Build-and-research-1852-Woodworking-
Machines-I'm building for
historic-Site-in-California.

I was asked to Bid on building or supplying the
above so called  "1852 Woodworking Machines".
Too bad I noticed that they were much later,
The
ones pictured, I found out were supplied with a quote,
are of 1880's at least, probably 1900s. I told them about
it and found out that A
vendor had supplied them with
his quote.
The first vendor was at the least, uninformed,
probably, these were supplied because the
machines shown could be easily bought and resold
to the park service for the working museum, but
would be history wise, totally incorrect.
Genuine machines of that time are extremely rare,
and would need to be made by hand, Something I
would love to research and build for them and for
me too, for my hands on museum.
I have since bought a number of 1850's - 1860's
material on these woodworking machines and am
pursuing building them.


*****************************************************
Attached are photos of the machines we need.

I need a written estimate for all of the attached machines
ASAP.

Thanks!
