Default burring machine

Bud, I am not 100% sure but the middle picture looks like a wiring machine and not a burring machine. Yes I might be interested in one or more of those, my email is smorgan@classicplating.com. What might the asking price be?
Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve, email was sent.

Did you happen to see it. I'm asking 150.00 plus shipping for the wiring machine and bench mount stand.

The Niagara large burring machine and bench mount stand, I'd like to get 100.00 plus shipping. Niagara machines do not fit in pexto stands.

a large machine will burr big stuff faster. Saves a whole lot of cranking.

Default Burring machines

There are small and large burring machines, and I believe that the tiny one referred to is called a "pepper box" burring machine. As stated, the tinier the machine, the smaller the circle it can burr. The larger the machine, the less cranking it takes.

A referred to as a "pepper box" are opened on the sides to expose the gears, as explained too me! Just saying!

If I had to choose between L&S burr I would go small as it can do very large as well as very small diameters. If I'm doing large diameter work (pails) I would opt for the large burr. Less handle cranks to complete the circle.
I'm not lazy, just efficient.

Default Pepper box

Very good machine. How old is it though? Got to get my 581 restored as purchased from Bud!
