Sandow chest expanders pop up on a decently regular basis on the UK eBay site (not so much on the US site) and if you're interested in one Colin then I'd say wait for one to pop up that's complete, unless you just really want it right now.

In my experience/searches good old chest expanders pop up more on the UK eBay site in general than on the US site for whatever reason. I've gotten a couple chest expanders from the UK eBay from sellers (amongst other things) who were kind enough to ship here to the US, though shipping is always expensive. They're more rare (& typically more expensive), but every now and again a Sandow expander with the spring-grip handles will pop up for sale on eBay.

You can also see two different types of the Sandow spring-grip dumbbells in this photo.

Looks like it is also missing the foot stirrup attachments, where you attach them to one end so you can stand on them, and do curls, presses, etc... I have a full set/appliance...

Also missing the little poster that normally came with it...

Just to be clear, the stuff in that photo above isn't mine. It's just a photo I found online. ;)

The foot stirrups are a nice addition/attachment to a chest expander. I have a pair that came with a Jack Lewis expander I bought from the UK eBay site. :)

Thanks folks . I can't afford anything more for awhile, except for a few used plates I am watching out for. This week I have bought the Terry's dumbbell grips and Vulcan Gripper, so am happy; but do enjoy window shopping!

I hear ya Colin! I enjoy "window shopping" on eBay, but sometimes I just have to stay away because I'll see something I want and spend money I really shouldn't be, lol. :lol:
