Ok thks , I didn't think of that, I was thinking more on the prototype line, I can't find a single shread of info on it and I've been at it for well over a month... Is there some place where I could send pics of it that someone mite have some info on it, it's a beautiful little machine and does start so I'd like to get it in the right hands, a collector or someone who would appreciate it, but hey thanks for the comment!!

Just a thought, but maybe contact someone in the area where Clinton was Mfg-ed. Sometimes the town where it was made has Info or possibly a Museum in that same area. Good luck, Chasing down history on company's is FUN.
