I have one but it is not in good condition, and I am not sure I could find it very quickly.

I passed on one at a Midwest regional sale brought in by a local, he got $85.00 for it.

I've got one somewhere, I bought it at a junk shop in the late 70s. If I remember correctly I gave $4 for it. I bought it and used it to build a log home for some friends, or helped some friends build their log home. We cut all the trees on the property and used draw knives to remove the bark from all of them. They bought 4 new DKs, I bought mine and another guy already had his. I remember mine is an HD Smith, they bought theirs from Lee Valley,  and told me they would have bought me a good one if I would have asked. I remember because every time I turned around someone had mine using it and I had to use one of the new ones.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.
