A fellow Model T club member offered and asked if I would be interested in being the custodian of this beautiful Repco rod machine, on which I gratefully accepted.
Now set up and I had a play with it today.
This bad boy will do rods up to 2 foot long, makes my other one that only does T rods, look like it's baby.

Frank,

Thanks for keeping some history going! Not only with the T's but with older equipment.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Nice one Frank. I hope I get a go at learning to drive it, of course after pouring my first set of Rods!

Just curious, how do you set the machine axis and wrist pin axis parallel?

Ted,
There's a key way running the full length of the height pole at the back of it and several sized mandrels with a selection of cones for both ends of the rod.
