Weeden No. 3 Shaft (Double Lineshaft)
« on: October 21, 2020, 11:50:11 am »
Have always wanted one of these, but wanted to wait for a reasonably priced one in good shape. Most of it is typical Weeden, thin tin base, rough cast pulleys, but the uprights are very heavy/sturdy cast... for a toy, I am impressed!
