Comments:
I acquired this machine from Plaza Machinery in 2003. This model is the same as the 25-100 model, this one is a long bed with a L-00 spindle, Flame hardened bed ways, and a taper attachment. I had to take it apart and carry it piece buy piece into my basement. The last shot is of the variable speed drive which is a little tricky to adjust but once you understand how it works is really quite simple. also if your belts a shot don't buy old whipped VS belts on ebay the two belts are Gates 1622V336(top) and 1622V297(bottom). I also recommend link belt for the spindle belts they are so much easier to change!
