    Default ATW records?

    Is there a way to find out histories on ATW machines?

    One of the parts suppliers like Bourn & Koch may do a little of that

    B&K has a serial # list for High Duty and later machines- year of manufacture is available. Some years ago they offered a book of High Duty machine drawings (no dimensions), probably have quite a bit more Pacemaker material though.

    If there are pics of a candidate machine, more might be known...

    Not sure its what you are looking for, but a brief history on American Tool Works, "Correspondent Greg Menke" gets a shout out about mid-way down :
    American Tool Works Co. - History | VintageMachinery.org

    Not machine specific, but serial number by date from 1920-1957:
    American Tool Works Co. - VintageMachinery.org Knowledge Base (Wiki)

    Here is a candidate for research. 20"x48" with a 3" lift kit.
    I have found good general information on V.M. And the link that Johnoder gave me.
    http://pounceatron.dreamhosters.com/...in-15-1940.pdf
    A lot of great information.


    As far as specific information on my lathe I don't believe machine specific information is available accept that serial number page. I have searched but it comes down to the right key words. I could be missing the right words to search

    As far as Woodsrider's Question:
    Is there a way to find out histories on ATW machines?
    John's suggestion of contacting Bourn& Koch may be a the best option.

    Maybe a call to B & K and try to get them to release their records online. Wishful thinking but nothing lost trying.

    We like to know

    Sorry about the small photos. my computer updated and isn't giving me the JPG option. They p me off
    Same photos in this thread are full page pictures ??
