    I found this machine last year at an old equipment yard that was going out of business. It Was setting in the corner of the owners personal shop. Not sure the years it was used in production. Being an hour from Atlanta I assume it was used close to the home office. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      The print plate is the logo introduced in 1970, but the machine itself sure looks like it could pre-date the plate. Looks like Bird-Potts opened their welding operation in Atlanta during 1921.

      I'm not sure the box used matches the print head, just had one to use as an example of how it works. Thank you for the positive support and info!
