Fun day....

Buyer came to pick up the Bolton, driving the green twin to my old '67 F250. Cool guy who wants to make motorcycle parts. Got him loaded up this morning then went into work.

Came home and started thinking how to get the Samson into place. It took a lot of thinkin' but here she is. My neighbor helped me with the first part but left before it came out of the truck bed so pretty much the whole unloading process was just me.

Further inspection shows the gib is definitely missing and the QCGB needs attention. But, I'm definitely happy with the purchase and the stuff that came with her I would never have been able to get for the Bolton. I feel like this is a worthy project that will serve me well for many years and even though it's a threaded chuck, and a change gear machine I feel like the accuracy will definitely be worth it. How often do you get the original inspection report from 40 years ago????
