I'm not the seller nor related in any way, I just wanted to let you know. Quite a remarkable list of machines you have (my counting was ~35), so please list some more and I hope you'll show us some pictures soon !?

amc- I just learned you had offered some of your machines if I'd drive over and get them- you post/comment to my blog a month or so ago. Sorry, I didn't recieve an email letting me know.

Yeah, I'd be curious as to what you have. Thanks for the offer. Might you have a PB 100 too?

Scott
