Going in the auction in the am...... This three deck Eprad 73520 s/n 245 platter served us willingly but could never make up for inherent defects. A center shaft! Inconsistent braking. A make up table that fits and starts. PLus: we had to cut some wire when taking it apart to replace it with a "real man" platter! So: any high bidder even if it's 10.00... if youse wants it youse can have it: if you also agree to pay shipping and packing by us your lowly platter owners. It will require some crating and attaching to a pallet and then a truck to you. Manual and all idiosyncracies will be revealed! Call 207-338-1975 for further info. Me? I would just as easily have tuned it into a mooring (I love it when you talk nautical) weight but others told me that there are plenty of Eprad lovers out there. So: your baby is callin'

The hounds of hell couln't chew on my bones enough to even work up a mild interest in your Eprad Platter. Also, it wouldn't be worth the shipping costs to ship it to the next town.

But as a nautical enthusiast, I'd say, go ahead and make in to a new mooring!

Seeing as it's been 95 here for days and I'm losing it a sailing trip sounds great especially if I get to throw the Eprad over the side! The proj guys and I were literally frothing at ways to destroy the bastard when someone... Ken?... pointed out that there is someone who could use the thing. Oh God! Okay...... we won't burn the Eprad at the stake! Or maybe we'll drag it out to Sho-West and do just that.... hire an empty lot, install a stake, tie eprad on, and burn the suckah! Except at the last minute someone would want the wiring. How much would you give to light the match?

Now that I would pay to see. I bid $10 and a case of beer.

I suspect that bid is a little low to haul the bastard out there.

I will send the manual to the Film-Tech Hall of Archival Fame! However: I still want to burn the Eprad! Maybe this could be a yearly event: burn that piece of trash that's been driving you nuts!

It could be a Pay per View event.
I had some potts platters to add to that pile at the last theatre I worked.

Mike,
Be sure to take plenty of pictures and post them to the site, or maybe even a video of the sacrifice.

I'm starting to like this. Maybe a live web broadcast of a crane drop with pyrotecnics? A burning platter dropped from a crane into a pool of explosives? Like it? Of course I will save the dammed manual!

This is starting to sound like a job for David Letterman!

Actually the platter decks make excellent Patio Table Tops.

I can see the platter table but that stainless under a hot sun sounds like burn material. I might use it if it sustains the fall and the explosion. Just drive around on it and flatten it back out! I'm going for the crane!

Mike - pound the decks into parabolic dish reflectors and sell them as solar ovens or satellite dishes. I can lend you a sledge hammer.

I've made a deal with Boeing to turn them into digital receivers!

I may bid against the guy who wants the thing just for the pleasure of destroying it!
