    Modification photo

    Bed wear: how much should deter me?

    I visited the Hendey again today, this time with a test gauge.
    Measurements below. TLDR: how much bed wear would scare you away from an otherwise complete and functional Hendey 12x30? I have to take...

    Thanks for the added info. Looks like some of Hendey's similar machines in the 50s (e.g. 1x30) were geared for top speed of 1200rpm so I won't worry about that.

    My main concern at this point is...

    Well I got to spend some time with 29837 yesterday and I'm a bit disappointed. The sellers represented it as working well, but there is at least one serious issue.

    What can I learn from a Hendey serial number?

    I'm looking at a 12x30 numbered 29837. If anyone can tell me what records indicate for this serial number, I'd really appreciate it! The seller has dementia and his family only knows he purchased it...
