Very sorry to hear about your loss.  You are experiencing a dilemma that 
will confront many of our families eventually.

Where are you located?  There may be other coilers who could visit, and 
help you identify the unknown equipment, and perhaps give you an idea of 
its value.

Did Chuck have any local coiling friends?  If you could look them up, 
they might be able to help you identify and dispose of the items.

If you can identify the items, it is possible to eBay them specifying 
that they are "local pickup only".

An alternative would be to take them to the local "Pack & Wrap UPS 
store", and see what they would charge to pack and ship the items.  Just

> Can anyone please advise me on how to sell a lot of Tesla-coil items? I'm not sure what many of the items are. I lost my husband, Chuck Cook, 4 years ago and our house is filled with Chuck's treasures---transformers, pole pigs, capacitors, etc. Chuck loved Tesla coiling. I wrote to the Tesla List a few years ago, but shortly after writing, I did a big swan dive into depression and lost track of everyone. I'm a big fan of eBay, but most of the items are very heavy and shipping would be difficult. Any advice or help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you so much!
