    I'm very envious. That's a very good condition machine.

    If I ever clean out about 25% of the floor space in my shop, a 6" slotter would be one of the things I'd look for to fill the space back up again. (I have the height for a 12", but 6" would suit my work better.) A roughly 8x20" cylindrical grinder would be another. But no space in the shop for anything until I can get a storage building.

    The original GM research lab was in the Argonaut building in Detroit. It opened in 1927, this is the building across the street from the Old world headquarters on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. they were there until 1956 when the tech center opened in Warren MI. I see your machine is from 1959, they could have had operations at the Argonaut that late, the tech center construction went on for years after opining in 1956.
