Hi, well... i did it, i went and bought a slew of items i have no idea how to sell. Now, make no mistake, i can sell things (especially on Ebay) but when it comes to this!?.. i am wondering if i wasted my 138.00   

How/where would i locate an expert willing to take the time w/ this WITH PAY..?  ???
I don't even know what to say when i say it.. i just held up a number in a barn room FILLED w/ men.. a womans dream right? wrong.. i held up the number, kept it up (auction house in Idaho) and  the room went quite (im a  very small petite gal)... i had a weird gut feeling to get this.. well, as i kept holding my number other men were shaking their heads.. AND OF COURSE, THEY KNEW THEY NEEDED to help me outside w/ this HUGE purchase.. OMG~! THESE THINGS WEIGH A TON! and that's only me holding 3-4 of them! some are as tall as me!

Not only did i buy all these silver, black,, metal things, i also acquired (included in the 138.00) over 40 sharpening stones, tens of bags of scouring pads?.. and omg, every knick knack possibly known to man in regards to a chain saw.. EXCEPT! THE GUY WHO BOUGHT ALL THE LINK THINGS, he wouldn't talk to me.. i guess he was mad or something.. i offered to sell him what i  had.. he threw his hands up.. so, never-mind him....

did i waste my 138.00?   now i don't  know what to do.....

If you were close to me I would give you double your money back. ;D  You did very very well on your purchase IMO.  The 2 SugiHara bars are worth more than you paid for the entire Lot.  All the bars have a numbering system which gives you the info for chain specs, length (some not all) and mfg part number.  I bought 70 bars 5-6 years ago for $140 thought I got a great deal yours whips me badly.   Group all the ones that are alike.  Post whats stamped on the bar we will help you determine what they fit.  Congrats on a smokin deal.

You aren't hurt any.
There are several around who would gladly help you get your money back and a pretty good profit to boot!
Where are you located?

An auction is just like box of chocolates you just never know what you might find .I held my hand up too long at one once and became the proud owner of 26 wall mounted toilets from a hospitol for the paltry sum of 80 dollars .I would gladly trade all 24 I have left for half those bars ,shipping not included .

You could bust up those toilets and use them to fill in that washed place on the property?

I have busted them up and put a few pieces in the trash can every week.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

I remember when you could buy the crushed toilets that didnt make the grade at that  plant that closed down.  Peoples driveways looked odd with it in them.

I used to do very well at auctions until reality TV came along and told every yahoo that they could quit their job and strike it rich...now I just stick to clean outs, lots of folks going broke and don't have the manpower to move their junk, it is nice to get paid to take stuff away instead of paying for it.
