Still have not found any model number in the usual suspects locations, but did ID it in a 1926 catalog
So what I have here is a Model No 96. Quite the deluxe model, does not seems to come up very often.
It is a two speed, quick return, auto feed model. Can also be adapted to power with a pulley, max 250 RPMs. Boy that would be throwing oil and grease everywhere at that speed :-)
I also seen drawing with ball bearings features from the 1902 catalog
Found this pic, one of the rare few, of a model No 96. Note that one has ball bearing.
She is still surprisingly heavy, even with all the parts I removed. So now that I know the model number it was easy to find out how much they claim it weigh.
Not 300 plus, not 200, just a mere 130 pounds! Shipping code Feather. Yes, it`s the biggest of the small ones (usually between 60 and 100 pounds) after this one you jump into biggest baddest machines, 300 - 400 pounds and up. The big guy.
Still, it`s very awkward to pick up, and you have to be mindful of the rotation of the parts cause, they will pinch you (read seriously bruised you or worse) in a hurry. It`s a big brute.
Bob, who just found out by asking my wife, that we had throw away gloves all along. Who knew? :-)
