I have always wanted a DP like this and could not pass it up when it popped up on c-list. The guy I got it from said it came from an auction at a factory, he was not sure what they did. There were several at the auction going for six to seven hundred, this was the last one and cheapest because over the years it had been picked apart for parts, needless to say there is a lot missing. He bought it to fix up and never got around to it, and that's were I come in. I have already got it broke down, trying to figure out what's missing and scraping off an extremely thick layer of grease. There are a couple of tags one is W. R. Colcord Machinery Co St Louis, and the other is McDonald Machinery. Thanks to Brian Kachadurian for the reprints, they have been and will be a big help in restoreing.
