Default Reid, what are they worth?

I was recently at the show in Adrian Mo, last weekend (very good show) and I got talking to a man about the 15 hp Reid that was running, and he told me that you can buy a running engine for around $2500 and up. Is this the case? I thought they would be worth alot more.
I would love to own one myself one day when I get more room and time!

Price is about right, the smaller they get the more they cost!

Maytags Rod, I am in the market for one . Also looking for a good
flat belt , an old belt driven power hacksaw with a vise mounted on it. I could use the clutch pulley on the Reid for power. Maybe sell thin green slices at the next outing. That's not being very nice need to take my happy pill.

Scrap price would be about $1000, for the iron, about another 30 for the brasses, if you get them off!, price of 2500 would be about right, people really want a smaller one. i would love to have one of the 4 Hp ones John Burns is building, even a 6 HP would be great! The 8s are nice, but I probably would have a hard time getting it down my driveway, as I only have 8 feet between the house and the fence next door.

Exclamation Re: Reid, what are they worth?

I would love a big one, but nowhere to put it! I guess I will just have to make due with my Burns & Horner prototype 1/4 scale.

Still runs great, with the original rings!

I love my 25hp Reid, what a hunk of iron. I just found out a few weeks ago that my buddy is working on a 40hp Reid. I had been asking around about the engine and come to find out he had made the deal several years ago and had the engine salted away until he retired. Now we should get to see it run at the Temple, Tx show in Oct.

Is the 40 a twin? (left and right coupled together with a common center flywheel) If so, they are a rare bird indeed! Pictures? If a single, I didn't think they made them that big!

The only good thing lately for old equipment is the price of scrap is almost half of what it was a year ago,
