NOS hot water bluing kit plus propane burner setup, 1 tank stand, 2 additional black iron and 1 fiberglass tank. Includes all the chemicals and components, except for the faceplate. I closed my gunsmithing business before I could use it, everything still in boxes. It’s just taking up room in my storage unit, so I’m hoping to find it a good home. All of this would cost somewhere north of $700. I’ll take $500 cash, or a firearm of equivalent value. A bolt-action rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor or other non-magnum caliber, lever action centerfire, or semi-auto pistol. Or, if you’re a mechanic or body repair specialist, my vehicle could use some work. Shipping would be prohibitive, so you’d have to pick it up within about 100 miles of Billings. I can’t accept an actual kidney, but I am in need of a transplant, and one from a living donor would be best. If you know anyone looking to donate, please let me know.
