Well, you have seen this machine on the gallery.
Now, a little thread for the restauration and perhaps to find a name !

in the hands of the seller

a very heavy load










at home













yeks !













chance! it's just dirty in back



however, the front is a little damaged. It's necessary to roll up our sleeves and get down to work.





well, the group is exactly similar to a "Lépine" after compare with the french friend's machine who have a Lépine.
We are on the track ?

Very nice Vincent, looks like it found you just in the nick of time. Looking forward to progress on the rebuild. Any idea as to vintage? Looks 50s, 60s, but the gauge looks 20s, 30s. The Vassal name is interesting...

Nasty! That looks like ambergris...
What's the height on it. It looks pretty cool once you put a shine on it.
