    Looking to put on display in a museum in Centerport , Long Island , New York; of old school tanning equipment and tools , If you are getting out of the business retiring and would like to donate items or photos follow my link and email me .

    I have in my life time built out 5 Tanneries and their is still no replacement for old school, yes we now have stainless steel and wet drums with computers so you don't have to stand on-top of the machine but after you remove the high tec. its only applying the basics of old school with a new tool. Some thing about old school and the rich history that makes this processes an Amercain icon and its disappearing.

    Here's an old staking machine I would like to get out of my shop. Not sure if it has any value.

    Outstanding condition thanks for the photo, as for the value it's priceless to me , I had a few parts back in the 80 and made a make shift staking machine, it used to eat the hides right out of your hand's because the table would move, it was never meant to be a two piece operation ,. Never seen one still in it's frame WOW'

    A few guys are looking .wish you best
