OK, sorry about the delays. Here's some pics.
Original Oliver base and drop-weight system, with modern "Klip gravity pro" head on it. The Klip spindle fits perfectly into the hole. Used a big nut as a washer/spacer.
Mounted it onto a dolly board I found at the hardware shop (Bunnings in Aus.) 4 Wheels makes it easy to move around. Perfect height for me.
Love the description here. It reads at the bottom.
"Purchases of Oliver Stringing Machines are assured of a distinct advantage over their competitors. Besides having a machine with no equal in performance, they also have a show piece that creates tremendous interest."
And, you get the girls...I think this might be Ken Rosewall.
