Low Head no Made in USA

This is a low head without the Made in USA script, removed from a running engine. These are hard to find.

There is a small area brazed on the very rear edge and one bolt hole looks like it has been enlarged slightly; this did not cause me any trouble. $300 plus shipping

Re: FREE

I read it. While it wasn't just a chronicle of his trip in the T, (meaning nothing like Three Peddles Down Main Street), it did include quite a bit of historical information that was related to the T and Henry Ford. I enjoyed reading about the troubles he had and the people that helped repair them, ...

Re: Pan Straightening Table

Steve;

Do you have the dimension information for the holes and all of the add on stuff for your table? I'm thinking I can cut a simple shape like yours with a track cutter, and I have access to one for the next few months. I'd probably build it out of 1" plate and weld reinforcing ribs on the bottom.
