    That looks like what was loaded onto Igor's truck at Rustfest ...

      Good to see someone appreciates old iron and is willing to make an effort to see that it doesn't end up as scrap.

        This one looks like it's in better shape that the one Igor picked up!

            Looks like I might be getting this... As long as I'm able to convince the folks that I don't plan to scrap it! I already own two Cowan machines (one of them is a rare window sash moulding machine). This could be very exciting if it works out! Many thanks to the OP for helping me get in touch.

              I am very very interested in this machine for my Cowan collection. I see Igor is first , but would get this in a heartbeat if he does not!
              Sure would add to my collection of Ontario made machine!

                Andy, I just sent you a PM about this.
                I'll let the seller know right away that you want it. Please let us know how it goes, and post lots of pics! I have more machine right now then I ever deserved to be around . I sent Just another hack a PM letting him know that you'd like to get in touch with the OP for the machine.

                      Hi All,
                      Going Saturday to see the machine and figure out what is needed to load it. I have not seen one of these and wonder if anyone has any information on this kind of machine?

                        Going tomorrow to get started at getting this awesome machine home! The owner says his backhoe wont lift it... He said he has lifted 3500lbs with it so I am surprised the machine weighs more than that. So I am going to get some of it taken apart and bring home what I can.
                        Wish Me Luck!
