To add to George Paul's excellent contribution, regarding whether castings were iron or brass. IMHO the casting were always iron.


That was my understanding too, until Wyatt Marcus found a nickel plated Class M whose castings were brass! :)

Hey George!
One thing I've learned over time, and you just proved it again, whenever you think you've got something figured out, a piece of info comes out of the woodwork that blows everything out of the water! WOW, that's really interesting!

Leave it to Wyatt, eh? LOL!!

Cheers!

1. People who think you cannot turn fecal matter into gold have not worked the day shift with me.
2. Everything is simple & easy to do, provided someone else is doing it.
3. I just make metal smaller, and holes bigger :)

You've got that right, Darren! Wyatt needs to be committed to an asylum somewhere, so we can stop learning! :lol:

I appreciate all the posts. Shawn, your machine is incredible and I'm jealous of your signature tag. :mrgreen: I suspect my machine was nickeled shortly after it left the factory. It is what it is and I like it. Here are the photos after a cleaning. I'm not quite finished but here are a couple of photos. Thanks again for the postings.
