    I am picking up a very clean SB 7 tomorrow. It was a University machine and has been sitting unused pretty much since day one. I can't wait to hear the music it makes.

    I also have a 10" Lewis with vise, and a 16" Stockbridge. The Lewis needs a stand and a drive (the one that came with it was pretty well cobbled) while the Stockbridge needs a good rebuild.

    I'd be interested in seeing photos of other Lewises, if you guys have any.

    Default 24" Cinci

    I've got a 1941 24" Cinncinati Heavy Duty with a universal table out of the Ford Rouge Plant.

    Fellow member Dave Garvin did a very nice job repairing and repainting it before I got it from him.

    I had a 16" Whipp shaper I had to move out for lack of room but now have an Atlas 7B that does a fine job. I don't work metal for a living anymore so am not in much of a hurry. But any excuse I can find to use the shaper is part of a good day, here.
