picked up in Maine, have no information on it. When I pulled the crank case cover off it looked brand new, no oil, but brand new, it was crust and rusty. but surface only. I picked this up Tuesday this week 12/15/2015, as it was a Christmas gift from my better half. could not wait to tear it down and see what I had. well truth be known, I completely rebuilt it using all original hardware and parts, it was that well cared for! I just threw on some paint. Maybe someone can try and date it for me? it has no serial number on it anywhere. The finest part for me was when I pulled apart the cutter head and witnessed the original Parks cutter knives. measuring everything up on the knives, I would say they were never sharpened or replaced! can't say for sure how many board feet went through this gem but it couldn't have been many! I feel bless with the find, it is truly the best Christmas gift I could have received. I did not take any pics of before but here is a few of after.
