My Pacemaker is 1967. Came with the original paperwork saying it sold new to a gold mine in Arizona. When I looked it up I found American Tool Works was stripped and broken up right about that time. 70's Pacemaker sounds suspicious.
They went thorugh several owners. The final breakup didn't happen until the late 1980's, when White-Sundtrands got the remainders after a "hedge fund" corporate raiders group stripped them for the two blocks of downtown Cincinnati they owned. They were still making brand new designs until the mid-80's ? I had a 78 and an 80. Their last nc machine was a beast : four axis, bazllion horsepower, weighed as much as mt rushmore.
