JR, I just finished looking at the pics. Did you keep the machines? I'm kind of partial to VNs. I have two. The one in your photo is quite a bit older than either of mine. I only saw one fragment of a lathe in one of the pics. A man has to have a lathe. I guess your avitar says it all. Take care. WWQ
I applaud your efforts to preserve and display these old machines. I coordinate the Machine Shop Museum at Tuckahoe Steam & Gas Association http://www.tuckahoesteam.org near Easton, MD. If we can be of any assistance please let me know.
