    TurningHead, Sir
    Thank you for your service at W&S.. I still use a #3 daily and it's a great machine. Also I certainly hope your not the last...
    Anyhow do you know of any other divisions of W&S that survive to this day other than Gradeall ?
    Stay safe

    I do not think any "spin off's survive. I believe it was Cross and Trecker that bought the last remnant (in the late 80's) including all intellectual property, and closed it for good. It was the 4th time in a decade that W / S changed hands.
