Yard sale find today. I know it’s missing a crank handle and a drive fitting. I think I can make something that will work. Model 720-25250

This is the first I’ve seen in person. It turns and the carriage moves when I turn the headstock. Cleaning and lube should get it going good.

I’m not sure what if anything else is missing.

I did find a manual. The link said Model 720- 25250, but it is 25251 on the pdf. Any major differences ?

Any and all help greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

wow – a blast from the past !! I almost bought one of those things back in the ‘80s.
I would be very interested when you get it all dialed in and working.
there are many examples of what it can do on the basic google search.
good luck with it !!

Unfortunately after having one for over 30 years and never using it I gave it to a charity.
It was given to me but I never came up with a need or project to use it for so I finally gave it up.
