Why are these things always on the other side of the USA? *LOL*

I am singing the same song as you Launderess - so many over the mountains and near the other sea

Am actually working on something

But am gobsmacked at transportation costs. Don't want to think about what shipping something from the West cost. Been there and done that with the AEG set. *LOL*

Transport costs...

*IF* someone is able to buy this from an agreeable Craigslist seller, there is quite a reasonable shipping method/cost to use if you can work it out between you: Greyhound GPX. I use it OFTEN. I don't know exactly what that KA weighs...or how knowledgeable the seller may/may not be about appropriate packaging methods....but I can tell you that my furniture shipments of sub-100lb items with Greyhound tend to run in the $100-125-ish range.

Box gets dropped off at local Greyhound station and goes cross country (if by direct route/no multiple stops) in circa 6-8 days. They ring you when it arrives at your local terminal for you to pick up.

Thing Is Finding A CL Seller Willing To

launderess's profile picture
Not only do proper packing/crating but then transport to the Greyhound or other shipper collection. Oh and you've got to get them to accept PayPal or whatever other means of payment besides cash on collection.

Many CL sellers have expressed to Moi at least that if they had wanted to go through an "eBay" type transaction that is where their stuff would have been listed. This is the ones that bother to respond at all.

Best thing one can do is either be willing to travel and pick up the thing oneself or have a very good Secret Squirrel locally willing to help out.

I RARELY attempt any CL purchases outside my own 'hood unless something is located near an out-of-area person who owes me a favour. But when you want something badly enough, there is almost always a way to make it happen :-)

Be very carefull...

First of all, I see it's missing one of the glass racks. I had this machine (not this exact one) this model KD2-P and restored it.

Parts are really hard to get and the Cast Iron Drain valve should it need to be replaced is around $230+ dollars if you can find one.

The next part is the Bakelite Trap where the water drains from. It should be handled like a egg. I believe unless you have a donor machine that part is NLA.

You need Very Hot Water to heat up all that porcelain too. They are powerful machines, hold a lot of plates, but the top rack is limited.

IIRC the general consensus seems to be unless the household has a good amount of HOT (at or >140F with probably 150F better to allow for cooling) the best KA portable are from the Superba line.
