Check out this recent find. While checking out a lead for some old oak showcases, I learned the man I was buying them from was an former employee of an amusement park in the 1950s- early 60s, in charge of machine maintenence around the park. He said one day a vendor brought him this machine to see if he could fix it. After fixing it the vendor never came back, and it set in machine shop for 8 or 10 years until he found another job in Cleveland and he was able to take it with him. He said he was bitter about not getting his repair fee of 3 dollars and kept the machine just in case he ran into the guy that never paid him. It has been wrapped in cotton towels for over 50 years!!!!
