Purchased in 1994 in Warren, MI from a woman selling off her ex husbands tools. I didn't know anything about it at the time, just thought it was sort of cool looking. Unlike the other Hammond routers pictured here in the owwm archives, this unit is direct drive as opposed to belt driven. Motor is single phase, 220 volt, 18,000 RPM and made by Dunmore of Racine, WI. Unfortunately I only have the one picture of it shown below. It presently resides in a far corner of my basement buried behind other stored machinery.

Side note: I classified this machine as "Wood Working" only because I felt it's present day usage would be such. The machine was originally used in the printing industry to route lead (metal) type.
