What she looked like when I got her


A 1925 ad for Prentiss vises


The after photo


I had to make some parts, If you would like to see the teardown click on this thumbnail (no bullcrap, just my photobucket album) 51 photos. And sorry not in order.

I will wait on that (thumbnail) till I get Papaws ok

Wow that things nice in big. Nice job redoing her. Looks pretty good.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
