The doors look like American walnut... if the guts are in it, that's a no-brainer...

I'd say that since it has what appears to be the correct crank, then the original works are likely there too! Would it have been in Syracuse or environs....

If anyone is interested in this, I only live one and a half hours away and I will be working in Springfield all next week.

I don't want to be a "downer" but I think a lot of "us" are just about out of room.... :lol: Seen a lot of unique machines at decent prices on Facebook lately, not moving ("selling").

it happens.... ;)

This does seem like a bargain, though....

Yes it looks so, But has anyone actually asked the seller at least to be sure? Of course yes at 50 with the guts is worth it. I can't cross the border to pick it up... :'(
