    Today's auction purchase

    I found an auction near my home today that had a few things that peaked my interest, so after sitting through 2 hours of household furniture and TONS of Christmas decorations they finally got around to the tools for sale. This is what I came home with. It is the JET AFS-1000. This may be an older unit because all I can find on the web now are listed as a 1000B unit. The filters are as white as the day it was new and the inside of it is just as clean. It has been used but I'll bet not more than a time or two. The down side is that it does not have the remote. I think I'll simply plug it into where I plug my lights in and have it come on and off with the light switch on the wall for now. If I find I need it to run longer I can always pull the lights off by their chain and let the filter run.

    Well......I'm usually pretty cheap....but I did step up to the plate on this. I paid $175.00 for it. Further inspection of it now reveals that it was manufactured in December 2000. So it is an older unit. Although like I said before I'll bet it hasnt been used much. I have plugged it in and it seems to run well and all the controls seem to work ok. I've looked online and it appears that I may still be able to get the remote for about $25.00. So all in all I hope I did ok.

    I paid close to 400 bucks after tax for mine, you did good. I looked for a used one for over 2 months, never found one near me.

    I'd say that was even worth a gloat.

    Congrats. Another option for a remote (on/off only) is the wireless dongles they make for Christmas lights and such. I picked up a few on clearance (make sure you get different channels) after Christmas several years back, for a song. I have been using one for my ambient cleaner for years.
