Fixing the World One Broadcast at a Time
That is special!Recent auction find...probably will be my last....my hands have gotten to the point I cannot work on them anymore.
Already spoke to a friend who wants to by what left of my personal cherry picked ones
Then the tools will go.
I I never got a bushing machine, just hand reamed them...but the Ollie Baker spring winders are getting hard to find.
Amazing how many little tools I have acquired over time.
This is a little Swiss made one (I think) as a rule when you see something you've never seen before get it while you can.
I don’t think I overpaid as I haven't seen on like it.
It is not running, but thankfully it is not spring wound so probably just needs taken apart and cleaned.
Really cool part is the glass on the sides, sort of an antique clear with rippled effect. Also the pendulum can be seen through an oval window and is a little horse that goes back and forth.
The ornate brass work and the bronze(?) statue holding up the obsidian globe are all perfect, and look very cool.
