Question: 300 Bradley Upright sold in New Jersey?

Recommended Posts

Ric-Do you know who the prior owner of this machine was? I think is probably the 6th of these machines I've ever heard of:


1. Mine

2. One in OK owned by the man who I got mine from

3. One at Wessel Machine shop in PA

4. One at Frog Valley Forge 

5.One in IL owned by Mark Gardner


As for the 500 lb uprights the ones I know of are"

1. Mine

2. Michael Dillion's

3. One at Max Wiess in Milwaukee

4. There was one at Rockford Drop Forge and I was told it was sold to a machine tool dealer in Toledo for inclusion in the owner's private collection.


Does anyone know of any other of these big Bradleys?

That is one I  hadn't heard of and I haven't heard of any big Bradley's changing hands since I got my 500. That is a pretty raw deal for your friend.  It is possible it went back into a manufacturing setting rather than to an ornamental ironworker. There are a few shops that still use this machines for production.
