That book is full of Wico Magneto Knowledge in this day and age, which of course equals money and power to those who have it. I am sure the buyer will be very happy with it.

Same guy bought both with the second bidder right behind him . My guess, they both must be "new" magneto men and need WICO information , but where else can you get it .
Make a new friend today, and a lot on the way through . Paul-"OLDIHC" #227

Same seller as the charging blocks, the magnet charger, and numerous other high dollar magneto manuals.

I saw 'em and liked 'em but can't justify that kind of money when I will never encounter most of the mags covered therein.

This seller "done hisself proud" and hopefully the buyers get what they are looking for too.

The winner Mustgetorganized could have got that for $200 dollars if he could have mustered up the self control to bid at the end of the auction.

You see the foolish tit-for-tat bidding between those two top bidders. Why would anone do that? WAIT. Bid your limit, one time at the end, either with a sniping program or by key stroke. Sorry sellers, but it needs to be said.

So, the real interesting footnote to this senaio- is the seller can see the identity of the persons bidding. He can then go look up his bidding history and behavior pattern or each bidder. And he can just as easily ask his un-identified friend to bid this guy threw the rafters. And thanks to the new ebay policy we are all none the wiser.

Ok, so...where could you get 'secret' information like that? There are reprints available of some good manuals and second you could post here and offer to exchange photocopies. Ive copied a lot of matterial and recived much in return.

I have a copy of this book and have found that the Wico service manual is an impressive collection of magneto information but I found that you need to have the equipment to work on magnetos before these books are really helpful.
If the manual does save the buyer from sending off a few magnetoes for repair, the manual would then pay for itself in short order.
