When you have a moment, please give me the serial number of your Ames Triplex. The higher numbered machines contained helical gearing, which enabled smooth speed shifting.

His post was four years ago, and he hasn't posted since, so not much chance he will see your post.

Try sending him a private message - depending on his settings, he may get an email notification on it.

Definitely the Ames machine belongs in the living room. It is truly a mechanical work of art.
