Default 1875 American No. 1 in a Three-Quarter Cabinet

Hey everyone! I finally finished my 1875 American No. 1 in a rare Three-Quarter cabinet. Only two of the cabinets are known to exist at this point. Below is a teaser pic with MANY more pics on my blog. It's been a blast having the opportunity to work on this special machine and cabinet. Hope you all enjoy the pics.

Cherry or walnut for the wood? What ever it is, that's a beautiful little machine and cabinet.

I was going to say, "You've seen one, you've seen them all." And in this case that is almost true!!

It's really beautiful. I assume you have your own museum. Is it open to the public??

LOL......I guess it's my own personal museum. If you're ever in the Pittsburgh PA area let me know and I'll give you a tour!

As best as I can tell, I should have a BLT there waiting for me

1892 Frister and Rossmann TS 1-1

Now, if there's a nice juicy steak (medium) and a glass, or two, of red (Argentinian Malbec) I can be in the car in an hour. And as a plus I have a lot of family in Philly so I'd be most of the way there.
