Early August I took my step-father to the 38th Annual Tippecanoe Antique Tractor & Power Show. First time I had ever been too and from what we heard, maybe the last. It was hotter than Hades most of the day so it was kind of rough to see everything. I was really concerned about "Pops" being 91-1/2 y/o so we sat under the big tent a lot and drank free ice water as needed. All-in-all it was an enjoyable day if for no other reason than to get him out of the house for a while and do something he would enjoy. On the way out, I happened to stop by a vendor who had several small items on a table for sale...this one caught my eye and his was OK with me taking pictures. There was no price on it so respecting the old adage, "if you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it" I didn't ask... I did do a little research and found some info and other pictures HERE AND HERE Also a You-Tube video of one running following the pictures... ManSon -- Small Machines Inc. West Los Angeles 25 California Just a really cool, fully functional self/manual feed mini metal working lathe. Motor is under the head stock spindle. Complete with accessory kit.
