    Sorry to steal those from you.
    Yea, I guess the old fleabay has been nice to me lately. I usually don't go there much because I hate auctions, and bidding. It seems I always get outbid, but once and a while you get lucky.

    Yea I wish. I don't think that will be an easy thing to do, but I can try! I have been looking for the Michell turntable parts with no luck, and I know a lot of older DJs, Sound techs, recording studio guys, etc..and many of them collect old stuff like that.
    The search is half the fun, and the reward is greater when you find it.

    Did the seller know what he had? Was it listed as a SW item or just as a calculator?

    The seller knew it was a Star Wars prop. It was part of the title. What really got me is that I was the only one who even bid on it.

    Nice snag!!!! I hate to sound like Pompus ***, but I got my casio for $1.00 at a garage sale!! LOL

    Seriously though, I've not seen one of those go for less than $100 for a looooong time!!! Even though I got mine for nuthin basically, I would still say you got a really heck of a good deal on yours!!! If I hadn't haven't got lucky with mine, I was prepared to spend much more than $75 to get a real one!!!! Again..good snag!!!
