New to the board Hello!
« on: July 23, 2018, 07:22:25 AM »
Hello all,
I am not really a collector, more of an observer.  My grandfather operated a farm in SE Missouri, which my family had operated since the 1880s my first job out of high school was a machine shop repairing printing and bindery equipment which had been in business since 1894.  I've had the pleasure of seeing and using a lot of vintage stuff.   In addition to my "paying" job,  I often purchase large lots of surplus components to resell, and often come across old items.

Oldparts,

Warm welcome to you from Ohio.   Getting to listen to some thunder right now and if we're lucky maybe some rain.    :smiley:

Welcome from the Missouri Ozarks!!!!! :grin:


Hated to hear about the horrible Duck accident on the Lake.  That storm came through Topeka on its way to the Ozarks.  We lost some limbs and even trees.
The ORIGINAL Northwoods.
