I've got a pile of nice clean shiny parts. I hope I can remember how this went together... Actually, I have a machine in my collection for help.

Here's a few photos of my all but complete AB Macdonald. I've never had a machine like this apart before. Reassembly was a challenge because you need a second set of hands. I made a belt and it seems to run fine. I just need to fuss with it a bit. Overall I'm very pleased with this project. The difference from start to finish is dramatic.

Wonderful job. Not over-restored and a beautiful example.
