This is the front part of the carriage with the top slide holder on it. All gears on the front apron are in good shape. The threading half nut works as it should and is in fair shape. Plenty of life left in it. There is some surface rusting on the top of the top piece. I got some of it off with some steel wool and elbow grease. I'm sure with a little work most of that surface rust will come off. This one has the crank handle on it as well. The hold down for the tool block works as it should, and the feed gear raises and lowers as it should as well. I think this is serial number 57, but that's just what's stamped on the back of the apron. I looked the number up and it shows number 90 started in 1920 but the listing didn't show anything before that, so I won't speculate on how old it is. It is in pretty good shape for it's age.

I'll sell it for $150 plus shipping.

Thanks,
Martin

No, sorry. It sold a few months ago. I thought I marked it as sold. My bad. I will be listing my full 608 soon. Just need to get some decent pictures of it.

Thanks,
Martin
