Cat. 300 and 140 watts Chicago, Illinois. Works. TERMS AND CONDITIONS: HAPPY BIDDING!!!!!!!! AND GOOD LUCK!!!!!!! I will contact you within 24 hours with your total by sending you a checkout invoice so it saves you from emailing me and asking for a total. All OUT-OF-USA buyers should ask for a shipping quote before bidding if my auctions state that the item is available world-wide only. ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS. NO RETURNS. I WILL ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS HONESTLY. I SHIP ON MONDAYS OR WEDNESDAYS depending on my work schedule. 1) IF you have any questions or doubt about anything, please email me your questions. All items sold as is. Remember, you have several days to ask questions. No refunds. If you are not sure about bidding on something, its best you don't bid. I WANT you to be happy with your purchase with no surprises. 2) Please bid on the items, ONLY, if you are a serious buyer. Its not fair to me or the other bidders who are serious. 3) Buyer to pay for all shipping costs and insurance (unless you opt to not have it and you accept all risks). Email me your zip code if you need a quote unless its quoted in the auction. 4) Sales tax will be added to those items sold in the state of Florida which is 7% unless you have a current tax certificate. 5) A note about electrical items and/or appliances being sold. I strongly recommend that if you plan on using any item that is electrical, that you have it completely checked out by your local appliance repair technician for his/her approval. And even after getting such approval I recommend that you do not walk away from one being used. I personally do not recommend using them. These items are vintage works of art and design and are old. Thanks and good luck.
