Default Essex Brass

Got an E-Mail today from Essex Brass. After 30 Nov. they are closing down, for good, unless someone buys the company. We've bought Machine Oilers from them in the past for a paper mill company we serviced. Sad to see such an old company go closed. I've even bought engine oilers and priming cups from the, for my personal use. Wonderful company to deal with. Friendly, courteous and great products and fast shipping. Years ago spoke with the gentleman there, about the mixers. He said they'd had a fire many years ago and destroyed all the antique patterns they owned. Mixers, oil tanks, etc.

They called me a few weeks ago to let me know they were closing if they did not find a buyer. Essex Brass has been looking for a buyer for a few years now and have not been able to find one. My understanding is the former owner passed away and they have not found anyone to take it over after his passing. It will be sad to see this 116 year old company close.

So, did the get a reprieve from the warden (someone buy the place) or has it in fact closed down. If so, anyone hear about a sale ?

I understand that Zack @ Flywheel Supply bought everything @ Essex & is in the process of moving it all to his place in Craig, Iowa.

Check the Flywheel Supply catalog in the above post. Everything is $1.00.

This must be a mistake or a Pretty good deal for most of the items.
