Notes: I acquired this machine the good old fashioned American way. I heard it was for sale in a local pattern shop. I went to see it, asked the seller how much, paid him the money, shook hands, and had a deal. It's always magic when a willing seller and a buyer come together. The machine had been in this shop for more than 40 years. It was still in use when I purchased it about a month ago. It is being replaced by a CnC mill. The seller had to remove a header from the overhead door to get the machine out. He hired a rigger to remove the machine and load it onto my trailer. Unloading it at my place was easy with the Lull. The machine is in good condition. There is little wear on the ways. It also came with a bunch of tooling and the original cabinet from Oliver. This is by far one of the most interesting machines in my shop.
