My Uncle wanted it out of his shop, we worked out a deal. I'm still not sure why I want to store it in the hangar, much less give good money for it. Not to mention it's HEAVY!
It's been used hard for a long time, must've been a "rental." Resetting the key and the gears should be easy.
It's been a tripod...
Has a prosthetic arm along with the only markings/data plate...
Adjustment arm broke, the other one bent during transport to my Uncle's shop.
The socket for the top roller (the "slip roller") is very worn, I wonder about the possibility of machining it out and using a bushing.
I suppose I like thinking of all the curves it's rolled before and maybe rolling a few pieces of thin aluminum a year is a better retirement gig than going unused in the dark and dirty recesses.
I haven't been able to find anything yet about these slip rollers, if anyone knows anything please tell!
