Default Tragedy in Sweden

I'm posting this here to get more exposure for the affected people who lost their "old time machine shop" museum due to a fire. It links to one of the OTHER forums here:

That is very sad, you can see an engine in the back on the left of the picture. That is a 8HP Desjardin that he had just bought from me to run his line shaft with and had it flown over there a couple months ago.

OK Guys. Lets see how Brad is doing on his treasure hunt. I have offered him a 1917 Champion lathe with tooling. He is interested in it.

What has others offered ???

I emailed him last week about an auction in Lawrence KS coming up that has just about anything they would want in line shafting and line shaft machines. Don't know if they are going to pursue it or not, they did put a lot of thought to it but it is a long haul from Kansas to Sweden.

I have offered a lathe, drill press, line shaft hangers, pulleys, belts, grinders, & whatever else they can use. Seems like the logistics of transportation will be a PITA.
