Very interesting, Joe....looks a lot like one of the old Serrano machines...even made in St. Louis like they were. Can you tell if it's all there?

It looks just like my Serrano 550B.

Gaines, the parts that I don't see are:

--the glide bars that fit between the 2 glide bars on the machine that allow you to string the mains.

--the weights

--the screw-down clamps for the mounting arms that hold down the frame

It's a nice-looking machine, but without those parts, it will never be functional. They could be sitting in a box somewhere though. You might want to go take a look at it.

Joe-good find. Have you used yours lately?

Steve is correct, when I got my vintage serrano stringer which is very similar to the wingfield model, many of the parts were in a box and just needed a little smoothing and paint. I enjoyed stringing some old classic rackets on it. It only handle standard to midsize rackets and a 85sq head is really pushing the limits of its design. If you have the room, its a great machine to have in your shop :
