Just any old manifold? I might know where there's a dusty system made of old leaded glass and glass stopcocks. I would expect it wouldn't be worth your while; the vacuum gauge is butyl phthylate, the stopcocks need greasing, but I'm pretty sure one of them is broken and they sure aren't cheap these days. Pyrex greaseless stopcocks cost lots less, but then you're stuck finding someone to assemble it. There's a guy out in the Carolinas who makes them custom--way spendy.  I'm not sure if anyone else has responded to this request, but feel free to clarify: how many kinds of gas (probably 2, right? red and blue?) and what kind of cylinders or flasks, openings needed for blow hose, electronic vacuum guage, main pump? Grounding electrode?  Horizontal or vertical?

Pyrex manifold for two canisters with vacuum gauge is what I'm looking for. I know SVP's manifolds I discussed with Mark and I already have a quote.

I worked on this kind of stuff it's a very nice set and it's exactly what I want, but when you add all regular options it's over my budget for the moment.

It's why I 'm trying to find a used one

      New York-New York sign headed for Neon Boneyard


      https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/new-york-new-york-sign-headed-neon-boneyard


      By HOWARD STUTZ
      LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

      Workers on Tuesday removed signage from the New York-New York that had greeted visitors to the Strip casino since the property opened in 1997.

      But the 30-foot gold-border neon reader board, marquee and canopy won’t disappear forever.

      The signage was taken down in three sections and will be reassembled at the Neon Museum in downtown Las Vegas to become part of the Neon Boneyard.

      At 14 years old, the sign might be the youngest item at the attraction.

      “It’s a beautiful sign,” said New York-New York President Cynthia Kiser Murphey of the company’s first donation to the museum. “We’re excited it’s part of the Boneyard.”

      The removal by workers from Young Electric Sign Co. was in conjunction with development of MGM Resorts International’s $100 million retail, dining and entertainment district. The project is under construction between New York-New York and the Monte Carlo.

      The outdoor promenade will eventually lead into the company’s planned $350 million sports and entertainment arena that will be built behind the two resorts.

      Construction will take place on an all-new exterior facade at the southeast corner of New York-New York. Murphey said nine different access points into New York-New York are being created as part of the outdoor district, which is creating a “pedestrian environment.”

      The area where the sign was located near the casino’s Brooklyn Bridge and Strip entrance is being transformed to create outdoor patio seating for the Nine Fine Irishmen pub and the Hershey’s Chocolate World, an anchor attraction within the district that will occupy 13,000 square feet inside New York-New York.

      Hersey’s Chocolate World will feature an 18-foot-tall replica of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and other over-sized candy brands. In December, New York-New York added three new shops — I Love NYNY, Swatch and Stupidiotic —as well as a Starbucks location.

      Other new shops are expected to open in the spring.

      Hershey’s Chocolate World is a central feature in MGM Resort’s plans for the 63-acre outdoor plaza and arena area. The attraction is expected to open in the spring.

      Other attractions include Shake Shack, a New York-based “roadside” hamburger and hot dog stand developed by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group. It will open its first location west of Mississippi River at the gateway to the outdoor park. The park itself will have dining pavilions and performance spaces.

      The Monte Carlo’s European facade will be replaced with Double Barrel, a roadhouse-style bar and restaurant being developed by SBE Entertainment, and a Sambalatte Coffee House. Diablo’s Cantina will remain in its current location.

    • Back in the late 90's, before i ended up buying the family business, my parents talked to several different business brokers.   it took nearly almost two years to find one that was trustworthy.  One just wanted to sell us a book about the history of the business, another couldn't get any interested buyers, some just want to put your business up on a website, etc.   I eventually bought the family business (still not sure if that was a good idea or not) and we worked out our own terms.   Plus there was no brokers commission.   One of my realtor customers is also a business broker and we're supposed to get together.  With COVID on the wane, I hope to meet him farily soon.  Maybe one of your customers is a broker as well as a realtor.   I suggest that you reach out to SCORE and get some free help.   SCORE is part of the SBA and it's all free and the people are eager to help you.   Eventually I am going to have to sell and have been doing monthly zoom meetings to go over that subject, plus lots of other "stuff".    I'm now 63 (and wish I had contacted SCORE thirty years ago) and figure I can afford to retire in another 35-40 years.  :)     Go to the SBA website and search for what you want and they'll match you with someone.   I'm in the local chamber of commerce and another business owner told me that it took him 3-4 years to make one of businesses "bankable" because most buyers don't have the cash to buy you outight.   They will have to go to a bank for a loan so all your books, inventory, etc. will have to be set up so a banker can understand your business and approve the loan.   I'm supposed to catch up with that guy and get more details but we never seem to be at the same meetings.   Again, SCORE will have people who can give you better information than "some sign-guy on the internet".     What I can say that I've been upgrading equipment, having things serviced professionally, keep the trucks on regular maintenence schedules, etc.    When I bought the business, most everything was old and run down but I was used to it and knew what needed to be replaced right away and what could stay.   No one will want a business where a lot of equipment is close to the end of it's useful life.   "New and Shiny" sells better than "old and dusty" even if the old stuff is better than the new.   Best of luck!
    • What's the best way to sell my 51 year old commercal sign business?   millersignsinc.com     Tanks,     Rob
    • I know Neon Wizard does
    • Hey Brian, I tried to get to the art room to ask our Flexi techs. But, it was a busy morning.   I know in Corel Draw if you have the text converted to curves. You can look in object properties at path and it will show the path length. Which is the distance around the letter plus inserts.
    • Thanks Rocco. I was able to find suppliers that would ship to us. But, we would be on our own for set up and training on the new machines.   We are going to send our fabricator to a couple of shops that have purchased from our prospective supplier and check out the equipment before we buy.   Thank you for taking the time to reply!
