    The seller and I are talking.

    Some notes: The first pic, represented as a "dental" module is apparently a lab module.

    I have additional pics of the real dental module, and what he thought was a lab module, but that I think is really a pharm module. In short, we are trying to figure out what he has.

    Some modules are apparently still in Germany - ie: he doesn't seem to have a complete disaster hospital here, yet.

    These are Czech surplus (new in box). Everything electric runs on 220v / 50Hz. (and uses an electrical plug/outlet you don't have). You would eithor need to use it overseas, get a generator that kicks out 220v/50Hz or do transformer swaps... ie: MAJOR HASSLE! Ditto w/ plugs/outlets.

    Still unsure on dates but it looks like these are from the 1970's and maybe the 1960's. That means that all drugs / supplies are basically toast - but a handfull of items may still be good. (particularly supplies - assuming any drug items are strictly of historical interest).

    All hardware items are prepped for long term storrage and in new condition.

    We are discussing the reality of his asking price which is high (arround retail from a specialy shop) for some items. He seems willing to negotiate. Suggest people hold off till pricing is more firm and what he has has been determined.

    I ordered one of the trauma kits and will report back when it arrives. (anticipated - end of month)

    Shipping is high. Quoted $200 to a buiness, or $250 to a residence. This is from the west coast to the East coast. Presumibly, it would be less to the midwest. That is per-pallet, and this all is big and heavy - so we are talking pallets. Shipping gets more attractive with multiple items on a pallet. He's looking into competative quotes for shipping, as he only got one.

    I fielded a query as to a complete set - we don't know what all that is, yet.

    Bottom line - right now it's overpriced, the seller is figuring out what he's got for sale and parts are still overseas. In short - hold off! This is comming together - slowly...

    series identified so far:
    N-5b (equipment - scales, mortar/pedistals, hot plate, burner)
    N-5ch (ukn)
    N-5a-ch (ukn)

    Z-1a (equip and supplies)
    Z-1b (chair and light)

    L-1 (ukn)

    N-6agi (ukn)
    N-6a-f-i (ukn)
    N-6f (ukn)
    N-6abcd (ukn)

    If anyone has Czech language skills or knows of any ref giving an inventory of Czech Disaster Hospital contents cira 1970 please contact me!!!

    OK - this is going very slowly, but it is going...
    Here is the translation from Czech (THANK YOU Lucie (aka: Lucka)!!!)
    of the dental chair box (Z-1b)...

    List of Objects in the Set
    Mobile Dentist Chair

    1. Mobile Dentist Chair
    2. A receptacle for spit (Spitting-box, Cuspidor, Spittoon) Arm (link, attachment)
    3. A receptacle for spit (Spitting-box, Cuspidor, Spittoon)
    4. Plastic water cup
    5. Bolster (head support)
    6. Front rest/base/sill (this is possibly the foot rest in front of the chair, but I don’t know for sure)
    7. Jointed support/backing/rest
    8. Cup holder
    9. Hold-down screw (I’m not sure what term would be good here and also, I’m not sure about the Hold-down – I can’t clearly read the word – the second one)
    10. Leather belt


    These are the boxes ID'd so far...

    so far I've seen:
    N-5b - this is the "lab" box you sent me pics of. I believe it's really a pharmacy box, but too soon to tell.

    other N series boxes in stack photo:

    dental is:
    Z-1a (supplies)
    Z-1b (chair)

    L-1 appears to be lab supplies - you sent a link in initial list indicating it was the dental kit (glass tubes on door).

    Unidentified boxes in the warehouse...

    I wonder how much of that might fit into a mini-van?
