That indeed is a fair price John. The trick is more complex. I currently don't know of anyone with that kind of backing to service the debt alone. Mike may be sick of Lava.
I'm currently on a property with a higher value than that but more as a tree farm than a glass works. And not much more. Fine lumber is less popular than wood stove pellets. The Santa Fe property was far more valuable as it turned out, but not as a glass shop. So, Think about that tooling carefully. IMHO.
You have some great stuff listed but these days people seem to make small salable items like pumpkins. If I were younger I'd go after lots of it, but I, like so many are drifting along towards irrelevancy.

Let me know your current private condition if you would please. I do care about that.

Very fair price. Not sick of the lava yet, we make lots of red stuff here.
Wondered about the price as we have a similar, but far smaller, set up here and will be turning it over to the next generation at some point.

John has asked me to bump this forward. He has sold the building. I don't know his stance on parting out the tooling. Inquire.

These always go better with prices. Make sure you consider at what point you're sitting on a bunch of white elephants.

Hi John,

I'd be interested in looking at some of the press & casting equipment, the molds, and the batch chemicals.

I have some business out in western MA later in August (Around the 23rd-25th), so I could probably stop in then to check things out in person. PMing you about that now.
