need to buy complete electrophysiology setup

Hello everybody
I run a prion laboratory (since 20 years), and I desperately need to record hippocampal LTPs from slices of prion-infected mice. Unsurprisingly, nobody at my University is prepared to let me touch their setup. Hence I will need to recreate a recording station within my biosafety laboratory. So, am in the market for a "pre-owned" complete setup (pipette puller, recording equipment, etc.), e.g. from a lab that is closing down or from a colleague who is retiring.
I do not expect latest-state-of-the-art stuff: it simply needs to work. Monetarily, I certainly shall offer fair market value - but please mind that I cannot realistically spend my entire 5-yr grant on this...
Thank you very much for your attention.

 I should probably add that I

 I should probably add that I already have all that is needed for making the slices (in fact we do a helluva lot of oranotypic slices). it's the electrophysiology stuff that is missing...
