Thanks so far.....I've had this machine for a while and used very little. I've been a little narrow minded as far as it's other uses... I was thinking of parting with it but now I'm not so sure. I've been playing with shaping sheet metal for a little while now, mostly cars stuff, and this may have some potential. Of course if the right offer is made....it may still go! Any ideas what she may be worth? The company is still in business (Guillemin) in France but thier web site is in French...me no speak wee wee! Lol.... anyway, I contacted them for possible more info. Looks to be one of thier first machines produced in the 1930's. I really would like to find out how it got here?
