When did Cox switch to the screen over the venturi on the golden bee? I won one on ebay last night and I am trying to figure out a rough estimate of when it was made.

The pinned in screen appeared (I think) about '61-'62 and the U.S.A. on intake groove about '64-'65. Thimble-Drome initially simply pressed in the in screen for a year or so (1960-'61), but most of those are now missing. Also, remember the stepped cylinder in early seventies.

Ok,

Thank you, when it arrives I will post a picture of it. Looks to have a pinned in crimped screen, made in U.S.A and possibly a stepped cylinder. Not sure about the step as the pics are fuzzy.

Not sure from the tiny pics but looks like it has a straight neck case so most likely 1970's.

Indra,

Funny thing is I saw the auction last week and missed the end time by a couple mins. Since there was no bidders I contacted the seller and told him I would be willing to pay the asking price of 14.95. I also told him we could do it through PayPal to make it secure and to prove I was legit.

He said no and that he would relist it at a lower starting price to attract more bidders. I ending up sniping it at $8.05.

He would have been better off to take my original offer........ lol!

That's exactly what I was thinking. Of course I didn't tell him it was a Cox Golden Bee and not a vintage tornado engine...... Very Happy

John:

Curious comment.

Why doesn't E-bay deseve a a "cut"? Huh...

So far I have been able to acquire the engines that I wanted through private party transactions. This keeps me for buying on impulse. Sad

As per Rons comment above Dave, sometimes aproaching a vendor results in the 'I must relist as I want ebay to get
their share' response. No I don't understand it either.
Very Happy

They will have had their cut in the form of listing fee but as it hasn't sold via their medium
I don't think they are entitled to any more.

But that's just me

John,

I have yet to hear that one yet, it doesn't surprise me though. I usually don't contact sellers offline except in this case I was upset I missed the end time by 2 mins.

Ebay has grown into a monster and as a part time seller I believe their "cut" is substantial.

They do offer a service but, at a high cost IMO. Ebay has every right to take their cut as it's no secret and they are not shifty about it. Sellers knowingly post auctions........If they don't get their cut I am not going to lose any sleep over it either!

I have contacted a seller about his unsold item before. He re-listed it for me and I bought it.

Matt,

Glad he did! There is a good possibility that his motives weren't genuine as in he wanted more bidders. Unless it was a BIN then maybe it was just for you!
