    Brent now that you said it out loud, I bet you find one shortly. Especially with the UK connection Mark has.

    Well if I'd known it was that easy.


    I want a setting gauge too!

    Thanks Mark. Literally two hours after my post about my quest for a setting guage, I was contacted and now have one in hand ready for action next week.

    Paul maybe posting a CDN flag outside your shop would be convincing. LoL.
    All kidding aside just let me know what your searching for.

    I thought I'd sent you this from mine a few years ago.
    Hi Pfakir.

    I've been looking for it, but haven't found it yet (found a whole bunch of other tags though...). Anyways, I'll add it to the next update.

    Thanks, Vann.

    You got a great machine, that maybe 1000 were ever made!

    I do have the same machine, and it might get sold when I die....(but I hope not).

    At 2300 lbs., it is not a toy.

    JTA 553, test 41690, of 1952.

    And now for some boring trivial musings:

    - the last JTA in the Wadkin by Test Number thread is JTA 1024 of 1965, indicating that at least 920 were built.

    Cheers, Vann.

    Don’t count me out as a Canuck Mike. Born and raised in B.C. I got chased out due to 30% unemployment in the late ‘80’s.

    Glad to help out Brent. Gotta find good homes for our surplus Wadkin. I always have my ear to the ground and speak both languages well. So Paul, and anyone else, especially Canadians, if you're looking for something let me know.

    I have found most of what I can handle in my shop. It's no temple but...that's where I send some duplicate finds. Right Jack?

    Myself I am on the hunt for a Wadkin setting guage to use setting blades on my RD and RK.

    JTA 553, test 41690, of 1952.

    And now for some boring trivial musings:
    - the JTA is in the 1936 catalogue.
    - the first JTA in the Wadkin by Test Number thread is JTA 212 (108th built) of 1940.
    - the last JTA in the Wadkin by Test Number thread is JTA 1024 of 1965, indicating that at least 920 were built.
    - a lot of early Wadkin machines had 'A' as the third letter, indicating that the machine was AC powered. Generally this third letter was dropped by the early 1950s, but for some reason the JTA retained the 'A' through to at least 1965 (along with ECA and EKA tennoners).

    Cheers, Vann.

    Great. Just great. Someone else gets a JTA and I still don’t have one.
    Looks like a nice one Brent, congrats on a great score. That little fella is a nice addition to your equipment quiver.

    Nice score, hope that you have a chain hoist to help in the clean up and reassembly.

    Congrats Brent. They're great machines. Here's a link to a manual just in case you haven't already got one:
