Comments:
Machine was acquired at a farm sale in Rudement, IL Nov 14, 2010. Rugged barn/shed condition with about 5 lbs of mud-dabber wasp nests throughout. Is getting a complete cosmetic restoration to start with then will correct any operational faults when reassembled. Have disassembled it and have all castings cleaned to bare metal, primed and painted so far.
