast to be used as a 3 jaw too, it's only got 2 arms though I may make a third.

Good thing is you have an arm to copy.

I also scored a power team puller cabinet, posi lock 110, graco pneumatic pump, 2 sets of drawers, an IR half inch impact, and a killer Robbins and Meyers 1930s fan.

I had no idea how expensive the position locks were! I'd never buy one if I had to pay retail.

So I will be headed back to pick up a 55gal drum of oil. They have a miller pc300 pulser external box and a foot pedal that have no welder. How much should I offer for un-testable accessories?

Do you have a use for the Miller pedal? They are proud of them new. And Lincoln. I have a need for a Lincoln, so I can sell spare square 175 tig.

I have no need currently but these guys have good prices so far and "everything goes"so I figure I'd make an offer to help them out. If I get working equipment cheap, then both parties can be happy

There is a local scratch and dent industrial wholesaler near me, Ive been adding to my set of those from that place, about 25% of MSRP.

Dont think I could every pay full price. I used to buy them used on ebay, before this place was around.
