Here are some intersting scans of literature for my South Bend Vertical Mill.

I haven't run across much info for these mills. I'd be interested in anyone that has one or has had some experience with one.

As far as I can tell they were mainly used for educational use.

Here's the South Bend girl years later demonstrating how a trash pump weighs less than her :)
