Well, I have had this for several years, but never had nerve to take it apart!, This is the hardeset thing I think I ever worked on, When I finally got the motor out..I was shocked!! Expecting a Lamb 4250, I couldn't believe this, I still have no clue who made it, it has GREAT big bearings, not the normal sized ones of a Lamb, no markings except the date, 1 51.

After the one in the Newsletter!

I had to fix this one, and believe me, it is about as difficult to get apart as anything I have ever worked on, Everything comes out thru the front!!

Now that is one really, really cool looking machine. I like the way it tapers back.

Thanks for sharing that one.

I have no idea who made the motor.....sorry.

Simply Stunning!

Wow, Hans, that is a beauty of minimalist sculpture and testament to the art & science of die stamping metal sheet. As startling in it's way as Fred's prize-winning bronze General Electric tank, both high end examples of the ultimate Submarine Torpedo Cylinder. This must have been an expensive vacuum to produce with all assembly through the front even tho the design kept separate parts to a minimum.

I don't recognize the motor either but that looks like a hefty thick pair of fans in there.

Please tell us you've massaged that minor dent out of the side while it's apart.

Take lots of pictures - sure looking forward to the afters.
