- OH, WOW.

YOU'VE GOT SOMEGREAT STUFF HERE.

THIS IS AN EMBALMING MACHINEFROM THE 1940s,

STILL MADEOUT OF PORCELAIN.

EMBALMING IN THE UNITED STATESREALLY KIND OF STARTED

IN THE CIVIL WAR.

IT ALLOWED SOLDIERS, FORTHE FIRST TIME, KILLED IN WAR--

TO BE SENT HOMETO BE BURIED.

INSTEAD OF BEINGBURIED ON THE BATTLEFIELD.

MANY, MANY YEARS AGO,EMBALMERS HAD TO

SOFTEN THEIR OWN WATERBEFORE THEY COULD EMBALM

IN ORDER TOFACILITATE QUALITY EMBALMING.

THEY WOULD HAVE THISWATER DE-IONIZER MOUNTED

NEXT TOTHEIR EMBALMING MACHINE

AND RUN THEM CONCURRENTLY.

SINCE THEN WE'VEDEVELOPED OUR TECHNIQUES

AND WE NOW HAVEMACHINES LIKE THIS.

- HAVE YOU DONEA LOT OF THAT?

- I'VE WORKED ONABOUT 12,000 BODIES.

- WOW.

- THIS EMBALMING MACHINEWOULD GO FOR ABOUT $1,500.

- SWEET.- WOW.

- THIS WOULD GOFOR ABOUT $750.

WHY DON'T YOULOOK INSIDE THE BAG?

- WHOA.

THIS IS A RARITY.

THIS IS AN OLD LIPSHAWFROM THE 40s.

YOU WANNA THINK HOW MANYTHOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS

OF HEADS HASTHIS SAW OPENED?

- HE'S STARTINGTO CREEP ME OUT.

- [laughs]

NOW AS FAR ASVALUE WITH THIS...

IF IT'S FUNCTIONING--IF IT FUNCTIONS WELL,

UP TO $4,500.

AND I DON'T MEANJUST PLUGGING IT IN

AND TURNING IT ON.

IT NEEDS TO CUT STRAIGHTAND ACCURATELY.

- WELL, IF YOUWANNA TEST IT OUT,

HE USUALLY KEEPS A WATERMELONIN THE TRUCK.

- A WATERMELON WOULD BEMORE LIKE CUTTING SOFT TISSUE.

WE NEED TOTEST HARD TISSUE.

IT'S A BONE SAW.

THIS IS HOW WE REMOVEAND EXAMINE HUMAN BRAINS.

BEGIN CUTTING.

[engine humming]

- YEAH!

- OH!- WELL DONE.

- IN THE CONDITION THAT IT'S IN,ALL THE EQUIPMENT,

I'LL GIVE YOU $7,000.

- I DON'T KNOW, DUDE.

YOU'RE THROWING OUTA LOT OF BIG NUMBERS THERE.

THAT'S $10,250.

- THAT'S A FAIR PRICEFOR A TOP COLLECTOR.

THAT'S NOT WHATI'M GONNA OFFER.

$7,500.

- WE'RE NOT A COUPLE OF STIFFS,ALL RIGHT?

IT'S GONNA BE8,500 BUCKS IF YOU WANT IT.

IT'S $8,500.

- [sighs]

YOU DO HAVE A LOTOF NICE STUFF HERE.

DONE.- THANK YOU.

- THANK YOU.

- CAN I KEEP THE LOBSTER BIB?- IT'S ALL YOURS.

[laughs]

- IT'S SAFE TO SAYWE MADE A KILLING IN OXNARD.

THE POSTMORTEM COLLECTIBLESWENT FOR $8,500.

WE WERE LUCKYTO GET 500 BUCKS

FOR WHAT WAS LEFTOF THE SHARK CAGE.

AND ALL THE OTHER ITEMS WE FOUNDWENT FOR ANOTHER $680.

WE SPENT A TOTAL OF 1,550 BUCKSON THE TWO UNITS,

AND SOLD THE CONTENTSFOR $9,680,

FOR A TOTALPROFIT OF $8,130.

WELL, TON, WE CAME BACKFROM THE DEAD AFTER

LOSING THAT SHARK CAGE.
