Buying a home with a shop

I am in the middle of buying a home with a shop and suddenly without warning 3 other people have jumped in and turned my buy into a bidding war with me as the only person who wants to live
there the other are all investors. buy up house fix them up and
sell them quick or rent them out.with only my retirement and disability income I can,t do the loan thing so its got to be a cash sale. all that i have left is some family heirloom i have spoken with my children and they would rather me sell it all and get a home that is handicap adaptable (i am a l5-s1 paraplegic)so i am selling all my vintage family heirloom jewelry and rolling mill. and unique ingot maker.

I have American bear claw squash age unknown oldest piece in it
is 300 years old. each generation added to it. started out as a
simple silver curved plate an heavy silver chain half round hand
pulled my uncle showed me the draw plate and the mold that made
the first piece. the strength to pull this was incredible.the base
mold was set on the fire so the silver stayed liquid when poured
to spread it out and shape it then it was hammered out a bit saw
another one round he said it was for silver bowls. so that how the
pored sheet must have taken a lot of practice. but way cool. later
other part were added and the person who added the center piece a
hand carved from walrus ivory the trail of tears the original art
work of the piece must have really touched him Seneca’s are not
much for horses.he also marked it as sterling with his letters for his first and last name and last but not least bear claws hinged. the metal is very thick i do not know when they got a mill but i think it was long after this was made.weighs 8.405 oz was told more the 20 years ago it was worth 12000. taking offers even insulting ones. ow forgot the cord looking stuff is elk sinue

more native style jewelry large bracelet weighs 4.599 oz

smaller bracelet 2.041 oz blood coral ring .151 oz its all real turquoise and blood coral no dyes any thing with bear
claws on it cant be sold in Florida and a few other states does
not matter that everything pre-dates the laws . but they can be given as gifts so if you see a gift you would like i will sell you something else
here are a few more pieces i am sorry that the pictures are so bad my camera is broken and this one is also broken will not focus

well lets move on to something more modern less then 100 years old2 solid gold bracelets both 18 k one with no markings just
beautiful bangle half round with hand engraving almost all the way
around a space was left to engrave a name or sentiment. .894 oz or
16.30 dwt

The other is a woven pattern with clasp .864 or 15.75 dwt i can not take less then 3000 for this one out of every thing this hurt the worsted.

both were made in Germany or France do not know which. my mothers
family was right on line.

The mill is a basic one with 2 wire rollers and 2 sheet rollers no
real wear but i did make a lot of wire wanted a combo but budget
at time was lower end not hard to change over if i can do it
anyone can. very easy asking 190 plus shipping about 35 large flat
rate box if i take it apart not all the way it will fit in large
flat rate box. they will take up to 70 lb which is good i do not
know the weight but it is heavy only indication of ware is where i
bolted it down.took a bit of paint off around bolt holes 2 of them
and a few parts no rust it claims to be a 4to1 to be honest i
think they fibbed i would say 3 to 1 despite spec sheet. but who
knows maybe it is and i am a weakling.

last but not least a ingot maker set up so you can do it one
handed has hookup for propane or acetylene and air so you do not
need your torch.that part is removable if you do not like it. have 2 crucibles
used one other never used was saving it for gold. ingot is sheet
adjustable fits in this cast iron base steel body contraption just put in metal and fire it up when metal is ready you just grab the handle and put down all done. cool but better for some one who is afraid of pouring by hand or is handicapped you could do this with a foot ha ha.not
really funny i know we have a few very disabled people on this
sight i am not the only one some much worse of then me. that who i
hope gets this one gentlemen has been on my mind holding his torch
in his mouth.this would be prefect for him. gas goes on top tube and air on side or just take it of and fire with your other torch. this is ajustable and very easy to use

I got it as a present when a freind saw me in shorts and i had some nasty burns on my legs i told him it was spilling a pot of boiling water i just did not get ice and ointment on all of it how can you when you cant feel it. but i think some where in his mind was that torch. so i did get a few burns from being a dumb ass i turned the torch off and droped it across my lap i had on a work apron that goes to my feet but the side of my leg was exposed. did it a few times before i found the burns. I can not find the price of this gadget can only guess over 100 I got the extra crucible from national but they went under i never used it. the other was used for silver you can use other last but not least a ingot maker set up so you can do it one
handed has hookup for propane or acetylene and air so you do not
need your torch.that part is removable if you do not like it. have 2 crucibles and ingot molds the as long as it fit the space the suport is ajustable and i think you could easly make a bigger one if you can fold sheet metal (steel)
I am also selling cath supplies at half to 14 the market price i have lots extra while i had insurance the doc made a typo and put cases insted of boxes those who need them know what I am taking about have a few 100 intermit trays boxes of plain red .bed and leg bags lube tape even a extra elecric wheelchair need new batterys
I have almost 40 days to ajust my bid the buyers broker thinks i need 15 to 20 that thousands more it is a short sale worth 6 times what i am offering it sat for a long time no body gave it a look till i put in a bid then the investor came out of the wood work like cockrochess they are. the only thing in my favor is the bank prefure resident buyers but with cash they could care less who they sell to. hopfully some of those investores are barrowing the money
