Gilbert Erector Set
Used Not Complete

The large blue plastic piece holds some gears in one compartment and the other compartment is empty.  I think there is supposed to be a DC motor in the empty side.  There is no motor with this set.  If it was ever included it is gone now.  The plastic hub is broken from one of the plastic wheels.  

There is a parts list, a erector instruction book and a model building guide.  The instruction book has a copyright date of 1964.  I am not listing every little piece, but here is a list of the larger parts:

Red Pieces
2 - 5X21 Hole Base Plates
1 - 5X9 Hole Base Plate
1 - 5X5 Hole Base Plate
4 - 3X3 Hole Brackets
4 - Car Trucks

Pieces that are blue on one side and cream colored on the other
2 - 5X9 Hole Flat Plates
4 - 3X9 Hole Flat Plates

Most of the remaining pieces are unpainted
4 - 21 Hole Angle Girders
2 - 17 Hole Angle Girders
2 - 9 Hole Angle Girders
2 - 5 Hole Angle Girders
9 - 17 Hole Girders
6 - 9 Hole Girders
6 - 5 Hole Girders
1 - 6 Hole Girder that must have been cut from a larger one
2 - 9 Hole Circular Girders
4 - 5 Hole Circular Girders
4 - Long Double Angles
2 - 3-1/2" Diameter Plates
1 - MM Wrench
4 - 2-1/2" wheels - the center hub is broken on one
4 - 7/8" Pulleys
1 - Single Sheave Pulley with hook
2 - Pierced Discs
1 - 28 Tooth Sprocket
1 - 14 Tooth Sprocket
1 - Ladder Chain

There are a number of smaller brackets, axles, a crank and nuts and bolts.

The box closes nicely if the blue piece that is missing a motor is not in the box.  Please not that piece is also broken in one of the spots where it would be bolted to a base.  Everything else fits in the box.  

I plan to carefully package everything and mail it to the buyer from the post office in Tower, MN 55790.  For the purpose of calculating postage please assume that the package will weigh between six and seven pounds.  It will not fit in a flat rate priority mail box.  The buyer must pay the calculated postage cost.  There is no handling fee.  Please plan to pay using PayPal.

Thank you for your interest in this item.  Please purchase it and give it a good home.
