    Default Deckel or clone photo

    Hello all, I found this photo on the antique forum an was wondering if the machine in the foreground was a Deckel. It seemed an interesting choice being in a US government installation. Jim

    I agree, looks like a Van Norman. Others with more VN knowledge can tell us the model.

    This thread reminds me of a good one years ago between JimK touting VN and others touting Deckels as to which was best for repair shop use. JimK was very knowledgeable and amusing to read, but unfortunately is no longer with us. He especially liked the VN xxxQ machines that had a quill.

    Yes it’s a Van Norman. And that photo was just posted by JHolland in another thread.

    I should have realised after looking at the picture more closely that it had to be something other than a Deckel, just from the position of the motor...Jim

    Biggest difference is that there is cross feed on the "knee"
    Dead clue as to not being Deckel

    Dead clue to me is that other than being a milling machine looks nothing like a Deckel
