Can't find much info on these but this one looks to be in great shape for almost 100 years old. Anyone have any experience with these?

If you have not looked there yet, try PM as several members have the Model A

thread is about 3 years old but perhaps a start for more info...there is also a Yahoo! group AFAIK

IF you are considering purchase, for that price and looking fairly complete (found one manual through links on PM...there were A LOT of extras available during that era and at least some of those are visible in the ad photos so...) to me it is a "buy", if the rpm is not going to be too limiting a factor for you
