Day No.102 – But wait! There’s more…..

When I began this journey, I knew this project would take around 1/2 a year. Today I realized that 102 days have gone by – it seems time has really vanished with the dust….

Thankfully, I’ve been very fortunate to have some extra hands this week. Friends flew in from Seattle and Austin to help out in the lead up to the big sale – the dates of which will be announced in the next post! Here are some photos of our joint efforts.

These two drill sharpeners can either be sold as a set or separately. They come with a large variety of dressing/sharpening wheels. Both have an attached light and loop.

The Schaublin 120 VM

Due to the many inquiries I have received about the Schaublin 120VM, I have decided to do a post on it with photos and information. You can bid on this machine on the Repository page listed on the top menu.

This is how it appeared when it was advertised in 1947:

The Schaublin 120VM

Dennis used this machine almost every day while working in his shop, but he kept it in absolutely perfect condition. The original machining marks are still visible on the bed. The center height of both the head stock and tail stock are spot on.

It is strange to think that this is the last year of Dennis Harmon’s workshop. It is such a privilege to be one of the last to ever step foot in it. Here is a photo of him not long before he died. I can’t help but wish he were here to ring in the new year. This evening I am going to raise a glass to Dennis.
