    Yes!! It worked! Lol! So this is my exciting yard sale find from last week..made between 1964-66, pretty rare find and I LOVE IT!! Debating on whether or not to resell since the BF and I got it serviced and running this weekend. The bad paint is flaking and I don't have the tin carry case or owners manual. The good: I mean...just look at her...she's beautiful!!! And she absolutely hums...I'm in love lol!

    FEM, most people have not ever seen one. It was truly a proud moment for me when I showed my honey this and he had never seen one! He knows almost every tool known to man having grown up on a farm and worked with machinery and logging all his life. I couldn't believe I found something he'd never seen!!!

    That is an awesome find! I will definitely hang onto it. Give it a few more years and it may well be worth a pretty penny. Just saying ;)

    It's worth several hundred dollars more than what I paid for it already, even if it wasn't running its worth more for parts than what I gave.

    It's such a cool tool, and very powerful. We cleaned it up and adjusted it and it runs great! Wish I could post the video after we messed with it an hour or so.
