    Hi, Your collection of iron is very impressive!
    I too, love the old iron.
    Just picked up a Tannewitz, Type E-2, 14” Tilting table saw/ 8” jointer combo machine. Was not even aware they made one, they also offered a mortising and boring attachment. Your site is quite enjoyable.
    Take care,

    Very nice story on the foundry acquisitions. I was posting a Wadkin jointer picture on owwm.com and saw that you appear to own the majority of Wadkin pictures and equipment on the site. Beautiful shop. I can’t say I have ever consciously coveted anything, Seeing that building sorely tested me. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Arthur… I found this site by accident and noted your shop/barn. Holly Cow! It looks like my house but yours is in much better shape! Any way you can send me some photos of your shop? Esp. the roof eve line moulding details. My white mouldings are all but gone due to 50 years of rot!

    Kindest Regards
    Dev Emch

    Nice to hear from you. I have the drawings for the eave detail. Will those help?
