Title: ? GEO. BURAND ???
Post by: Aunt Phil on September 05, 2015, 06:49:07 PM
Anybody else ever stumble onto a forged scraper he made?

I pulled a sweet low mileage babbit scraper GEO made.  I know he made it from a beat to hell file cause GEO took the time to stamp his name in before he tempered and hardened the tool. 

I spent a whole 10 minutes cleaning it up enough to read his mark.

GEO didn't waste much time grinding the file teeth away, and he had a damn good sense of balancing the scraper, so he was probably a machine tool repair man.
