I believe to be the third owner of this machine. I bought this off from craigslist from a guy who purchased it from its original location at Belke Lumber and Manufacturing in Stevens Point WI, just 2.5 miles from my house. I was able to verify its provenance in a video series on Facebook from the listing company for the Belke Lumber property. I spotted the machine was in video 6, quite possibly where it had been sitting for most of the last 100 years.

The machine is in overall good shape. I plan on getting it up and running again.
