HEADS UP! Shopsmith to appear on PAWN STARTS tonight! (7/25/2011)

I know that this is short notice, but Pawn Stars will feature a look at a 1950s Shopsmith woodworking machine!  Being a '50s era machine means they won't be offering much for it, but I'll be curious to see if they bring in an expert to give some background on it.  It's on th History Channel at 10 p.m. tonight, July 25th, 2011.

Revised: Ha ha! Just as I thought. They had a guy call them and invite them to his home where he wanted to show them his old Shopsmith. Rick and the "Old Man" went and it turned out to be an 10ER. As you would imagine, the conversation went something like this:

Rick: What a pile of junk!
Old Man: No it's not, that a piece of Americana!
Rick: How much do you want for it?

After some haggling they paid the guy $50

The 10ER sells for $250 every day on eBay, so as long as they don't put too high a ticket price on it in their store, they'll do just fine on it.
