well, the rain stopped......FINALLY !!!!
got out and did some running around, saw a couple of guys working out in front of an old run down use to be bar&grill, and decided to stop on a whim and see if they might have anything i could use (hood really) ..... so i got the nickle tour of the joint....
hood was galvanized, the place has been closed for a long time apparently...no griddle or anything under the hood
as we were walking back out i caught something in the corner of my eye.... from under a couple of shirts (place had been used by the owners as a thrift store last couple years) i spotted a fry basket handle
i looked back at the guy and said "hey man, what are ya doing hiding the good stuff", lol, he didnt have a clue (owners son)
we went over and uncovered a nearly new condition silverking skr27bkd counter height NSF refridgerator(!!!!!!!!!!!) and sitting on top of it was a star 208/240 volt counter top deep fryer(!!!!!!!!!!!!)
he called his parents back (had called them to ask about the hood previously) and asked about these..... i could tell there was some hemming and hawing going on over the phone.......
and i dont know what in the world came over me, but i blurted out "tell her i'll give her 100 bucks right now for the both"
he relayed the message...... lol, i loaded up both into the truck and hauled butt before someone came to their senses !!!!
im still in shock over this..... i priced out both on ebay and craigslist the fridge comes in around 900 average for used, and the fryer, i couldnt find used, but new is averaging 850.......
the fridge is out on the porch right now, took it about 20-30 minutes to start coming down in temp (thermo in door) and has been running at 40* for the past 6 hours.......temp knob is at about half way
i think i got a killer deal
i havent tried out the fryer yet, need to run a temp 240 line to plug it up, but will have report and pics tomorrow afternoon sometime.....
this was a nice little slice of cake at the end of the week
