    Default Brown and Sharpe Universal Milling Machine for giveaway.

    Hello all!

    I recently tried to donate a Brown and Sharpe universal milling machine to the Henry Ford Museum, as it was taking space in my uncle's machine shop and we need the floor space for tools that will be used more often. They already had another example on display, so their interest was minimal.

    Would anyone like to come and pick it up? We only ask that the person who takes it does not scrap it and gives it a good home where it might be used.

    That is a great little machine. I had a similar one, very useful and fun to use.

    Bummer for me. I read Henry Ford Museum and I got excited, then I realized you are actually quite far away. What's your timeline for removal?

    Late Model Flatbelt drive. Might be a B&S "adaption" to market forces, or possibly a user modified.

    Line shafts were so passe by WWII.

    It was adapted to run with a motor.

    Timeline is ASAP. Had Ford been interested, we would have transported it out. I'm sure if you give John a call, he will be able to give you more precise information on when would be good for him.
