  • jlegge, I really liked the post memorializing your Father. Stirred up a lot of old and good memories, Thank you again. I find it interesting you being in Rockford, I have just inherited a son of Rockford. It is a B.F. Barnes (1898-1907) 23" drillpress that was my Father inlaw's and I suspect his father's and maybe his Father's as well. They ran a sawmill years ago and had a small machine shop for upkeep.
    I plan on doing a mild restoration, it is currently still working well, with just a little aging and a couple of ouches that I will fix. I will be covering it on the antique forum, mostly as a tribute to the man who owned and last used it. Lest we forget who we are and where our tools came from. Marsh
