Take a look at DELL’s machine This guy got to much time on his hands. If you in the Eugene Or. area , stop in the Woodcraft store and take a look at it.

He’s the last of the guys with the “typewriter inventor” brain cells. I thought they were all dead or locked up.
I guess stuff like that keeps him off the streets.

You got to see some of the other thing he has made. Unfortunately he doesn’t have a computer. I will try to have his friend to get some more pictures of his stuff.

If Dell was an aeronautical engineer we would be on Saturn by now. Very creative. I’m going to try and figue out how to turn on the TV now!

You have to give old Del credit, that quite the machine! Best part is, it looks like he had fun building it.
