I picked this one up off a guy who is also an appreciator of vintage and antique tools. He had it kicking around forever and just never had space time or use for it. Originally he got it off some old timer who very reluctantly let it go. I have a couple more parts for it not shown in the pictures. Before I got it someone had painted it a grey color... not original so I removed the paint with a scribe to avoid frosting the cast iron like sandblasting would do. This weighs a lot and is a real thing of beauty. Have not quite figured out yet how or what I am going to use it for.
